Yesterday, 8/31, Mindy and Rod lost their 5 month old sweet baby boy, Tristan. Mindy was pushing him in the stroller when they were struck by an SUV. Mindy is being treated for her injuries and is expected to remain in the hospital for several days but unfortunately Tristan did not make it and as anyone can imagine, they are completely shocked, heartbroken, and have a long road ahead of them. Please, if you can, donate anything you can to help them with medical expenses as well as funeral costs. No parent should EVER have to bury their child! Please keep Mindy, Rod, and Hayden in your prayers.

On behalf of the Schulz Family, they have asked me to relay this message:

To each of the kind souls who have donated, thank you. To every soul has said a prayer, or even continues to do so, thank you. Our lives have been destroyed. The hell we live daily is unfathomable even to us as we live it. Our hearts are forever broken in a way that time and space will never be able to heal.
But every prayer, every measure of support, every tear shed with us, every embrace....these things do help. Each of you has helped lighten the load of our grief in small ways that allow us that brief second to come up for air. We are drowning in sorrow and heartbreak, and your support has been our lifeline to keep living. The moments pass infinitesimally slow, but your love keeps us tethered to shore. Without you, without the love shown through you, without God's grace present in every measure of support, we would be lost.
Thank you can not adequately express the pure love and appreciation for each of you. We are humbled, and we are alive. So thank you beyond words for your love.

I was sitting in my car at the stoplight when Mindy walked directly in front of my car seconds before the motorist struck her. I was the first person by her side. I wish there was more that I could have done. My brother, who was a passenger in my car, called 911 immediately. I have been heartsick for the family since the incident.

May God heal all pain immediately. There is somehow, some way a bigger purpose for all of this. Only God knows. For 5 months Tristan if the best mother the greatest father and family. He will never ever leave you and sending infinite healing and love to his mommy and daddy. We are so so sorry, but please remain positive as God will continue to bless you in this life. Tristan would not want to see him mommy in heartache. Blobs to you all. Love from a stranger in your community.
