Colletta Thornsberry is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Jace Melugin.
Carl Melugin is a 47 year old man with a wife and 2 sons. Carl is currently in the hospital on an air ventilator. The air ventilator is keeping him breathing after brain surgery incurred by a brain bleed that left him with a ZERO chance of survivability. The Melugin Family needs our help something fierce. Carl will eventually be taken off the air ventilator and will pass on. In the meantime, without medical coverage and life insurance, the costs of the medical bills goes up and the exorbitant funeral expenses loom. Carl and his family are well known for discovering someone, ANYONE, who is in need and then they follow through by doing all they can to give assistance to that needy family or individual. They will just go to the grocery store, and as they fill their own basket with groceries, another basket gets filled, paid for, and delivered to the intended recipients. All anyone ever had to do was express a need for help and Carl's wheels would turn and he would figure out a way to help. Even being in very poor physical shape himself, he shoveled snow, mowed a lawn, cleaned up a mess, or did something else to make sure he gave of himself.This family has been caring, loving, and giving to anyone they ever met. And now it's their time of need, and their time to receive, as much if not more than they have given. Carl brought so much joy to this world and was always thinking of others before himself. He had amazing wit and could easily fit in and converse with just about anyone. And Carl has a deep appreciation for God and always put himself in others shoes to understand any plight or misfortune. He loved with all of his heart, was a fantastic joker who could make the saddest person smile, and he was a peacemaker, always trying to lift others up and helping them to see that being caring and considerate always wins. Carl taught his sons life lessons true to his nature. He taught them to love fishing and hunting and working on cars and taking care of and helping others. He was an adoring husband who treated his wife like gold and treasured the very thought of her. Carl is one man that many would say was definitely right with God. He worked hard to support his family and wouldn't ever want them to experience any burdens of any kind, especially financial burdens. So we need to do all we can to help this family. Please find the goodness in your heart and donate. The funds are greatly needed, will go strictly to Carl's medical and funeral expenses and to ease the stress and worry of his family.Codie, Jace, and Riley are losing a wonderful husband and father and he was their source of strength and guidance. That can never be replaced. Please don't let them hurt further by not having the funds to cover the expenses that have and will be incurred by this tragedy.WE ALL LOVE YOU CARL. THIS WORLD IS A MUCH SADDER PLACE WITHOUT YOU!!
