Laurel passed away yesterday unexpectedly at a Moreno Valley hospital, She was in the hospital for 3 months from 2 compound fractures and then a leg amputation but on the mend for most part until she passed away unexpectedly and Jack (her husband was by her side everyday of those 3 months while she was in there. He was very faithful to her, something you don't see that much of now a days.
Her modest funeral has been set to her wishes and is going to take every dollar of what we need to raise to pay this off, Laurel's husband is a Disabled Retired U.S. Navy Vet and this all falls on his shoulders and his pension isn't enough for monthly bills let alone a funeral, He needs every dollar of this money to bury his wife of almost 50 years, and they had lived from month to month financially and have no savings at all, they had started a life insurance for Laurel over a year ago but it doesn't take effect for 2 more years so she's going to end up with no life insurance for burial and He has no way of paying for this funeral, Her husband Jack doesn't want to ask anybody for anything, He's a proud Christian Navy man but were out of options so were asking in behalf of him, I am Jack and Laurels granddaughter, I'm in the picture above with my grandmother, my mom passed away from cancer 2 years ago and my father has never been in my life so this is the family that has raised me ever since I was little and I would do anything for them.
My Grandma is being buried at Arlington National Cemetery on the 20th of Sept. so we need to raise this money by then for her husband so He doesn't have to be burdened with trying to find a way to pay for his wife, I am currently in college and I don't have the money or I would pay this debt for my grandparents, they have done so much for me and I owe them everything, He's been through enough and is very weak right now from dealing with his wife's death.
I know there's a lot of people asking for this and that, it seems every time you turn around there's a hand out here and there and I have no right to ask anybody for anything, but if you can find in in your heart to help out this loving husband bury the love of his life it would mean the world to us and also be blessed by the gift of giving, may God return it 10 fold to everybody that helps out a good family in need. Every $1 or $5 is very appreciated it all adds up and if you can't give even a $1 or $5 then prayer is always welcome.. All the funds raised are going into a funeral account to San Jacinto Mortuary, so it's all going to them directly, God Bless you all!
