Recent Passing of my Grandfather - COVID19

Seasons Greetings! Unfortunately, my grandfather recently passed away due to compilations exacerbated by COVID-19/Coronavirus. He already has had a history of angina (chest pains) due to coronary artery disease. I made this GoFundMe page in order to help raise money to cover the expenses of the cremation and placement of the urn of ashes in the mausoleum. This recent unfortunate event was coupled with another unfortunate event where my mom received a layoff from her job as she works in a casino. I want to work, but unfortunately, I have a heart problem and coronavirus cases has been ballooning everyday in the city I live in. 

These past few years, and especially these past couple years has been really difficult for me along with my family. This year was by far the worst for me and many of you guys who are reading this too. I was not able to see my grandfather since March due to coronavirus restrictions that were implemented. 

My grandfather was like a second father to me. When I was younger, my parents would work long hours coupled with an hour and a half to two hours commute to and from work. My grandfather would be the one driving me along with my sister to and from school.  When I was younger, grandpa would be there for me whenever I was in and out of the hospital due to a heart problem and heart surgery. Even though finances were hard at times, and even though he was a thrifty person, he would still buy me the things I wanted.  He would tolerate and be patient with me whenever I would have bad temper. He was an indescribably nice person who was also generous and patient.

My family and I definitely will appreciate and cherish each contribution towards this GoFundMe. Thank you in advance : )
