It's been two months since my dad passed, and it still feels like yesterday. We're reliving the nightmare over and over, since justice has yet to be served. My mom is still burdened with medical bills (about 75,000 still owed), lawyer fees, and now she is being denied my fathers life insurance because of a mistake made by the company. One of the criminals is free, one is luckily back in jail (for now), but still we wait and wait. We just want this all behind us, but it haunts us everyday with these men "free". We thank everyone for all their support, it has helped a lot. And it has meant a lot to our family.
Just want to say thank you to my coworkers at work for all chipping in and collecting for the fund. I did not expect it at all and I can't even tell you how much it means to me and my family. And thank you to everyone else who has done the same. I have some really wonderful friends! And I know my father is smiling down at all the wonderful people who have cared so much throughout these last 3+ months. You all are amazing!
Can't believe it's been two weeks. Still does not feel real. Keep waiting for his voice to come out of nowhere, or to see him out shoveling the snow. And unfortunately we have not been able to make arrangements for him yet because of the ongoing investigation. But my mother is left with growing costs. We are still trying to get approval for an autopsy, so far it has been denied by the state once. If we are left to order it ourselves that comes out of our pockets, and then the cremation, and still mountains of medical bills on top of that. This has been along road for us all, and we just want him at peace. If anyone can contribute just a little here and there it could help my mother out a lot during this difficult time. I know it's the holiday season but a little goes a long way or at the very least share this around please. I hope and pray that we can get justice for him, because this is not the way he should have gone. Miss you everyday Papa!
I wish this was a good update but unfortunately it is not. My father was rushed back to the hospital this morning in cardiac arrest. They had to do CPR on him three separate times. They are not sure what caused this to happen all tests so far have not come back with a cause. He was absolutely fine this morning and in a split second it all changed. We are sitting with him right now in ICU. He is on a ventilator assisting him to breath. He is still breathing a little on his own. We are not sure if he is going to come back from this. None of us are ready to let him go, but if it is his time, we hope that he can go peacefully. He has been through a lot in his life, and through the last three months recovering from the accident. I hope for a miracle that he can recover from this too. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, as this is going to be a very difficult time for us all. We love you Papa!
Just want to post an update. My dad will be coming home this Friday, which will be officially 3 months since the accident, 3 months since he's been home. It's been a long road, he's had to learn how to do a lot of things all over again, like walk, and even do simple math equations. His memory is so much better than the first few months, his walking is better, although he still has a lot of issues with his balance. His bad knee is definitely worse and he will need a new brace for it. He had just got a new brace right before the accident but because of his injuries, he will need something more supportive now to help him walk better. We are sill working on a few things at the house just to make it safer for him to get around, but he is definitely happy that he is getting out of "that place" Three months is a long time to be away from your home and family. Thank you everyone again for your support, every little bit helps. My parents will still have medical costs and equipment that will not be paid by ins. And also legal fees. Hopefully we will get the court date soon, so we can get some justice sooner rather than later.
Just want take a moment to honor my father for his heroism. October 23rd was the anniversary of the start of the Hungarian revolution, in which my father risked his life during along with hundreds of thousands of other Hungarians, but eventually escaped and made his way to the U.S. He is an amazing man with amazing courage. He fought for his life then and he is doing the same now. He's made very good progress in rehab but he's still got a ways to go. Thank you all who have contributed. It amazes me how wonderful some people can be, please keep sharing this for my father. I can tell you that he appreciates each and every person who has helped. When he found out of all the wonderful people that have contributed in support of his recovery he got tears in his eyes. So you know that he is very thankful and so are we. All I'm asking if you cannot contribute , is to please take a few moments and make a few clicks and share this. And thank you again to all who already have!
The Ted Takacs Fund On August 22nd 2013, Nashua man and longtime motorcycle enthusiast Ted Takacs was involved in a hit and run accident which left Ted with numerous, severe injuries. Though a Native of Hungary where Ted fought against the Russian Occupation as a Freedom Fighter, he is every bit a New Hampshire man. The 2 men responsible for the accident Benjamin Tucker 23 and Michael Fawcett 47 have been arrested and charged with numerous crimes. While the case makes its way through the court system and as Ted slowly works his way back to health, the Takacs family is facing mounting medical bills. The Takacs family is turning to Gofundme.com for help.
