Funeral Costs for Rick’s Passing

My name is Anastazia Cottrill and My family and I are fundraising for funeral costs for my father’s unexpected passing. 

A husband, a father, an uncle, a brother, a son .. my dad, Richard Smalley, of only 50 years of age.…
So very close to our hearts, my dad had such a huge impact on so many lives.  Overnight his health unexpectedly declined and he was unable to recover. He suddenly passed away in less than 24 hours.

He was so young and had the rest of his life to spend with my mother, Leonna, along with spending those years getting to know his two grandkids, 16 month old grandson Jameson and 6 year old granddaughter Chamberlen. Our hearts are truly broken and I can’t imagine what my mother is experiencing on the inside.

We now face unexpected funeral costs that have to be met by THURSDAY NOVEMBER 4th for services … we need at least $6700 dollars to cover these costs … in addition, my mother is now the sole provider for the life my father and her created together after many years of being a stay-at-home mother and wife and having worked only part-time in the last handful of years. Our family is in need of any and all support you can give during this time of grieving…My mother especially, for carving out a new way of life without her husband, the love of her life. We’re asking for your support to help us during the unexpected tragedy and with my mom going into this difficult chapter of her life. Thank you all so so much. ❤️
