Help Our Family Pay Tribute to My Uncle Steve

On January 10, 2021, my family and I lost my Uncle Steve to a heart attack. Just as we started off the year with hopes that 2021 would be a brighter year, we lost one of the brightest lights of our family.

Uncle Steve's passing came as a shock to my entire family and has left us all broken-hearted. We were all caught off guard by Uncle Steve's passing. I had only recently opened the Christmas card he gave to me, just to find out that he is no longer with us. 

Uncle Steve left behind his wife, two daughters, son, and grandaughter who are most devastated by his untimely passing. He was my father's big brother and a protector of our family. He left a dent in the heart of many. He never failed to put a smile on our face when things were rough. 

In his last days, I failed to make him feel appreciated for the great family man that he was. Now, I can only wish that I had done so.

CALL TO ACTION:
In an attempt to perform one more act of appreciation for all that he was and all that he did for his family, I am inviting you to help us in paying tribute to my Uncle Steve by donating to our campaign.

FINANCIAL SITUATION:
My family is extremely burdened by the current COVID situation among other circumstances. We are hoping to have a viewing followed by cremation as he wished for. 

I will be coordinating with my Uncle Steve's wife, my father, and his other brothers to arrange the funeral. We hope to have the funding secured by Tuesday (1/19/2021) so that we have enough time to arrange a proper and honorable tribute to and viewing of my Uncle.

WHAT WILL THE FUNDS BE USED FOR?
The donations will cover body transportation, body embalming and preparation, administrative fees, coroner fees, viewing, facility fees, and more.
