I need assistance for the burial of my father

Good day to all kind-hearted Steemians.

I'm sorry if I have to do this, I NEED A DONATION FOR MY FATHER'S BURIAL.

Today my father died due to sickness and aging. I am ashamed to do this but I have to set aside it for now due to necessity. My parents are very less fortunate and the only thing that we could be proud of, is the life we have.

We have not prepared for the death of my father, who would wanted to, and if we wanted to, we could not just afford to do it.

We need monetary assistance for the burial of my father. There are so many things that we need to pay such as coffin which occupies the large portion and the cemetery. My husband has a life insurance and part of that insurance is a burial package.

We wanted to use the burial package for my father but we have to pay $800 because it is not yet fully paid. We need to pay it in full before we can assign it to my father. We have the initial cost of the cemetery at $160 but hopefully it will be lessen for charity reason.

I am only asking for the cost of the coffin and we'll just have to find a way for the other expenses.

This is my father when we visited him 2 weeks ago. They are currently living in a government provided settlement after storm Sendong took their house last December 2011.

His sickness all started when he fell down from a coconut tree to extract coconut wine 2 years ago. After that accident, his body started to lose shape and strength and since we could not afford to bring him to a specialist, me and my sisters together with my mother took care of him. We thought it was fine, until few months ago, he stopped taking his food. We tried giving him everything he wanted but unfortunately he couldn't swallow it anymore.

Until today, he passed away at the age of 78.

This was my father few months after he fell down from the coconut tree.

We missed you papa.

TO ALL STEEMIANS, THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.

Hey @barrydutton - thanks for bringing this to my attention. I intend to make a BTC donation as soon as the exchanges allow withdrawals.

·
·
·

Ah, you are a beaut.

You can still trade in there just not deposit or withdraw yet, I am taking profit tonite.

Bittrex is trading super high right MEAOW for the new Bitcoin if you want to take profit on the new coin.

Or you can use a wallet not on an exchange if you like.

Thanks my friend. She put up Litecoin and other addresses too after I asked her to, being a good idea for various reasons here I laid out for her.

(wallet lockdowns, BTC tx fees being high, etc)

·
·

I am doing my post to help her now!

·
·

You're welcome. :D

Hi Diana,

If you post your bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin address, the cryptocurrency community and others will be able to donate as well.

There are many articles on cryptocurrency here on steemit.

Best of luck if you need help... reach out.

·

Thanks for the advice. Already edited my post and gave my bitcoin wallet address.

·
·

Fantastic! Crypto is the future.

Best of luck. 👍💎🎣🐴🏆

·
·

Other addresses will make more sense.

BTC is forking in a few hours and nobody is touching their BTC for the most part and in some cases, they cannot -- the exchanges and some wallets will not let people access it for a day / day and a half or 2.

also --- BTC is currently way too expensive to send / transact with.

Post some other coins, like others have suggested. Even if you do not have a wallet offline -- post your exchange based wallets for 5 or 6 coins my friend.

·
·
·

Thank you Barry. I have added 2 coins addresses, Eth and LTC

·
·

Surprise... recheck balance for btc and ltc.

I see a typo... the correct spelling is Ethereum

Best of luck

·
·
·

Thank you so much. It means a lot to me.

My sincere condolences. Upvoted and resteemed.

·

Thank u much.

I just put thru a donation anyone mind giving me a booster ?

I am sorry to hear this. Upvoted. All the best!

·
·

Tnx it's big help

I am so sorry to learn of your loss today @dianargenti.
I wish I could take the pain away for you and your family.

·

Thanks you so much @rebeccaryan

·
·

It was the least I could do @dianargenti. I found you through Barry Dutton's post. Then, I went to your blog, and realized that you and I started on Steemit a month apart. Anyone who has stuck it out on this platform for almost a year or more, has a very strong character. I saw that in you and wanted to help. Losing a parent is very hard and a huge loss. I am so sorry.
How far off are you from reaching your $800 goal?

·
·
·

Ooh @rebeccaryan thank u coming and tnx to my friend @barrydutton it's way too long still for $400 and I don't know if I can make it. Thank you so much for your support, yes indeed I don't want to see him inside I just keep my tears and won't cry out loud I don't want my mama to see for she will cry and cry too I keep it and let it fall silently. It's more hard for my mama they been together and never been away from each other but now I don't know how my mom will handle this they will be separated forever.

·
·
·
·

@dianargenti, I have upvoted your comment to give you as many SBD as I can.
I really feel for your family and I have shared your story with others and they have upvoted you too.
It's so sad when couples are separated this way. I am thinking of you and your family.

·
·
·
·
·

I don't know how to thank u you at @rebeccaryan your such a wonderful person one of a kind here in the community. Soon everything will be fine it's my mama who we must look up too we know she's in pain much.

So sorry for you loss to you and your family :/ Wish I could do more than offer my condolences but im new around here. God bless.

·

It's okey, your thoughts is highly appreciated. Thank u so much.

I am so sorry to hear of your father's death. My father died 7 years ago and I still miss him every day. I was blessed to be able to help him with his final arrangements according to his wishes. I intend to make a donation as soon as the exchanges open the Bitcoin deposit/withdrawal options again. Prayers to you and your family.

·
