After a lengthy battle with declining health, with my mother as his caretaker, Mike went home to be with his lord on the morning of November 30, 2019. He leaves many behind, including my mother (his wife), 3 children, 3 step-children, 18 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
As a result of his lengthy battle with his health, medical bills and bills in general have unfortunately started to pile up. My mother is struggling to make ends meet, as her income alone cannot supplement all that Mike helped to provide.
On top of that, Mike unfortunately did not have any life insurance, and their savings was depleted with the mounting costs of medical care.
It goes against her nature to have to ask for help. So I am asking in her stead.
Mike was her husband, her friend and her partner for nearly fifteen years. He was a true soldier for the lord, stewarding many of us not only to salvation, but to finding a greater understanding of ourselves, and a deeper love of others. He instilled not only a devotion to our lord, but a genuine foundation of love, morality, and family values in us. He was, in a sense, the "backbone" of our family, the strength, the moral-compass, the provider and the teacher for each and every one of us.
It would mean so much to us to be able to honor Mike's memory and pay tribute to our love for him with a funeral. Financially, this is not something she can afford.
I am asking for donations, of both financial support and of prayers to help us honor the memory of the man who touched all of our lives so deeply. Any aid will be greatly appreciated.
