Steve Salazar Tragic Passing

On June 6th Tara Received a call that  would change her and 6 kids lives forever. Steve had been shot and  died. Steve was at his parents home in Walsenburg, CO helping his parents with yard work when his cousin drove by shooting him twice. The last shot is what took Steve from his wife, kids and family. Tara is now left to pick up the piece for her family. Steve was the finacial suport for this family, as Tara stayed home to raise the kids and take care of the home. Steve had 5 Children, Ariana 22, Brennan 19, Jessie 13, Zayhmen 13, Zarrian 7. If you knew Steve and Tara you know the had hearts of gold and always there to help if needed. A little over a year ago they brought a baby girl, Oliva, into their home as a newborn because her own parents were not able to raise her. Tara is now wondering how she will continue with out her husband and finacial burdens are definetly a concern.  She is now wondering how she will feed her children, keep lights on, keep a roof over their heads and give her husband a resting place. If you dont know Tara you should know she worked  many long hours as a waitress  but her health has taken a turn for the worse and is struggling with Lupas. This family has suffered enough and we are asking if you are able to give, please help.  Funeral arrangement are still pending but we will update as soon as we know.  Please pray for peace for Tara, the kids and the family. Thank you!
