Bobby White Memorial Fund

$8,090 of $10k goal

Raised by 94 people in 37 months
On Monday, August 26, 2013, our friend and loving husband and father, Robert White, was suddenly and unexpectedly taken from this world. He was a kind and thoughtful person and will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He leaves behind a devoted wife, two great boys, and a daughter who need our love and support now more than ever. In these difficult economic times we are ALL experiencing, his family was not prepared for such an untimely and catastrophic event in their lives. With Bobby earning the majority of the family's income and no insurances in place, they are in desperate need of our immediate help to cover funeral costs and to help lighten the coming burdens they will be experiencing in the very near future. Please use this site to help this broken family in their time of need. No donation is too small and all proceeds will go directly to the family. Thank you for your support.

Thank you to all who attended, helped set up, helped break down, cooked, served food, or just plain came to show your support or to share a memory at Bobby's celebration of life. Most have had their closure and are returning to their normal lives, but for Laura and her family, the road ahead will be long and difficult as they try to return a life far from normal. Bobby earned more than half of the family income and had no life insurance, so the financial hardships are still very real. For this reason, we will be leaving this page up and running in hopes that we at least reach our goal. Laura and her children's suffrage will not be dissipating any time soon and neither should our support. Please continue to give, and please share this link with your friends and family so that they may give a little support, too, should they still want to lend a hand.

Today was a difficult day for us all. Today we got together with friends and family and remembered Bobbby. There were laughs and tears, and as I sit, now, and watch people watch the slideshow or listen to Bobby's music, I see the smiling faces and hear the stories, I know that we celebrated him like wanted. Rest in peace, my friend, we love you.

Yesterday, Bobby's remains arrived home to his family. It was a very emotional and surreal day for Laura, Ricky, Lukas, Ari, and the rest of the family. It was a day that made it all seem so real after walking around in a daze of shock and disbelief. Tomorrow will be Bobby's celebration of life, and soon after, his remains will be laid to rest in one of his favorite places under one of his favorite trees. Although a sense of closure is coming for our friends in mourning, there is still a long road ahead of picking up the broken pieces of their lives, putting them back together, and finding the strength to press on with life without Bobby. Your love and support has been monumental during this past week and a half, and it pleases me to see the sense of relief that every donation presents when Laura seems lost and looking for answers to the questions of how to move on and what to do now. Every dollar counts, so please continue to put the word out to family and friends and bring help to this struggling family so that they may find this difficult road a little less rocky.

Today, per his wishes, Bobby's body will be cremated. Thank you to everyone who had donated to his fund, as it has made the financial side of that burden far less heavy for our grieving friends. We are just over a week and already (almost) halfway to our goal. Your support has been amazing getting us this far, this quickly, and I know I speak on Laura's behalf when I say that "Thank You" doesn't even begin to express the gratitude that she and her family are feeling for your continuing love and support. Please continue spreading the word, sending your well wishes, prayers, meals and donations, and most importantly, your love, especially on this difficult day.

Although I didn't know Robert or his family, I do know the Reinhold's & as friends of Bobby & Laura I have watched them try to accept & cope these past several heartbreaking days! I can't even begin to imagine what the White family is going through, my heart goes out to Laura & their sons and daughter! May God bless your family!
