My brother, Steven passed away on September 5, 2012. He was diagnosed with terminal mouth cancer a few years ago. He lost his job do to his illness and was on a very fixed income. My sister in-law has no way to pay the funeral bill. The total for the funeral is $3,000. We have asked family and friends to help with the cost but it needs to be paid by Monday for him to have a small service on Tuesday. He will be buried in Pegram at Veterans Cemetery. Which is a blessing since he had no life insurance.
I am asking for anyone out there that knows of any kind of funeral assistance that people can apply for. Steve’s Widow “Barbara” has no insurance and no money for the funeral. Steve has five children, two of them with Barbara and one is still in high school. I have done everything I know and been and asked everyone I know to ask. The funeral homes will not take payment arrangements and we need help! I would like to know if anyone knows of any resources that might help pay for the funeral.
