Vinnie Baskerville's Funeral Costs

My brother, Vincent "Vinnie" Baskerville, passed his life on Saturday morning at 5:20am (9/1/18) suddenly after being in the hospital for just a week.

Vinnie had gone to the walk-in clinic for a lower back pain and once his X-rays were processed and viewed he was told to head immediately to the emergency room. He was diagnosed with a severe case of pneumonia, which affected both of his lungs and after three days in the hospital he was placed in the ICU for three additional days where the doctors treated him with antibiotics and pain meds to attack the pneumonia.

Although he was given medication for the pneumonia, his blood pressure and heart rate never stabilized. The doctors were unable to find the underlying cause of his failing blood pressure and heart rate, which resulted in kidney failure. Vinnie died two times before being taken off the ventilator. 

Unfortunately, his wife and family are unable to pay for his funeral expenses. He leaves behind a sick wife and 3 sons. 

Whatever you could do to help defer the costs of his funeral expenses would be greatly appreciated.
