Remembering Thomas Carl Burns

Thomas Carl Burns was born on March 9 1964 in Kansas City. Ever since he was little he's been a chiefs fan, always had a outstanding personality, and would always tell people to smile. For over 20 years he was a member of the F.O.E. In 2010 his health started to decline but in 2016 he gained more health complications and had severe psoriasis. On December 19th was the last time my grandma seen her son alive when she went to give him some food. The next day on December 20th she went to go check on him and found him dead on the floor in his room. Carl is lived on by his mother, brother, and niece in Missouri, a niece in California, and a small family in Iowa. My grandmother didn't want to ask for a high amount of donations but would be grateful for any help we would receive. She is a 79 year old hard working woman. She has been working fulltime at Walmart for 27 years to provide for herself and for her 2 sons in the family home. Ever since her kids were born she has done everything that she could to give them the best life. She has one car that she uses to go to work and to take her son's and herself to doctors appointments. She pays all the bills for the family home, her medications, and her sons medications. She works so hard to keep everything afloat, but with the death of her oldest son she won't have enough funds to get him cremated. Any donations would help my family and especially my grandma to get my uncle cremated and to help her. Her health is starting to to decline and I would really like her to retire so she can relax and live a little longer.44261042_1576986355828356_r.jpeg44261042_1576986430688540_r.jpeg44261042_1576986470865311_r.jpeg
