Hello, I am seeking support to assist in covering the debt from my father’s funeral. I have a beautiful family whom I love more than anything else in this world. My wife and I have been together since 2001 and have been married since August 2009. We have three young children. My son is 9 years old, and my daughters are 7 years old and 2 years old. I work two jobs to help support us. My wife is currently not working as she is taking care of my youngest daughter at home.
Up to now, it has been a struggle to make ends meet, but each month we are able to do so. However, my father recently became ill back in March 2023. He was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer. He was hospitalized for 2 months undergoing chemotherapy to battle his cancer. He seemed to be getting better, but took a turn for the worse in late June. On July 3rd he passed away leaving a void that will never be filled. It was hard seeing him slowly decline as he was one of the strongest people I have ever known. Even while in the hospital he displayed a great deal of strength, refusing to allow us to see how fragile he truly was feeling. He was a big part of our lives and there will never be a day where I will not miss him.
My wife and I had to cover the cost of his funeral expenses which were about $10,000 between the wake and the burial. We ended up needing to dip into our savings account to cover the cost, but have found ourselves in a bit of a bind. I have had to take out 2 loans and am almost maxed out on my credit card. Even buying minimal purchases like groceries and gas has become very difficult.
I am reaching out in hope that there is something you could do to help my family and I during these difficult times. I have documentation of the funeral home expenses that I can provide if needed. The loss of my father has been a very difficult hit to my family and I and the financial stress I currently find myself in is not helping at all. I hope there is something that can be done to help. Regardless, I appreciate you taking the time to read this request and for your consideration.
