Single Worker Needs Help to Pay for Loved One's Funeral Expense

The Details:

I am a single man who recently relocated to Atlanta area from New York City. I love sports, reading, riding my bike, and spending time with family. I am a very hard worker, and am employed full-time at a restaurant.

My oldest brother recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. He did not have life insurance, so myself and other family members are all working together to come up with the funds to pay for his funeral arrangements. Due to the travel costs and missed time from work, I have not been able to come up with the full amount I have taken responsibility to pay. My small savings was quickly outweighed by the financial hardship of this situation, and I do not have any way of affording this expense without assistance.

I would be very grateful if Modest Needs could help me with my share of the funeral costs. This would truly be a blessing for me and would lift this financial burden from me, as well as my other family members.

Your help would alleviate the stress of trying to cover my bills while helping to pay for my brother's final arrangements, and will allow me to remain on track and meet all of my financial obligations. I thank you for your consideration during this difficult time.
