Matthew Welker final expenses

This is my husband Matthew S. Welker. He was a truck driver for a company he adored called American Central Transportation out of Liberty/Kansas City MO area. He was the love of my life that I lost on Sept 13, 2018.  He was found in the bunk of his truck passed away by some of his co-works at ACT.  My heart and the hearts of our family are completely devastated and broken. As his wife it kills me to ask for help, but I need help to bring him home and to lay him to rest. As of now we do not know nor understand what has happened to him. He was healthy as a ox and now he is gone. Currently he is at the Jackson County Medical examiners office and we are awaiting news on when he can come home for his rest. He was a dedicated husband, son, brother, loving uncle and dear friend.  We had no burial policy to lay him to rest with and that is what these funds will be used as. The money will be used to bring him home from Kansas City MO, lay him at peace in Seymour MO. If any funding is left over it will go to be used on his final expenses. I am currently not working and will be looking for a job as soon as I can. I am not sure what the cost is going to be that is why the goal is set so high. As soon as I find out when his body will be released, arrangements will be made.  Please feel free to share this to all that loved and cared for him as much as our family does.  To everyone that donates from the bottom of all of our hearts thank you. 

Love to you all
