For a loving father and uncle

Hello family and friends. Two years ago, on a night near Thanksgiving my godfather was rushed to the hospital because he got very ill. Thanksgiving is a day to bring family together and celebrate what they are thankful for but that year the family was brought together to be there for my godfather. The next day he was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. He started getting treatment and chemotherapy. He was in remission for about a year and a half, but sadly his cancer came back about six months ago. I am heartbroken to say that on January 28, we lost our beloved family member. No one deserves to die in such a painful way. My godfather was one of the greatest men out there. He was a true gentlemen, an honest man, and a wonderful father, uncle, and godfather. He was truly a role model and he will continue being a role model to his kids and to me. He would speak his mind and defend others when they needed defending. He had such a kind heart, when you needed help he was there. Even though he was sick he would still go to work to support his family. When he got severely ill, it was our turn as a family to help support him. There was nothing else we could do anymore, and now heaven has gained yet another angel. I know from up above he will take care of his loved ones. His funeral will take place on Wednesday, February fourth and as most of us might know that funerals are expensive. My cousin is in college and has a job to support his schooling needs and my godmother works as well but that is not nearly enough to pay the funeral. So we ask you, the wonderful person who is reading this, for help by donating to our campaign. We need all the support we can get. All the money will go to my uncle's funeral. Anything counts and is truly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Hug the ones you love and let them know how much you love them.
