Dad Taken Away Way Too Soon !!

Dear Friends and Family,As many of you have heard on March 15th our dear friend Maria Valenti/Binkerd lost her ex husband Mark Binkerd (the FATHER of her children, Skye 15 yrs old and Dylan 14 yrs old) to a heart attack. He passed in his sleep and was only 51 years old.Mark was an amazing father and supported his kids in every way he could including paying the mortgage on their house. He obviously never thought he'd die this young because unfortunately he had no Will, no life insurance and no beneficiaries named on his 401K (which will be tied up in probate for up to two years). I know a lot of you have expressed wanting to help Maria and the kids somehow. So we've started this Go Fund Me to help them in any way we can. ANY amount can and will help them as they navigate through this very difficult time and please share it with your social network if you can. Thank you so much!
