Hello and thank you for looking at our fundraising page.
All who are asking how i can help my dad, the late Jonathan Shurberg, and our family here is a report. Long term funding is something we are working on. However, our immediate needs are more pressing. Having the money to bury Jon next to Rebecca and the accompanying expenses of a funeral are front and center. I don't have a final figure on immediate needs but until probate and his house settles we have a cash flow problem. Let me say that yesterday through the kindness of so many of you we raised around $2,000. Thank you. I love you as much I loved Jon. But there are still needs. I hope to lay out a more detailed request and budget so all will know what we need. But for now realize that while we surpassed the initial goal that was from March that money is not enough. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Jonathan Shurberg, March 27, 1963 to July 20, 2017. Jon left us early this morning. He was a father, husband, lawyer, community activist, change agent, blogger, snarkster-in-chief and loyal friend. He left us to return to the side of his beloved Rebecca Lord. He was surrounded by love both at his bed and in your heart. Jonathan leaves behind his children, Eli and Ethan. While Jon has left the battles for us to complete, we accomplished much in our time together. The celebration of his life via his funeral is pending.
