Scotty's funeral expenses

On Sunday, June 22, 2014, my boyfriend Matt received devastating news that his father suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. Anyone who knew his dad, Scotty, knew he was a proud father, loving son, protective brother, a giver, and a loyal friend. Because of Scotty's, young age and tenacity; He and his family were not prepared for his untimely death. He was uninsured and had no will, therefore leaving his son with the financial responsibly of burying his father. At the age of 23, Matt has now experienced the death of both parents, has no other
siblings from his dad, and unfortunately has very little family to help him carry the financial woes the passing of a love one can bring; something unfathomable to most.

Now as he and his family are struggling to come to terms with his dad's sudden and unexpected death, I thought it would be a good idea to enlist the help of those who love and know just how great of a guy Scotty IS and how much he meant to Matt, myself, his family and everyone else who has had the pleasure of knowing him. If you can find it in your heart to donate to help with the cost of Scotty’s funeral arrangements, it would be so greatly appreciated. We, as a family, just want to give him the proper burial he deserves, anything helps.
