“Hi my name is Jennifer. My little brother Joshua N. Allen passed away on June 1st, 2021. He was only 20 years old. He was terribly sick for several months originally diagnosed with double pneumonia. Overtime it was discovered he had also fell victim to a very deadly disease known as HLH or Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis.
He passed away at Roswell Cancer Institute after so many weeks of fighting and showing promise. This rocked the very core of our family.
As the youngest, Joshua did not have any life insurance. Due to the extenuating costs of his home going services and the incoming medical bills it has been hard to cover all of it by our family alone.
For the sake of my mother, my older brother, and the rest of our grieving family we are willing to accept any help that is offered.
Joshua was always the life of the party and his energy could light up a room. I think it’s best to give him a home going that reflected how he truly lived: big and bold.”
