Rick Bennett Funeral Fund

If you know my dad, you know how much of a funny, loving, caring, and above all, what a generous man he was...but even if you didn't know him that well, he had this amazing way of making everyone feel like they'd known him for years. A day without him, his laugh, & his stories, feels like a year, and we're trying so hard to unite and cope as a family, because that's what we need and have to do. As we are starting to do that, we also have a big amount of stress on our shoulders covering the cost of the funeral, future bills, and living expenses. My mom is unemployed, and awhile ago retired from her job at the University of Michigan to help care for me when I was sick. Since then, my dad's income has been what was mostly supporting our family. Now with him gone, frankly, we feel so lost. Losing a father, and husband is hard enough, but to also have worries about how we're going to pay things, it's really taking a toll. If anyone would like to donate to help and support our family, we would appreciate it SO much!! Any size donation means the world to us, and especially this time of year with Christmas being so close. We also want to say a huge thank you to all of our family and friends these past couple days who have done nothing but be supportive and loving towards us. It helps more than all of you know. Thank you!!
