Art for a Cause

This request for sponsorship is in hopes of relieving some of the stress of memorial cost and hospital bills for David Warren Emden, father to Grace Calandra Emden, David 'Paul' Emden and Kristin Leigh Emden.

David went to the hospital unexpectedly on January 6, 2015 and stayed in ICU until he passed peacefully, on February 10th, 2015, due to complications from pneumonia. He was surrounded by his children and loved ones.

David was an extremely generous man. He had a big heart and gave all he could, even when he had nothing to give. David lived by very humble means and leaves behind only memories of his love and wonderful sense of humor.

David's wish is to be cremated and have a small gathering of loved ones to celebrate his life. Any help is greatly appreciated and a portion of these proceeds will be donated in his name to Cancer Services which has assisted him and his loved ones in the past.

Memorial will be scheduled in the upcoming weeks. Information and obituary will be posted soon.
