Uncle Tim's Funeral Expenses

My Uncle Tim was the sweetest person I have ever known. He loved all of us so much and I am sad to say that we took it for granted, because on the morning of September 5th we realized that those 2-3 calls per week and the good morning and good night texts he sent everyday without fail would never come again. This morning his little sister, my mom, should have been woke up to Happy Birthday calls and texts but instead she recieved a call from her sister-in-law that her big brother had died in his sleep. My uncle was not a healthy man. He suffered from many illnesses BUT we never expected that he would go to sleep one night at the age of 58 and never wake up. So today we spent my mom's birthday at a funeral home trying to figure out just how we are going to pay to put her big brother to rest.

I know that most people have life insurance or savings that is supposed to be there to help with these expenses but you have to understand that my Uncle Tim and his wife are both disabled by mental handicaps. So, there is no money set back to help with this and we didn't have the time to prepare. Even though he did have illnesses he was doing good, I spoke with him on the phone the night before and other than being tired from dialysis he seemed fine. So here I am reaching out to you asking for your help. I want you all to know that we are not trying do anything elabrote for his funeral. We had to choose the most economical options which is cremation and sadly we had to explain to his wife what that is, because she only knows that when someone passes away you bury them.

So, I am asking that if anyone can donate even a small amount to help we would appreciate it and even if you can't donate please pray for our family.
