Remembrance of Life Expenditures

Their story starts 8 years ago, which seems like a life time, but for Cheryl not nearly long enough. They met through a mutual friend through YMCA. For whatever reason fate works to bring 2 people together and it turns into a match to be envied. That is what happened to Ezra and Cheryl. Love bloomed suddenly and awesomely, very quickly. Soon they were engaged and running off to Las Vegas for a romantic Elvis wedding in the chapel of love. Life wasn't always easy but somehow these 2 managed to make it work through good times bad times and everything in between. It wasn't perfect but it was perfect for them. You couldn't help but get the butterflies with them anytime they looked at each other. It was heartwarming. But as life does to so many of us,  things happened. Benefits dried up and jobs changed along with financial hardship. Soon health issues arose with no money to pay for the doctor and hospital bills. Bills got behind and things were strained. Then the unforseen happened. Thursday Night August 31st Ezra fell asleep and didn't wake up. This has left not only a family without a son, brother, uncle, and grandson. But it has left a devastated and destitute widow left to mourn. With the added stress of not being able to pay for his funeral or after expenses. I am asking with heart felt sympathy to please give. We all Love Cheryl and Ezra and I can not think of a single person who is more deserving of our support and outpouring of love. We arent hoping for a miracle but asking for help in this great devastating time of need. Help Send Ezra Home To Our Heavenly Father.
