My brother devoted his entire life to the art and to the family he found within the brotherhood of Aikido. He dedicate his life to perfecting and understanding the art of Aikido. He had a pure love for teaching and traveled extensively throughout the world conducting seminars. I know that my brother touched many of your lives and you can attest to the fact that he was a man of excellence with a quiet strength.
I can't express the heaviness in our hearts on behalf of myself, his young son Nathaniel and family. We want to thank all of you who embraced him, loved him and became his extended family.
As we navigate through his sudden death and making preparations for Donovan's funeral service, any donations and contributions of love are appreciated. Your contribution will help to defer these unexpected expenses. Due to the conditions that we are facing and the sudden passing, we would appreciate any contributions asap. As his sister, I will be making all of the arrangements. If you need to contact me, you can reach me via email.
Thank you for your overwhelming response. Any additional funds will enable us to do something special for his son Nathaniel.
