Widower Vietnam Veteran Loses Son

Albert Rossi is a permanently disabled Veteran who was injured while serving in the Vietnam War. About ten years ago, Albert's wife passed away. With the help of his daughter, Allie, Albert has raised three children and two grandchildren as a widower. 
On the morning of March 29th, 2018, Albert's son, AJ, was killed in a car accident by a drunk driver. AJ and his friends were enjoying their spring break at Huntington Beach. 

AJ was set to graduate from Centennial High School in Las Vegas, NV, in June of this year. AJ was always the center of attention and his smile lit up every single room that he walked into. In fact, AJ just won the "Best Smile" superlative for his senior class. After high school, AJ had plans to attend college at College of Southern Nevada this fall. AJ had a whole life ahead of him that a drunk driver abruptly ended.

Albert and his family are both devastated and asking for the help of the community to cover the funeral, memorial, and other expenses.

100% of all donations will go to the family of AJ Rossi. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
