Nelson Family Home Renovation

I am attempting to raise money so that my family can have a room renovated in their home, by professional contractors. It was in this room, that my little brother, Dillon, recently took his own life. It has been one month as of today.  My parents, my mom and my step father, cannot bear the thought of moving away and out of the home. They feel he is there and they cannot leave him. We have a younger sister, in high school, who was present at the time of his death and who still lives here.  Although I wish they would move and let this house go, they insist that this is good for them, for healing. My mom feels closer to my brother when she is there. In order for them to stay, there is at least one room that needs to be completely redone. A room that my family cannot bear to see, cannot open the door to, until it has been redone. There are memories in this house that bring comfort to my family, but this room...this memory needs to be demolished. Please, if you can, if you have the means to,  help a grieving family in need so that they may stay in their home where they feel at peace. Any donations toward this room renovation would mean so much, as my parents do not have any money to do this for themselves. Any other way that a person would feel called to help- please, do. I am asking this on behalf of my stepfather, my younger sister, and most of all my mother, who has lost her darling baby boy, on the day before Mother's Day this year.
