Richard Troost Funeral Expenses

On April 22nd 2017,  my brother Richard Troost Jr. passed away unexpectedly at the early age of 54.  Rich was  kind hearted, giving, and a loyal person.  He loved bowling, golf and most of all music.  He loved getting back in touch with his old Casper friends.  He never asked for much but was always willing to give anything to anyone and never expected  anything in return.  
For the past 15 years, life has been very difficult for Rich.  He did not have an easy life, he struggled  and was desperately searching for inner peace and happiness.   He had been longing to go back to his home in Wyoming but was never able to make it happen.  I truly believe in my heart that Rich has finally found that peace and happiness he was so desperately searching for.  I believe he is an angel in heaven now, where he is back with our Mom watching over me and all of his friends.
Richards wishes were to be cremated and spread in three places.  Golden Colorado near the Colorado School of Mines where he attended school.  Laramie Wyoming where he graduated from UW, and  felt most at  home.   Finally in the Big Horn Mountains where he truley felt at peace.
The loss of my only brother and the reality of being the only one left of my family is a very heavy burden.
 As of yet I do not  know the cause of death and I'm anxiously awaiting the medical examiners  report.  At that time he will be released and I would like to be abel to  honor his final wishes as he asked.   Rich did not have any insurance, or savings and this only adds to the already heavy burden on my shoulders.  
I am reaching out to his friends and those that have been touched by my brothers kind heart for assistance in giving Rich his final farwell.  Thank you in advance if you can find it in your heart to donate.  Your generosity and prayers would be greatly appreciated during this difficult time.
