Shawn Martin Funeral Expenses

Early this morning we lost a beloved family member. Aunt LaVerne needs to come up with at least $1500 to make a down payment for the funeral. Shawn did not have any insurance. If we all pitch in as much as we can afford, we should be able to come up with the money to help alleviate the stress. I started the campaign, but have set it up w/ Aunt LaVerne's account, so the money will go straight to her. Any money above the initial $1500 will go towards funeral expenses and/or medical bills from the hospital. If you can't give, please offer up prayers for the health and strength of the family members.
Shawn meant the world to so many of us...his smile always brightened up any room he was in. He will be missed greatly by so many of us.
