Hello I am from Southern Indiana, I'm reaching out to God's people to help me to go visit my 77 year old sick father who lives in rapid City South Dakota. I have not seen him in 3 years due to his health he is afraid to travel raising money so that I can go spend some time with him and help him plan his  end of Life journey,  he was recently in the hospital for internal bleeding of the esophagus he has a pacemaker already , he needs to be on oxygen at home but he is being a little stubborn!!  I don't want him to be alone during this time . I want to use the donations for his cremation that is what he has requested , also do some special things with him before he leaves this Earth. I will need to rent a car once I am there I would like to drive him up into the hills that is why he moved there many years ago. He doesn't live in the best location or have the best apartment so I would like to perhaps rent  us a cabin up in the hills while I am there would even be grateful for a motel even with kitchenette like to do some home cooking for him since his apartment has no stove or sink , I wanted to spend some extra quality time with him  especially with the holidays coming most likely his last and give him a great memory of Time of Us together at the end of his journey!! Any help would be deeply appreciated I will use the donations for the cremation, airline ticket, rental car an a place to stay while I'm there, I myself  am on limited income that is why I am reaching out to God's people today, Thank you and God bless each and everyone of you!! Also if possible I would like to take a couple of his grandkids I know that would be the greatest surprise in the world for him even if I could just bring a couple of them!!  I will be calling Kirk funeral home of Rapid City tomorrow to find out there cheapest cremation he does not want a big funeral. I know he is stressing over this worrying about us kids being left to deal with all of this I thought that would be one less worry for him.None of us really know how much time we have left on this Earth I have really not been able to see him much in the last 20 years mainly due to financises, my car was never good enough to travel the 1,200 miles. So I am praying to God that some good souls out there will reach out and bless us!! I just pray he makes it through the holidays Thank you everyone and God bless 🙏
