Unexpected loss of a step-father, help Eric's mom

Around 2 weeks ago on December 10th, my good friend Eric suddenly lost his Step-dad. Like many challenges in 2020, it came out of nowhere. He immediately flew from Germany, where he is serving as a Pastor, to Greenville, South Carolina to help his mom. Because of her recent health issues and living alone not being a good option, she has decided to move back to Germany where she can be close to her son Eric. There are now a wave of costs coming their way (funeral, moving, flights etc.), I wanted to create an opportunity for us to show them how many people have their back and how people can come together when a friend needs them the most.
Those who know Eric, know his heart and how much he does for everyone in his life and especially his family and friends. This is a chance to help him and his mom make this tough time a little easier. If you have the ability to, I would ask that you come along side me to help my friend and his mom through this tough time.
