Daniel Franz Funeral and Memorial Fund

We have all had times in our lives when uncontrollable tragic events strike and we feel completely in shock and overwhelmed. For many of us, these times pass and we are able to get back to our regular daily lives, filled with healthy relationships, fun and laughter.

I would like to introduce you to the Franz Family: Danny, Erica, Alexis, Alex and Logan. Danny and Erica were high school sweethearts and the love of each other's lives. Their 18 year relationship gifted them with an unconditional love and 3 beautiful children. There are no words that can describe the heartache that this family is now going through. 

On Friday, April 18th, Daniel Franz tragically passed away in his sleep. Erica and her three children are now without a father and a loving devoted husband.

We all know that finances are one of life's major stresses. Unfortunately, Danny did not have life insurance. Erica will need to go back to work, as a matter of the highest priority, in an effort to 'make ends meet' without her husband. Between funeral costs, future school expenses, and loss of income, this family faces an overwhelming financial burden in the coming months and years to come.

Son, Brother, Husband, Father and friend- he will forever be missed by all! We are raising money to help defray some of the costs of his funeral expenses and memorial.

Money is such an easy thing to give. No amount is too small. Please help us support Erica and her children through this difficult time.

Share!! Spread the word! Anything helps! Every donation makes a difference.
