Financial Support for Brent

Financial Support for Brent

From Andrea Richardson

With the recent passing of his grandmother, Brent has too much going on to think about the cost of a funeral and the associated costs with handling all of the legal issues that might be involved in the aftermath.

Update: With the passing of his grandmother, the Power of Attorney is now void. Currently Brent is unaware how exactly things will unfold; however, I did make him aware of the campaign and ask if he would need financial support to take care of anything. As expected, he said he did not need anything, but anything collected could certainly be used on debt incurred on her behalf, past and future.


For the past few months, Brent has been consumed with the difficult task of being the primary caregiver for his elderly grandmother. Listening to him express his concerns for her as he tried to work with his family and the nursing home to ensure that she was provided the care she deserved was hard. Being in another state made it so difficult to manage. Every step in the process revealed new hurdles and new financial burdens the he willingly endured on his own. His determination to fight for her has honestly been beautiful.

As the ball finally started rolling in the right direction, he was able to obtain Power of Attorney and begin the tedious work on sorting out her medical needs, obtaining her legal property, researching her missing money, and demanding the proper care for her. he was driving 6 hours to sign papers and sort out all over her affairs.

Last month he was able to put a deposit down on an apartment within his apartment complex and finalize plans to move her here so he would be able to be more hands on in her care. However, the light at the tunnel was not close enough. Completely unexpected, she passed away this morning. As Brent is in route to her, I cannot stop thinking about the battles ahead of him. Without getting into the details of  his personal life, I would like to ask  you to consider helping him out financially. He will be funding her funeral, tying up her loose ends, and most certainly seeking out a lawyer.

Unfortunately, he will not be able to simply grieve as he will be carrying a huge load on his shoulders taking care of responsibilities that he should not have too. Anything will help. He would never ask for a thing, but I know he would be so grateful to not have to add money to the already stressful situation.

Thank you.
