Days before Brandon and his wife, Nicole, were about to open their restaurant - their lifelong dream - he tragically passed away in his sleep at age 40. As Nicole deals with losing her husband, father of her children, and business partner, she also has to figure out how she will support her young children and plan for their future.

So many people - from all over the world - have asked how they can help. Many of us are far away physically, but we can make the transition easier by helping her with burial/memorial expenses, educational bills, and the cost of raising two children on her own. This fundraiser is an opportunity to honor Brandon's memory and to help defray any upcoming costs that Nicole and the kids will encounter both in the immediate and distant future.

Brandon's love for life and adventure were contagious, and almost everyone can hear his laugh when they think of him. Nicole loved him with all her heart, and she has a lot to figure out in the midst of incredible grief.

This campaign was organized by her closest friends from her hometown who are among the many who love her and the kids and are searching for a way to help. All donations will be presented to Nicole and the kids along with thoughts and support. Please feel free to share this campaign and thanks for the outpouring of love and interest in doing something for Nic.
