Unexpected death of Brian Brunscher

Today my wife and I learned that a dear family friend of almost 20yrs has passed away. Brian Brunscher, who was just 36 years young, died in a trucking accident. He was a very kind and giving man who would always lend a hand where needed.  Like when he did all he could to help out my family while I was deployed, as he would've for all his friends and family. It's now my turn to do all I can to help his family, when he can't. He leaves behind a wife, Rachell Brunscher and their three amazing children, Hayley 14, Alexzander 8, and Lucas 3. Brian and Rachell were high school sweethearts, meeting when Rachell was a sophomore and brian was a senior and have been together ever since. He was her rock, her whole world. This has been quite a bad year for her having just lost her father earlier this year and now the love of her life, and although she is a strong willed and resilient woman, she's a stay at home Mom (a great one I might add) who never thought she would be forced to deal with this situation at such a young age and is now faced with the financial burdens (i.e. funeral costs, bills, food, etc.) one must bear when facing such an unexpected tragedy. Anything you can do to help ease her through these unimaginable circumstances would be beyond appreciated!
