I brought up in a thread last night that one of my friends from high school and middle school had his child murdered by his ex-girl friend (The baby's mother). Carbola mentioned that he wanted the details for the fundraiser that was being prepared for the baby's funeral and now that I have them I figured I would post the details with the board in case anyone else wanted to help out.
quote: UPDATE On The Contribution Account for Jonah Mendoza: Originally I was working on setting up a bank account to accept donations. In order to set up the proper account a lot of legal paperwork, time, and a headache for the family is required. Since we are pressed for time and the whole point of this is to bring ease to Jonah's family we have explored different options. As soon as the family chooses a funeral home I will notify everyone and you can go there and make a donation which will be used as direct payment towards funeral services provided. A member of Jordan's family also came up with a great idea! They have set up a Paypal donation account which you can access through the link below.
I will keep everyone posted about funeral arrangements as long as the family decides to make it an open service. Thank you so much for everyone's help! Jordan is so unbelievably thankful! If you can, please message me your name and mailing address after making a donation so I can assist the family with thank you cards. I know it seems silly and people will hesitate because they don't need to be thanked but it really helps to have easy access to addresses when writing thank you cards and not having to chase everyone down. Thanks again everyone! Your support will mean the world to baby Jonah's family! — with Jordan Mendoza.

It's amazing how much it cost to die these days. When my grandfather died and we went to the funeral home I said, " man I feel sorry for these funeral directors". Then I saw the final bill. I don't feel bad for them at all.

I don't know how much they cost, but I'm told it's more than one would expect.
