7 Month Old Lost Her Father

31618264_1532727178768087_r.jpegGilbert, a 38 year old father, husband, brother, son, and friend died suddenly on July 24th 2018 after going into a diabetic coma and having a heart attack. Not only has his wife had to deal with the sudden death of her husband but she was also laid off from her job the same day he went into the hospital. His wife is now having to figure out how to raise their 7 month old daughter without a father and a job. The money that is raised through this page will go first to help with any expenses having to do with raising his daughter, second to any funeral expenses, and third to any uncovered medical bills. We the family never expected this situation and always thought he would be around to help raise his daughter but the Lord had another plan. For any family, friends, or those that we do not know  that have come to this page to help, you have no idea how grateful we all are for your support. This support will bring the family some peace in knowing Gilbert's wife will be able to take care of their daughter until she can find a new job, that the stress of funeral costs will not have to linger in their minds while they try to mourn their loss, and to not worry about the thought of unexpected medical bills showing up in the mail. His wife(my sister) has no idea I have created this page because I would like to present her and the family with the money that was raised as a surprise and I understand some of you would like to remain anonymous but If you don't mind I would love to include a card with the names(first name would be great) of everyone who contributed so my sister can see how much she, her daughter, the family, and Gilbert are loved by so many. Any amount no matter how big or small will be truly life changing. Thank You!!!
(The picture is a picture of the card that will include all of your names. At the top I wrote "this is a gift from family, friends, and some you don't even know. There names are written on this card as proof you will never walk alone.")
