The Shirt Family Mourning Their Loss

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that I  Josiah Shirt, lost my father, Samuel Shirt, on February 3, 2019.  His sudden passing has left his family devastated and heartbroken.  We took him to the hospital with stomach pain and was hospitalized and had emergency surgery.   When his family thought he would recover and come home, he passed away after being hospitalized for 83 days, much too soon, at age 52. Nothing could have prepared his loving wife, Mabel and 5 children ages 22, 20, 14, 11 and 9 for this sudden loss.   

He was a god-fearing man, a loving husband, elder and father who worked hard to support his family.  He was very strong and he cared deeply about others.  Even while on his sickbed in the hospital, he asked about how others were doing.

Why this fundraiser is Needed Now

We are kindly requesting your help in raising funds for funeral costs and outstanding medical bills and to lift the financial burden on our family  This hardship leaves a heavy load upon the shoulders of the young but oldest son, Josiah.  In our country , the hospital will not release my father's remains until the debt is paid in full while charges keep increasing daily as long as he remains there in the hospitals mortuary .   All donations are appreciated no matter how small.

We are reaching out to the community and international brotherhood of friends,  those who want to help our family.
