Funeral Expenses for our Daddy/Update
$7,255 of $12k goal
To cover the cost of funeral for Rogerio Marques De Souza, who is the father of my niece and nephew's, Lalena and Kyle and Joshua Batchelor.
Rogerio was living in Canada for 25 yrs, but did not have a status, and became ill with cancer, and passed away Saturday morning, January 18th 2014, and because he was not legal in Canada, their is no funding available to cover the cost of his funeral.
My sister who has custody of the children, is on ODSP, and does not have the finances to pay for his funeral. The children have been through so much, in the last 3 yrs, losing their only Aunt, 2010, 10 months later their grandfather, and then a family friend, they knew as Uncle, and in August 2013, their grandmother ( Guardian/Caregiver) was on life support, ( Thank God, survived) and now their father has passed away. I have been told, that their is NO funding. Please help, it is already devastating enough for these children, and now they are worried about how to pay for their Daddy's Funeral
I am astonished at how many kind hearted and caring people their are, that offered to help, and did not know this family. From the bottom of my heart, and On behalf of my niece Lalena, and nephew's Joshua and Kyle, a very big Thank You! and may God Bless you!
Thank you! To all the kind hearted and compassionate people, who have generously given from their heart, not even knowing this family, it restores faith knowing their are so many caring people in this world.We have been advised that the Ryan Odette Funeral Home, on Dundas St in Toronto, has generously offered to pay for the funeral cost, so any funds raised will go to the children, and to assist with their education.
I would like to Thank each and every person, who has supported this cause, and want you to know, that your help is greatly appreciated by the family. It is amazing, and overwhelming to receive this type of support from strangers, when they have been through so much this week, trying to find the way to give their father a proper funeral. God Bless!
If anyone would like to attend the Funeral Home, it is Ryan and Odette at 1498 Dundas St W, Toronto, from 5-9 pm tonight, and service Saturday morning
