Love for Papa Joe & Baby Joe

Family & Friends- It is with overwhelming sadness that I am announcing the sudden and unexpected passing of my father, Joe Duffey, on June 27th followed by the sudden and Devestating passing of my baby brother just 4 weeks later on July 31st. They were best friends, virtually inseparable, and shared a father-son bond that was so strong. Although, I am finding it difficult to get through each day, I am able to find some comfort knowing they are together again. As you can imagine, our family's grief is overwhelming based on the circumstances. Many of you know, my beloved father was diagnosed with Leukemia two years ago and endured agrees dive treatment to receive a bone marrow transplant. He was just 3 weeks away from receiving the transplant after finding a 100% match. He fought so hard and it's just hard to comprehend knowing he was so close. It seems so unfair. My Dads full military service was planned for August 4th but needed to be postponed due to my brothers passing. My baby brother Joe, was also battling an illness but following Dads passing, his grief became immeasurable and every day was a struggle. Joe suffered a cardiac arrest on July 29th and passed away just 48 hours later. As I mourn my father and my brother, I am planning a dual service so we can all come together to honor them, say our final good-byes, and lay them to rest. A friend encouraged me to start a Gofundme campaign to ask for your help so I am able to cover the funeral expenses. I would be forever grateful to anyone who could help. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance to everyone.
