Funeral Fund For Robert M. Brown

Robert was Dig. with stage 4 small cell terminal Lung cancer Back in October 2014.  The cancer spread to most of his body very fast.  He had to quit his job on october 31 2014.  I moved my dad into my home the first week of November after he had pins and rods put into his femer bone to keep the bone from fracturing.   He had his port to start chemo put in on Friday Jan 2 2015.  On Sunday morning at 6:11 am, my dad passed away.  He fought the cancer for 3 months.  He is no longer in pain which I am so thankful for.  But now we are faced with the fact that dad does not have any life insurance.  It was too late to get it for him when he found out in October.  I am asking for help with paying for his cremation.  The funeral home said it was going to cost 2600 to have everything done that needed to be.  The money will cover the cremation, filing of the death certifcate, and take home urn.  I am asking for the kindness and support of friends, family, and the comminity to help in reaching our goal to have my dad have finally rest.
