Funeral/Burial Expenses

At 11:52 P.M. on Wednesday, December 4th, 2019, my brother Robert P. Bartman Jr., passed away and went to be with our mother and other close family members. He was known as Bobby and was loved by so many people. Bobby was 48 years old. He was diagnosed early in life with something called Angelman’s Syndrome. He was always happy. He enjoyed sitting on our porch and watching the cars drive by. He would always yell hi to everyone he saw and would keep yelling hi until that person answered him back. When Bobby was around 11 years old, he was placed into a group home with Prospectus Berco because our mother was having bad back issues and had a stroke. She was no longer able to care for him full time. He would come home for weekends and holidays. When mom could no longer bring him home, I brought him to my home. He was my mother’s joy and I know she was worried about what was going to happen when she passed away.  I continued bringing Bobby home after our mom passed on weekends and holidays until I made the move to Delaware. I recently started the process of transferring him to a placement in Delaware. Bobby has some life insurance but it isn’t going to be enough for his burial with our mom and his headstone. 

This was very sudden and unexpected. Any help will be greatly appreciated. If anyone has any questions, please just ask me.
