This fundraiser was such a blessing and made it possible to give Jeff a beautiful memorial service that he will be remembered by.

I was deeply moved by all the support given to allow us to give Jeff a beautiful memorial service.  I would like to share with everyone how your support made it possible to do all the things we needed to do to make this happen.  We were able to fly his children and their mom out for the services.  We were able to have his Memorial Service in a church reflecting his faith in the Lord.  We were able to make nice pamphlets to give out to everyone to remember him by and plus the cost of the Mortuary services.  Below is  a list of all the expenses I accrued to have all these things happen. 


Tranquility Cremation & Funeral Services    $1879

United Airlines (Kids flight)                       $1737

Hotel Stay for family                                $ 346

Urn for family                                          $ 108

Donation to Church                                  $ 200

Donation to Pastor                                   $200

Memory Brochures                                    $152

Total                                                     $4622

Their were other misc expenses not listed above. I transferred the title of Jeffs car over to his family so they could drive his car home. They received money for gas to travel home as well.  Their were also expenses of food for the Celebration of Life.  I would also like to mention that "Give Forward" does get a fee of 7% for helping with this fundraiser so the actual amount I will be getting reimbursed is $4515.
