Barbara Spegal Expense Fund

Billy Spegal   BURLINGTON, KY
UPDATED - PLEASE RE-READ

Barbara Spegal was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and auntie.  If you knew Barb, you knew that she never met a stranger.  She quickly saw the value in each person that entered her life.  She encouraged, and coddled when needed, and offered wisdom where she could.  Though often not having enough herself, she would give to family and friends in need as often as she could.

Sadly, Barb suffered an unexpected cardiac event, going on two weeks ago.  Sunday 3/30 the family decided to remove her from life support and Barb passed away.  She will be greatly missed but we will rejoice in that she has traded her earthly citizenship for a home in heaven with family members gone before her. 

This, however, was not expected, so the family was caught by surprise.  The family had neither health insurance nor life insurance.  The medical costs and the funeral and burial expenses are expected to be a heavy burden on those wishing only to spend the final moments that they can with such a beautiful person.  

Please do whatever you can.  If you aren't able to donate, we understand.  Feel free to pass this link on to others that may be able to.  If you were planning to arrange for flowers for the funeral, please consider donating instead.  Prayers are also appreciated in this difficult time for the Spegal and Key families.

You all have been awesome. Of nearly $9000 in expenses we only need to make up about $2500 more. If you can't make it to Gold Star tonight, please consider giving here. Thanks so much for your prayers and support.

We nicknamed Barb the granny tamer as she seemed to be one of the few people that could actually deal with my mom on some of her more "demanding" days. My mom, Joan, and everyone in my family, Mark, Kyle, Kiera, and Courtney grew to love Barb over these last couple of years. We are so sorry for your loss and grieve with you. Although she is gone from us, she is with her heavenly father awaiting out arrival with open arms. We love you Barb!
