Coleman Family Funeral Expenses

The Coleman family needs help paying for funeral expenses related to a death abroad. Mr. Coleman tragically passed away in the Bahamas coming home from church.

Our vacation in the Bahamas took a turn for the worse early Saturday morning (4/14). Our nanny Rennett and her husband Darryl were staying with us to look after our baby while we attended a wedding. Darryl was driving home from a church service when the driver of his car had a seizure on the bridge to Paradise Island. The car went off a cliff and fell 10 feet onto concrete, instantly bursting into flames. The driver was killed immediately, and Darryl tragically passed away at Princess Margaret Hospital in Nassau.

Darryl was a pastor and loved immensely by his community. This is freak accident in a foreign country and we are trying to navigate the system for getting his body home to the states, as well as arranging accomodations for the family who is here.

We are seeking any donations for this wonderful family who will miss their father, grandfather, husband, uncle, friend, and beloved pastor tremendously. Any donation, no matter how big or small, is greatly appreciated. The funds will be used to get his body back to the United States, which can cost up to $3,000 (we will know more specifics on Monday morning once we meet with the US Consulate). Additional funds will be used for expenses related to staying in the Bahamas longer than planned (hotels, food, taxis, etc.), and the funeral.

Please donate what you can. We truly appreciate it.
