Briel Family Funeral Fund

$104,724 of $90,000 goal

Raised by 1,468 people in 14 months
Created March 25, 2018
Late in the evening of March 24th, Dan and his boys Caleb, and David were cleaning the inside of a silo on their family farm.  This was not unusual as Caleb and David love working on the farm with their Dad and never shy away from a tough job.  While inside, the unthinkable happened.  The silage collapsed in on them burying them.
By the grace of God, Caleb, age 15,  was about to get out and call for help.  Tragically, by the time rescuers made it to the rural farm and accessed Dan, he had already passed.  David, who had just turned 14 years old six days prior, still had a weak pulse and was rushed to the hospital.  Sadly, his injuries were too great and David passed before the ambulance could reach the life flight team. 
Compounding this tragedy, Dan's wife and David's mom, Melissa, was in Washington visiting her oldest son, Ben at the time.  
Please consider donating to help the Briel family with funeral expenses and other costs as they cope with this heartbreaking loss. A private donor is covering GoFundMe's processing fee so 100% of your donation (up to $25,000) will go directly to Melissa.
If you are unable to help financially, please keep Melissa, Caleb, Ben, Abigail, Erika, and the entire family in your prayers.  They are a family whose love for God shows in everything they do and they will need all of His strength and love during this time.

The story from Fox9 out of the Twin Cities.
Melissa wanted everyone to who heard their story to know that God is with them and will see them through.

“God is good even through hard times,” she said. “I want people to take away that God is there and if you keep your faith in him he’s going to see you through.”
