My stepdad Eugene Hicks passed away this morning. He was a good man who had a difficult life. I knew him better than my real dad. He never had any real children of his own but he was a father to me and my siblings and a wonderful grandfather to his step-grandchildren. He will be missed.
It saddens me to hear that my family can't afford to have a funeral for him and no one is willing to help them out because Eugene didn't have life insurance. Funeral homes have turned them down and there is nothing we can seem to do. They don't even offer "pauper's funerals" in Sullivan County where they live.
If you can help in any way possible it would be much appreciated because my family is in a bad place right now.
Thank you for your help,
