Funeral for Elias Papadimitriou

Dear Friends and family.

Im asking for help to pay for my fathers funeral and burial expenses
The funeral home wants all the money upfront and we are having some difficulty... This all started on October 8th when we where just starting our vacation the day we arrived he had a episode he became unresponsive on the couch he was rushed to Dr phillips hospital and was diagnosed with a stroke... The hospital never told us how devastating his brain injury was from the stroke and gave us false hope for weeks they told us that he looked alittle better but was baffled why he wasnt gaining full conscious... It was only when the doctors brought up that hospice was his only option is when we got communication that there was no hope and afew days latter he passed away....After hoping and waiting for 6 weeks we where shocked for not knowing how bad his condition was...... Now we are in limbo waiting for him to be buried in Florida a NIGHTMARE the funeral home wants all the money upfront some $4,505 I was able to get about $2,500 together but I am still short.... My father was an American hero reciving the brownze star for heroism and the Army  Commendation metal while serving in Vietnam
