Leo Stoner's Funeral Expenses



I really dont know where to start, other than Leo was loved by many people. As im crying writing this, I really DID NOT want to ask for help. Im his sister and i guess Leo would say i am the strong one in the family but i am very weak. Those who knew Leo AKA Bub as we call him , knew he had a heart of gold and always tried to live his life to the fullest. He was a good child and always getting in to something. He had a passion for  art and drawing pictures. He was always the center of attention. He loved to sing, dance, and was always a jokester. He had a beautiful soul and was very close with family and friends. He was always the center of attention making sure everyone was happy, smiling, and laughing. He loved camping, fishing, and karaoke and had many many friends. Everyone who crossed his path always remember him and never forgot him. Throughout his life he had many struggles he was dealing with. He became very depressed during the end of his life. He was struggling for along time with a heroin addiction that I believe that led him down a road of destruction. Everyone told him that if he quit his life would get better. He traded one addiction for another which led to drinking and falling deeper and deeper into depression.  He tried so very hard to get his life back together every second of day . Even though he felt this way , you could not tell because he always had a smile on his face despite being lost inside, despite the struggles, despite the pain. I talked to him every single day and told him how much his family and everyone else loved him so much. With the fight he was battling inside it took a toll on him and I remember sitting down not even a couple days ago and he told me he couldnt do it anymore. That even though he had quit heroin, his life didnt feel any different. I know he didnt want to leave this world or leave his family and friends because he talked everyday about his life and tried to tell everyone else to live it to the fullest. I miss him so so so much and Mom and Dad are heartbroken and devastated by this. They didnt expect to lose there son. He was doing so much better but was so very tired in the end. So with this, I am asking and believe me I really dont want to ask for anything. Whether its a penny or a dollar, whatever you can help with. Please help our family in this time of need. I promise God will see you as doing a good deed  and it will be paid back with a beautiful return. In this time of need we really need your help. I dont want to bury my brother but i have no choice. Bub, We love you and miss you. You will be forever in our hearts. Love your Mom and Dad, your sisters and your whole family and friends. REST IN PEACE!!!! LEO AKA BUB STONER  6-6-17
