Father it is not your fault nor was it your intention, only LOVE was. You have been a great Husband, Father, Brother, Uncle, and Friend.

A great man that gave everyone lots of love has flown home with the Angels had only one worry "What will happen to my wife and kids?".

My Father has been suffering with Lung and Liver Cancer and currently on Hospice with liver failure. My dad has been disabled all my life and even though we did not have a lot growing up one thing we had was love and that is all we needed.

My Father, a simple country boy that loved everyone without prejudice or judgement. God knows they did all they could to make sure we were happy. And was willing to help anyone, anytime, and anyway they could.

The one thing they did not do very well was plan for the future with my dad's limited income and my mother going to work very late in life and now disabled herself left very little money to plan for what could come.

Dad basically has enough insurance coverage for his memorial service. He did a reverse mortgage on the house about six months ago not knowing that his illness would decline so quick. Basically leaving my Mother and brother homeless and with an enormous amount of Debt. My mother and brother are able to walk away from the home without consequence since she was not attached to the reverse mortgage. Mom and brother will come to live with me and I will help them start a new life.

We are trying to hold it all together and sometimes I admit that its is hard but thank GOD that we have a great support system in Angel L. Rodriguez, The Hospice of Piedmont and few family member's that help with running an errand for my mom.

I am starting this fund raising effort to help with medical expenses for my father and mother and other debts that will need to be payed off after his passing. This will also assist with my mother and brother's transition into their new life.
