Support for the Merly’s

I have known Hank and his family for awhile now. I have watched them climb many hurdles and trials. I did not have the pleasure of knowing Gary, so I only know him through stories I’ve been told over time. I know from the kind of man Hank has been raised to be that Gary was a good father. I am making this account to try and relieve some of the strain on Gary’s son and daughter in law financially after his passing. They are needing to pay Gary’s final expenses including cremation, memorial service, and expenses from Gary’s final days that hospice was unable to cover.  They are a single income family and Hank has missed several days of work to take care of all that he can. This little family seems to have outstanding emotional support, however in times like these it can be difficult to reach out for financial help so I am hoping this can take some weight off of their shoulders so they can just focus on grieving their loss. If you are able to help I know they would greatly appreciate it.
