Asking for Help
PBF assists families with acute financial needs accompanying a heartbreaking and devastating sudden loss of a daughter, son, granddaughter or grandson. Families are already understandably overwhelmed by the enormity of the tragic loss of a child. That loss and sorrow are only compounded when families lack the financial means to pay for their child’s funeral, burial, and other associated costs. To ensure Fallon’s loving and caring spirit lives on, James Painter’s mission is to offer financial and emotional support, along with understanding and compassion, to bereaved parents and families struggling to rebuild their lives after the death of a child.
If you or a family you know requires assistance, please call our office or complete the form below and we'll reach out as quickly as possible.

A Letter The Pink Butterfly Received from a Recent Recipient of Assistance
My name is Michaela Dubuisson. I have 2 children, an 8-year-old boy, Jayden, and a 2-year-old little girl, Alani. I was also expecting a little girl, Alayah, on January 18th to join our family. On August 11th, I unexpectedly gave birth to my baby girl. I was not expecting to go through this at all.
This pregnancy was a little rough and different for me; the whole time I was on orders by my doctor to be on bed rest. The day I had my baby girl early, it was very upsetting, and I couldn’t imagine a family having to go through what I did.
I wanted my baby to be laid at rest at Pine Rest Funeral Home so she can be beside her grandparents that passed away 8 months ago. They would love her beside them as they loved their grandchildren dearly.
Due to this being so unexpected for me and my family, I reached out for help as I’m out of work and to share my story with any other family that experiences this.
Thank you so much for telling your story and for helping me during this time.
