I am very sad to say that my Father passed away on Tuesday night. Rest in peace Dad. Nicholas Ketterman was a free spirited man and as a result was often misunderstood. Not an angel by any means but not all bad either. He served his country and should be honored. I have learned a lot from him and we shared many good times together. We had been working very hard at bringing him here to Oregon from South Dakota to be with family on his final days because we knew they were numbered. Between the lengthy interstate transfer process and the VA dragging there feet we didn't get it done in time. Thanks for your service Dad! He had no money and we have been struggling to get back on our feet as well after shutting down the business and having to sink all we had into the house in Rainier due to foreclosure on the Portland house. Now the VA is still kicking us while we are down by only providing a $945 death benefit leaving us to come up with another $485 just for cremation charges. If that isn't enough we also have to come up with this cash before tomorrow evening because of a state law that says you must bury or cremate your family within 72 hours of the T.O.D. If anyone is able to help it would be GREATLY appreciated and help restore my faith in humanity! I have contributed to many causes before and will not hesitate to pay it forward to anyone else in need. Thank you for reading and help if you can.
