I spent July in Mexico, and experienced something I don't wish upon anyone. I was leading 60 people that week with the goal of building 4 homes for families in need. We reached our goal, but not before I got the news my uncle was very sick and if I wanted to see him, I should come home immediately. I had lived next door to him for 18 years, of course I wanted to see him, but there was no way I could leave a team of 60 people to fend for themselves. I had to make the call to my family and say I couldn't come home. The only thing I could think to do was make a video and send it to him. So, I pushed record on my phone and began to tell him how much he meant to me. I told him the truth - I am who I am today because of him. He had a great impact on my life. My sister played him the video, and that night he passed away.
It's now August, and we have yet to have a memorial for him. The cost of cremation and burial is extremely expensive for my family and we need help. We cannot afford to bury my uncle on our own.
I have chosen a select group of people to help with this. Anything you give will help - even prayers. Thank you so much.
