Funeral Expenses for the Rutherfords

Early morning, March 10, 2019, tragedy hit one of my best friends and her entire family. Her brother, Tony Rutherford, passed away in a sudden and tragic car accident at the young age of 27. 
   His parents, now having to live every parents nightmare. His sisters, having to lose their brother and lifelong best friend. His nephew, who will remember him only by photo. His countless other family and friends, having to share an ache in their heart. He was a son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson, and friend, and will be missed by so many.
   As he was so young, with so much life and opportunities before him. This comes as a devastating shock to their family. It should open up all of our eyes to how precious life is, and how soon someone we love dearly could be gone in an instant.
   We cannot heal their hearts, or end their grief. However, I pray to God we can help them with their finances. Laying someone to rest is quite a financial burden. As parents, our worst nightmare is having to lay our child to rest. Nothing could have prepared them for this. 
   I am asking anyone and everyone to please donate and give as much as you can. Every little bit counts so even if it's $10, it all adds up. Hopefully we can ease the burden during this horrific and painful time. Please, help me support this family through prayers, and any donation you are able to do. Thank you and God bless you all.
