This is the Bill Stallings medical & funeral expenses fund.

This site was set up to help cover medical and funeral and end-of-life expenses for my dad, Bill Stallings. All donations are greatly appreciated. He has the late stages of alzheimers disease, but he progressed quickly (since December 2011) and he has been in and out of the hospital and nursing homes ever since. He does not have life insurance because all of his policies lapsed and due to a very complicated family situation, I can not liquidate any of his assets or access any accounts to help cover his funeral expenses. He is currently being cared for at the Jesse Helms nursing center in Monroe, NC and hospice and pallative care are helping him to be comfortable as he nears the last days of his life.
If you are uncomfortable with donating on this website by credit card, you can stop by my store (Cuddly Critters children's consignment) during business hours and donate cash in our box at the front counter. Or if you aren't local, you can mail a check to the address below. Make checks payable to: Faithe Stallings, and in the note section, please put: BILL STALLINGS, medical/funeral fund. Please keep us in your prayers, and feel free to email me for updates on his condition: All cards can be mailed to: Bill Stallings, care of Faithe Stallings, PO Box 2051, Monroe, NC 28111. Thank you for your generous donation and your prayers.

**UPDATE** (Thursday, March 22, 2012)
I have received a check in the amount of $5,696.84 which covers the funeral home charges. I still need around $1,500.00 to cover the charges of the cemetary to open and close the grave. Dad got worse during the night last night and his oxygen levels dropped to 84, he's running a low grade fever, and he's not conscious or responsive. The hospice nurse said it will probably be sometime in the next 1-3 days since he hasn't had anything to eat or drink in over a week. They started him on morphine today to help with pain and agitation so he can remain comfortable. I will update his condition this evening. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. -Faithe

Daddy went to be with Jesus last night (march 22, 2012) at 10:51pm. It was very peaceful and I held his hand until Jesus walked him to heaven in his new body. Please pray for our family. I miss him so much! Funeral arrangements are as follows: visitation at McEwen funeral home of Monroe on Saturday, march 24th from 5pm - 7pm. And the funeral service will be at daddy's church, Grace Baptist church 3411 Weddington Rd in Monroe. Burial immediately following at Lakeland memorial cemetary on Lancaster hwy in Monroe. ALL are invited and encouraged to attend. Thank you!
