Raised by 201 people in 25 days
My son Joseph Allan Forrester has tragically left this world. He was 23 years old. He was funny and handsome and had so much life to give. Joey suffered from depression and addiction. He lost his life yesterday 5-22-18, when he jumped off a bridge in Cedar Hill and drowned. I am asking all of you to help us give my son a proper funeral and burial. I am asking so his sisters and I can have his final resting place we can go to.This is the hardest thing any of us will go through. I am reaching out now because we do not have the means for a funeral. ANY amount is appreciated. I am putting an estimate of the expense and will adjust as needed. This is the ONLY go fund me for my son.

Joe was layed to rest Friday June 1st 2018. It was beautiful....he had an amazing funeral because of you. Thank each of you for sharing...for the love and kindness. I will be creating a gofundme for the headstone. We have time before it can even be placed. I would love if those who knew my boy would go on the obituary memorial page on chapel hill and post memories....it is what will keep him alive in each of us. I love you all and no words to say except thank you....to the moon and stars.

Please share. Unexpected expense with the plot is a worry. I know it will be ok. Thank each of you for your support. I will at some point reach out to everyone individually. I wish he could see how much he was loved. I miss him so so much...no words for the gratitude and just amazement of the kindness of others.
Your contagious smile....

People are advising me to update the amount due to unforseen expenses and time off work. Honestly I can not think. Just grateful to be able to bury him. I am just because it might help financial things. But really nothing helps. If we hit the 15000 i know know funeral things are ok. All we need right now. I am not calling today. No funeral stuff. We are going to try and have a fun day today. It is what it is.

Please read below: thank you

In the last few months there has been a LOT of ugly....In the last few months hateful things and behaviors have happened(including myself)...with this being said....I want everyone to KNOW that anyone who loved my boy has the right to attend his service and say goodbye. This includes his ex girlfriend and his biological father. It is what HE would want. With this being said....at his service I expect decency, love, and support for all grieving. His young sisters will be there. No ignorance will be tolerated in ANY way at his service. He loved so many of you...and would want us all to hold on to each other...love and support each other at this time.
Love you all...thank you all so so much for your love and support
