What is crowdfunding?

Gavin left this life on the 17th of September, 2018. He slept and never woke again. He walks with the angels now and behind him, still here, he has a loving sister, adoring children, a father, many relatives and friends. He's well thought of by so many and remembered with so much love. I'm still collecting stories and am touched by how much love there is out there coming to us, his loved ones and circulating between the wider community of all who felt touched by Gavin's life. I plan to honour his life in style. And to that effect there will be music, a poem written especially for him, people travelling from near and far, a book created to hold our memories with photos, the showing of cine films converted to present day technology and so much more. We have a wonderful celebrant coming from Scotland to lead the funeral ceremony, who also needs paying and our orders of service which I'l hoping will be a keepsake too. For the wake it's about the coming together of those who loved Gavin in a warm and soothing environment where joy can be enabled to mingle with sadness; where our grief can find a focus on celebrating my brother's life and truly commemorating it. We're going to show his sons that his father was well loved and honoured and that he spread a little magic even through times that were tragic. His troubles are over now and he is beyond this plain, beyond the veil with peace and love surrounding him. So now it is our time to surround ourselves with the same, to truly encapsulate all that my courageous and beautiful brother had in his heart. I wish to commemorate his life with all of the style, the love and just everything that I can bring together to best get to the essence of the man and keep his memory alive within our hearts.
