Help me move my friends resting place

Thu Nov 16, 2017 8:01 pm

Hey all! I posted in the thread about his headstone but this deserves it's own thread.

This could not come at a worse time, but I can't control that unfortunately.

I was just contacted by the funeral home today and they are telling me it will cost at a minimum of $8500.00 to move Tyson and re-bury him. I don't even think that includes the casket costs.

Tyson was a dear, dear friend who I loved very much. We lost touch years ago because I was getting clean and he was still struggling. Fast forward to this year and I find out he died. At 36. :(

I have not spoken to Tyson in over 7 years but he was a huge part of my life for a long, long time and I love him like a brother. He was my best friend in the entire world.

Some of you helped me in my quest to get him a new headstone and that is greatly appreciated. I am in your debt forever. I mean that. When I placed his headstone, I found out he was buried in a wasteland in what could only be called a paupers grave.

I now want to move his body. This is a difficult task as he is in Manor, TX and I'm trying to move him to Overland Park, KS.

My father has 3 graves available and he agreed to donate on to Tyson. He also is donating a thousand dollars. I will be putting in money myself as well and may move forward on this and try to recoup some costs of this with my Go Fund Me.

I hate asking for money. I simply cannot afford it. I have to put it on my credit line to do this, but I have to.

Take a moment, read this and share it. I'd really appreciate it ILF family. :)

Thanks

$10 each is only $890, but that's better than nothing :)

Is burning the body, spreading the ashes somewhere nice and giving the money to charity/living who need it an alternative?

It’s a shame that someone’s death should cost their close ones, as if death itself wasn’t enough.

However this goes and whatever you choose I hope you’ll feel content about it, jwar.

Unfortunately that part isn't up to me. His father has say in that. If it were up to me, I would have him cremated and then moved to a grave. I would love to sprinkle his ashes in Japan as well. He loved Japanese movies, anime, robots and just everything about the place. He never got to go though. It would make him smile I'm sure.


As far as reaching my goal.

I'm realistic and am almost positive I won't. However, what I will do instead if I can't is try to make where he is a bit nicer. Get an in ground flower pot. Maybe something else nice. I dunno. I'll come up with something.
