On December the 30th, my brother-in-law, Chad Clark, was killed in a motorcycle accident, leaving behind a stay at home wife and four young children. Chad was the only source of income for the family, as he felt strongly about a parent being in the household for the children. The youngest child, Michael Chase, is only 6 months old and will never know his father. My second youngest nephew, Quinton Lee, is only two and does not understand why his Daddy hasn't come home. My sister and the two older children are devastated. I am Lisa Clark's big brother and am desperately fighting for their stability in this very sad time. They had no life insurance policy, no savings, and the accident claimed their only mode of transportation. I am trying to assure that they can have a stable home and not want for any of the necessities. They did not have a lot of money to begin with, and now following the Christmas holidays rent and utilities are stacked up. Lisa has no ability or paycheck coming to help pay them.
My sister needs time to grieve and get on her feet. What we are trying to raise money for is rent, utilities, childcare and transportation costs so she can return to work and provide for her family herself. All the money that is raised is going to be placed into a conservatorship account that was just set up, which is controlled by an independent bookkeeper with an MBA, who has graciously agreed to donate her time to help my sister stretch every dollar and account for where each dollar goes. The goal amount is based on current rent, current utility amounts, childcare, transportation costs and minimal misc. expenses for the next couple of months.
I cannot take away their pain, but it is my greatest wish as a big brother and uncle to help take away some of the stress and help provide some stability for the children who were left fatherless.
Sincerely, Robert McCrary
