My brother Dean Shalhoup lost the love of his life, Terri (Twedell) Shalhoup on February 28, 2014 due to complications from a massive stroke she suffered on February 10. I have set up this fund to help him get to a place where he doesn't have to worry about the costs of the funeral as well as the expenses he incurred while Terri was being treated up at Dartmouth Hitchcock in Lebanon. Although Terri's health was not 100% the past few years these complications were totally unexpected and very emotional for Dean.
Dean is the most humble person I know and when I broached this subject with him his initial reaction was "No, I can take care of things" which is so typical of him. After receiving at least a dozen emails/phone calls from friends and family asking how they could help Dean directly I went back to him and told him that he really needed to revisit his decision. Because I can be quite persuasive he agreed to let me set up this fund to help him out.
Thank you in advance for your generosity to help one of the most giving people I know. Don't worry for a minute if you don't wish to donate to this fund, and also believe that even a $5.00 donation will be very much appreciated.
With love and gratitude,
Karen Dapkus and Family
