About this fundraiser


Dear Friends and Family,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am reaching out to you with a heavy heart to share a difficult situation that my family and I have been facing.

In January of 2022, my beloved father passed away after a brave battle with multiple myeloma and kidney failure, just a month before his second grandson was born. It was his dying wish to have a proper burial, but with no savings or life insurance in place, the financial burden fell on me. I had to use all available resources, including maxing out credit cards, to arrange for his burial.

Despite my best efforts, the expenses exceeded what I could afford. Thankfully, the funeral director, who happens to be a childhood friend and a kind-hearted individual, allowed me to make partial payments and set up a payment plan for the remaining balance. So far, I have managed to pay over $8000 towards the costs, but there's still a balance. I'm trying my best to pay this remaining balance and purchase my father a head stone.  

My father was a remarkable man, having dedicated over 40 years of his life to teaching. He was a proud graduate of Savannah State University and possessed a heart of gold, always caring for others.

I am reaching out to you all for any assistance that you may be able to provide. Your support, whether big or small, would mean the world to me and my family during this challenging time. Please consider helping in any way you can, as it would be deeply appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to read this  and for considering offering your help. Your kindness and generosity will never be forgotten.

With heartfelt thanks,
David Wallace
