A Heroe’s Farewell (R.I.H. Daddy)

August 4, 2018 I made a call home that will forever change the the very fabric of me and my family’s lives.  
My mom answered the phone and said “your dad just had a heart-attack” instantly I could feel the energy drain from my body! I knew by the tone of her voice and feeling in my gut that this time everything wasn’t gonna be alright. 

No sooner than I mustered up the energy to make a post requesting prayer, I got a call telling me I needed to come home and that “Daddy” was gone.

Since then I’ve gotten an overwhelming out-poring of LOVE & SUPPORT through text, emails, voicemails, Facebook post and calls; that I am ill-prepared to answer right now.
Several folks have asked me what they can do and how they can help, some even offering monetary gifts to assist with offsetting the cost of his final arrangements.

This link is for those of you who want to contribute something, and can’t be here in Boston for his services. 

There is so much more to this than getting a coffin, a plot and making arrangements. There are a host of friends & family traveling afar to pay their respects and we’d like to make them as comfortable as we possibly can with your help. Again this is for those that want to give, for those that have asked what to give, and for anyone else who wants to make a contribution to me and my family during this time of grief.

On behalf of myself and my Family I would like to thank you in advance for your generosity and for ALL your Prayers & Well Wishes thus far. 

Blessings
Cherish your Family while you still can!
