Shafer Family Expenses
Friends and Family - As most of you know Patrick Shafer was tragically taken from this earth early this morning, leaving behind a loving wife and two wonderful sons and much extended family and friends. We are starting this fundraising to help with expenses during this sad time as well as help with the family's future.
I'm sobbing as I write this but I want to let friends know. This morning at 2:15 Patrick Shafer passed away after a car accident. We are in shock. He is my best friend, my love, my whole heart and we were happier than we could ever be. He was The most amazing father to his sons- their lives revolved around him. The boys and I are struggling to cope with the news and any and all thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.
I will update as I can
Parking will be spread across several local lots (more info to come). Childcare will be available at the church. Space in the church will likely be an issue so we ask that everyone be gracious in sharing the space (there will be an overflow room). The reception will be catered, with an open bar, music, and will be a time and place to celebrate this amazing man and share stories and the love he so openly gave.
What has made these past 2 days bearable is the outpouring of love and support from family and friends. Patrick touched so many lives and was loved by so many. It is painful but beautiful to read all the tributes on FB and see all the pictures. And the boys and I are surrounded here at home with the love and support of numerous people who are promising to help us through.
As the waves of grief keep crashing I just keep trying to feel Patrick's love.
Please continue to keep them in your prayers
