Erv Van Heukelom Funeral/Fire Love Gifts

Erv Van Heukelom, son of Glen & Bertha; raised in Jamestown/Hudsonville, MI; lived in Wyoming, MI; & then Stanwood, MI has had 3 tragedies in 7 weeks.
His home burned down on 2.10.2014
His stepson Steve died of health issues on 3.6.2014 (He raised Steve since that lil blondie was 9 yrs old!)
And, now, on Friday night, March 28, 2014, Joan died of health issues, with Erv holding her.
We are now looking to social media to aid Erv with these issues:
1. Contact - him, me, our other family members, to let him know he's emotionally supported.
2. Prayers - 'nuf said.
3. Financially - but ONLY if you are in a position to help.

THIS WAS THE FIRST POST--> Erv & Joan Van Heukelom lost EVERYTHING
due to their home totally burning down on Feb 10, 2014 in Northern Michigan. It is believed to be a stove pipe issue.
Any size donation would be deeply appreciated.
Remember 5% of what you donate, will go to this website.
I'm Erv's little sister, Cindy, setting this up for them.
Rich (Erv's lil brother) & I have decided this is the best route to take at this time to obtain donations.
I will not be able to access this money.
Only Erv & Joan will be able to access it.
Below is a local news report of the fire. Please cut & paste to watch it.
