The family and friends of John Olender are uniting to help rasie money for funeral costs, the Navy only pays a portion. Please give today!

John Olender is from Norwalk Ca. He went to Norwalk High School and graduated. John then signed up for the Navy where he served his country for four years. John Olender passed away on Aug.3, 2012 early morning at the age of 49. John's son Andrew who is 18 yreas old, is his next of ken. Andrew was faced with his father's medical decisions, weather to give life support or not if needed, signing medical papers, and so forth. Even though Andrew had his family there to guide him through it, it is the hardest thing he had to do. Andrew knew deep down  that his father wasn't going to make it, and was so strong through it all. Andrew was by his father side when he passed. John left his only son Andrew, His brothers Mike and Dan, Mother Betty and Jerry Kudulis. John was a Brother in law, Uncle, Cousin, Nephew, Grandson, Father, and Friend. Now reality sets in, all Andrew would like for his dad is a proper funeral. While looking at the Naval benefits for burial, it doesnt cover for the whole costs. We are asking everyone to help us by donating what you can so that Andrew can lay his father to rest. Your donation will go to Betty Kudulis, his grandmother,  to make this possible for him. John was very proud of his son Andrew. From the day he was born, when he got his first mit to play Baseball, and growing up. Andrew graduated from High School last year. He is studying to become a Police Officer, and is working as a Security Officer. Like his father, Andrew is a man in uniform waiting to serve his city. On behalf of the family and Andrew Olender, Thank you so much for your help to making this possible. Your support, love, kindness, and care helps us get through this difficult time.
