Memorial Expenses

As I sit here writing this, I am in complete shock and disbelief that our Robert is no longer with us. As many of you know, Rob went through tremendous difficulty after losing his mother, Karen, and brothers, Tim and Cody. He battled demons for a long time and fought so hard to be a constant in our daughter's life. Mia Grace was the love and light of his life.  Robert was thoughtful, genuine, kind, loyal, and willing to do anything for anyone at a moment's notice. Our families are devastated and our sweet baby girl's life will be forever changed. It pains me to ask for your help on Christmas of all days but we are not financially equipped to give Rob the memorial he deserves and the proper goodbye his daughter needs. We are eternally grateful for any support you can provide. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we try to navigate this horrific loss.
