Kyle's Funeral Costs

Kyle Logan Gardner was known for his quick whit, big heart, and infectious smile. Kyle loved his beautiful daughter, family, friends, battle buddies, and the Carolina Panthers (even when they were awful) that was his team. 
Kyle was a Veteran in the United States Army Infantry and was honorably discharged as a Sergeant after doing two tours in Afganistan. Anyone who knew Kyle, knew that he was a strong willed and strong minded man, who would never back down from a challenge.
Sadly Kyle died from the disease of addiction Monday Septemeber 11, 2017, far too young. 
I am asking for help in raising money to cover some of the expenses so that his single, hard working mother can lay her only child to rest.
According to the Cremation Research Council, the average cost of a direct cremation is $1,100.
On behalf of his friends we would like this goal to be met by next Wednesday September 20, 2017. 
Absolutely any amount of money will relieve the stress of an unexpected funeral for such an awesome man. We now challenge each other to make this happen. Thank you
