This weekend the Pfarr and English family lost a Husband, brother, father and son. The rest of us lost an amazing Friend. John Pfarr lost his life early Saturday morning in a tragic motorcycle accident. There's nothing we can say to ease the pain for his wife Tanya and their three children. In the midst of some of the most heartwrenching times we'd like to pull to gether and try and help the Pfarr and English familes in the only way we know how.
While there are no condolances or words that can ease their pain, hopefully helping with some of the financial aspects will help to lessen the burden they have to carry.
Please help us to raise the funds to lessen the burden a little. (We wil try to post funeral arangements as they are settled)
I worked with John on the project in Castle Rock and in the short time that I knew him, I learned what a genuine and considerate person he was. I am so glad I got to know him. I pray God's peace for those family and friends he has left behind. Mark Mueller
