More Info

At the young age of 29 John was a picture of good health.  He worked hard as a Department Head with the Home Depot while attending night school to get his accounting degree.  He spent every spare second with his wife Brittany and children Grace age 7, John age 4, Charlie age 2 and Mark age 1 (just turned 1 on 2/25/2014).

As a Christmas present John and Brittany received a cruise to Cozumel and were enjoying some well deserved time away.  While on the cruise John started to have a hard time breathing so he decided to go back to the room to lay down and rest.  The next morning he was still having a hard time breathing so reluctantly he agreed to go to the ships hospital.  While at the ships hospital John began convulsing and looked at Brittany as if to say "I'm sorry" and passed away.  

John was Brittany's everything.  He took care of all the household bill's and finances for the family.  He held Brittany's role of being a stay at home Mom in such high regard that he didn't want her to worry about anything and just stay focused on the kids.  

John was adored by many.  He left quite an impression on all the lives he touched.  His strong faith helped mold the family to what it is today.  

The only thing not taken care of was the unthinkable.  In order to make ends meet they had to cancel his life insurance policy at the end of 2013.  It was a very tough choice but at the age of 29 you think you can go for a year without it.  

I am asking you to please help as much as you can.  Every penny counts!  Brittany is extremely frugal and fiscally responsible but at this point in her life she needs some help from others.  Please help us help her to prolong the need to seek employment outside the house.  She is a great mother and loves being a stay at home mom.  Even though her life has been changed forever, your donation will help her pay the bills from this tragedy and allow her to stay focused on helping her children cope with the loss of their Daddy.
