On Monday, October 16th, I called my old friend, BARRY GRIEFER, who has terminal brain cancer, to say hello, lift his spirits and pray with him. Even though its tough to ask, I always say, “How are you feeling? Any updates from the doctor?”
Today, Barry’s response was grim and filled with sadness…”Brian, the tumors are growing so fast, I’m now officially blind and the doctors told me I have less than 5 months to live.”
“Is there anything I can do Barry?”, I replied. He normally just asks me to pray with him or replies, “You already are just for calling me. How’s your family?” but today was different, today Barry confessed to me, “I am trying to plan my own funeral and do not have the money.”
It broke my heart and I replied, “Can I help you raise the funds, how much do you need?” Barry replied, “I’m very blessed, a local funeral home agreed to the minimal costs for my end of life requests, casket and above ground grave site for just $5,000”. I replied, “I will help you raise those funds within the Grappling and Jiu Jitsu community and Christian brothers and sisters community, is that ok with you Barry?” “Yes my son, thank you, ” Barry humbly replied.
That’s what got us here today.
Barry Griefer is now 72 years old and just received his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu a few weeks ago, taking his test completely blind, sparring multiple opponents and performed the self defense portion of the test too. He is a spiritual warrior, child of God who never gave up, but now his time is near to leave this earth and he would just like to not be a burden on his family.
When people die, everyone spends $50-100 on flowers or donates to a charity, they honor the dead more than the living. Please help me honor a living legend, the most inspirational grappler on the planet, simply because, Barry Griefer never gave up.
Psalm 116:15 says, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the DEATH of His saints”. Barry knows Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior and dedicated his life to serve Him alone many years ago. Please consider donating to a warrior, on and off the mats, who will one day soon meet His Lord in heaven.
Please donate any amount you can, YouCaring takes 0% and 100% of the funds donated will be given to Barry and or the funeral home he has selected. We realize sometimes financial times are challenged, but every SHARE on social media helps raise $37 towards the goal.
God Bless YOU for reading, sharing, donating and CARING enough to read all the way through. We might cry when Barry leaves this earth, but we must remember, God will rejoice…please help us help him leave this earth with dignity, knowing he didn’t burden anyone, let’s help him “lie down in green pastures” and peacefully leave this earth.
NOTE: 100% of donations will help pay for the $5,000 final rites and funeral services for our brother, Barry. (YouCaring takes 0%) – We know sometimes financial strife exists in like, please know every SHARE on social media raises $37 from your friends and family members for someone you care about.
