An urgent message from Khadijah Alderman Funeral Janazah Help: Ulvi Galabeylyi passed away on Sunday, 12/1/2013.
Ulvi Galabeylyi was in a nursing home with no family and no funds. He was left at the hospital around a year ago and I believe he only spoke Russian. His remains were picked up by the Hancock Funeral Home who were considering cremating him.
