The David Nelson Memorial Fund

$21,400 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 184 people in 9 months
Created January 30, 2018
The outpouring of love and support to Karen and her family in the wake of their recent loss has been overwhelming... in a good way.  So many of you have asked how you can help.  I doubt Karen would ever ask, but am certain that on top of her grief she's worried about their financial future since David was their sole source of income and they have big expenses.  I'm sure you'll agree that money is the last thing she should have to worry about right now.  That's why the David Nelson Memorial Fund gofundme account was created.  I'm sure David too would want to know his family is going to be OK financially.

If any of you wishes to donate and has the ability to do so, I know Karen and her family will put it to great use and will be forever grateful for such loving and caring friends.  All funds will go to Karen to cover expenses.  Perhaps together we can get her enough to cover one mortgage payment and one quarter's tuition, or help her pay for health insurance for the family.  If you can't give, please don't feel bad.  Your love and support to them during this difficult time helps more than you might believe.

On behalf of all the Nelsons (and the Pirollo's for that matter), thank you so much for being there at this difficult time.

I just got an email from Karen saying she's having trouble logging into GoFundMe. She asked me to post this for her:

Thank you all so much for the support you have given us over these last two weeks. The girls and I consider ourselves beyond blessed to have so many generous and caring friends in our lives. With the support of our friends and by leaning on each other we will continue to cope as we find our way to our new “normal”.
❤️Karen

Thank you so much to those of you who have donated to the David Nelson Memorial Fund. Your kindness and generosity have blown us all away. Last I checked, in the 24 hours since the fund was created you've helped raise just over ten grand to help give Karen a little piece of mind financially. I can't tell you how much stress and worry this will relieve Karen of... at least in the short run. I had arbitrarily set the fund's "Goal" at $10K, not because that's all that I anticipate will be needed but because, frankly, I didn't see it climbing that high. I've just bumped that goal up a bit, but please keep in mind that even if a goal has been met, people may still donate. Karen is truly blessed to have such caring friends and family." Thank you so much!
