We received a few recent donations toward Scott's funeral costs and I'd like to thank everyone again who has so generously helped Jonathan and I during this difficult time. We have to come up with $5800 by December 28th to pay the funeral home and so far have raised $2940. It has helped us so much. Thank you all. Without Scott's income it has also helped with living expenses until I return to work in January. This has been the most difficult thing I've ever had to endure because in the past any difficulties I had were shared with Scott. He had a way of always making me feel like everything would be okay. No matter how bad things got or how scared I was, he always made it better. I miss that strength of character that he had, that steadiness and optimism he always had.
Jonathan and I would like to thank everyone who has helped us during this time of need for our family. We raised less than the goal but still raised almost $2800 which will almost pay for half the funeral costs. We are incredibly thankful and humbled that so many helped us raise that much to help offset the costs. Scott had so many plans and was looking forward to doing so much this next year both around the house fixing things up (like the roof) and going to Virginia to help with the Semco plant there get their inventory in order. He was very much looking forward to these things. He had more than 100 hours of vacation time accrued at work, he almost never took time off and was very dedicated to his job. I am still crying daily and missing my very best friend greatly. More than 26 years of memories are what I have left and it's still not enough. Hug your loved ones, tell them every day you love them because you never know when something sudden like this will make it impossible to say it just one more time.
We are almost halfway to the goal of $5000 for Scott's funeral costs. Right now we have raised almost enough to pay for his headstone and plot. So I want to thank everyone so very much for helping Jonathan and myself during this difficult time. I am continually impressed with the spirit of human kindness, compassion and community. Thank you to you all.
I want to sincerely thank everyone who has so generously helped our family during this difficult time. Today is the funeral. We've raised less than half the goal amount so far but every cent helps to pay for the funeral costs and Jonathan and I truly appreciate every one of you who have donated both time, prayers and money to help our family.
