 FAIR OAKS, CA
My Nephew Ricky Wasco passed away last night at 11:10 everyone's hearts are broke and trying to understand why him of all people. Ricky just turned 27 had a Wife and 3 young children the youngest turning 1 today. A Marine, husband, father, Son he really was the man to be proud of. He has been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia, everything took a turn for the worse. While in remission for a short time his leukemia came back and this time in his central nervous system. He was immediately hospitalized and given chemotherapy, and while in the hospital recovering, developed liver and kidney damage. We are of course want to give him a proper service which he deserves and are wanting him to be honored at Mount Vernon in Fair Oaks where he grew up and lived. Still working on the VA to see what assistance we can get from them. Iv included a link so you can view to get a bigger picture of what's going on. His wife Teresa is a stay at home mom with a 7 , 3 and as of today a 1 year old.
Our family is extremely grateful and Thankful for any help.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you,
Leanna Havens
