Today, I am asking you to help him. We would like to give him a funeral he deserves. He was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle, and friend. He fought for our country in the Navy in Operation Iraqi Freedom and unfortunately he left the Navy with no life insurance. The Navy only contributes $300 dollars torwards a headstone. We would like to have Collin shown for people to say their last goodbyes, and then honor his wishes to be cremated. Unfortunately, the abruptness of his passing has not allowed us to have any type of savings to provide this for him.
If anyone knows of any benefits that he is entitled to that we are not aware of we would be grateful if you could point us in that direction.
Collin has always been the type of person that would give his last penny or $100 to someone in need, and never expect anything in return. Anything anyone could give to help would be the best gift that would allow his mother to honor Collin in the way that he deserves and desires. If you cannot give, PLEASE share this so that someone else may read his story and help. Words cannot even explain how much appreciation we would have.
If you would prefer to contribute directly to the family, instead of through GoFundMe, donations will be accepted in lieu of flowers.
Again, I cannot stress how appreciative we would be for any help that would allow him to have the funeral he deserves and to give his family the time they need to grieve.
More details about funeral arrangements to come Tuesday, February 17th 2015.
