(Belated Kristine Antillon on July 08, 2008- Fish ON! A favorite family past time activity.)

Show support for our belated Kristine and John Antillon's family in their time of grief and need. We are asking for your love, support and donations to help one of our own as we  try to help meet Kristine's wishes.

On March 15, 2017 John Antillon and family tragically lost a loving wife, mother and grandmother, Kristine Antillon. Kristine was an RN who gave back to the community showing compassion and a loving light  while offering a helping hand to anyone in need. She was truly a blessing to everyone she met. Her kindness and radiant smile is what her family and loved ones will never forget!

Now that she's tragically passed her husband is having to face the unimaginable. Due to her tragic death, they may soon lose their home, John is fighting to keep the boys he raised as young children with him (as they wish),  and they have lost their health insurance.

To carry grieve with such a tragic loss, then to carry such a heavy burdensome load on one set of shoulders without time needed to mourn your loved one is stressful beyond comprehension. John is someone who feels ashamed to ask for help, let alone having to ask for help in such an open way on social media. Which is why, WE, his family, are taking every step possible to support this family in this difficult time but we still need your help!

Not only is John getting alarming news, bills and updates since his wife's death, he is struggling to figure out a means to an end. That's why we open-heartedly ask and make a plea for your help.

Saving the family home, keeping the kids with John (as they wish) and managing day-to-day expenses is a top priority.  Keeping Kristine's dreams for her children's further education is also a priority.

Your donations will help:
 Save them from losing their family home, make their day to day expenses more manageable  provide enough assistance should he need to attain a lawyer to keep the children in his household, as they wish and pay medical bills. With your donations and support they will be able to get health insurance, medical bills will be paid off and will help the kids attain and achieve their higher education, as Kristine wished.

John has three beautiful kids still living at home: Zane, Eli and Hans. And with your support we can help to keep them as comfortable in their own home, and in their routines, as normal as possible.

From John and Family:

I could never properly give voice and thank anyone enough for your donations and support but I'd like to take a moment to try...

Thank you! Thank you, all of you, for your kind words, thoughts, prayers, texts, calls, meals, cards, donations and the extreme generosity shown to us.

Since Kristine's passing it has been difficult, scary and overwhelming! As I start this journey, without my sweet Kristine, keeping stability for my boys has been a mighty battle. My kids and I have been reminded over and over again of the goodness  in people. We have been reminded of the power of prayer and in the power of Love. The outpouring of affection we have received has been breathtaking and WE want to say to each and eveyone of you from the bottom of our hearts... THANK YOU all so much! We love you ALL!

They say in this life, when you feel vulnerable and heartbroken, it only takes one person to come along and help pick you back up. That is exactly what you have done for us. I have been scared, grief-sticken, crushed and frankly utterly lost these past weeks. With your love, prayers, support and encouragement, I have gained so much strength. This has been the hardest situation our family has ever faced and YOU all have eased our burden and lifted us up in more ways than you can imagine.

Thank You and We Love You!

I promised my kids and I promise all of you that I am going to fight like hell, no matter what comes for my family.

Please continue to pray for us.

Love you All,
John Antillon and Family

May you rest in peace Kristine. I so enjoyed working with you. You were an amazing Nurse, and person. I really wish we knew the pain you were in, and could have helped you. You are safe with our Lord now. May he comfort your family. Until we meet again. ...
