Emanuel "Rick" Bennett Home Going

Where do I begin? I am at a loss for words as this was totally unexpected. I have lost the love of my life. Emanuel Kendrick Bennett aka Rick/Ricky, was my heart and my world. He was a good man. A good husband, father, son, brother and friend. To know Rick was to love him. He affected so many people's lives, the outpouring of love has been overwhelming. If you knew Rick, you would know that he was an incredibly private person. He never asked anyone for anything. But now we need your help family and friends. Rick wanted to come back home to NJ. We would love to have his final resting place to be where all of his family and friends are, his home. It's sad to say but we weren't prepapred for this. Rick was 37 years old and relatively healthy as far as we knew. We never imagined we would have to bury him at such a young age. I am asking all that knew and loved him to help us with his funeral and burial expenses. Our goal also includes transporting him back to NJ which is very expensive. Any and all help you can offer is greatly appreciated.
