On Wednesday 05-17-17 Dave entered the hospital after having trouble breathing and was told he had Pneumonia. After running several tests, it was discovered that Dave had suffered two heart attacks, the first happening as long as four months ago. On Tuesday 05-23-17 my grandfather passed away with my grandmother Margaret by his side.
My grandmother has lost her husband, her closest friend, and companion for the last 40 years. My mom and uncle have lost their step-father, and my brother has lost the only father figure he has ever known. Dave and my grandmother Marg took us into their home and raised us like we were their own. They made so many sacrifices for us over the years and never once did they ask for anything in return. I remember Dave helping me with my homework and school projects, driving me and my friends God knows where no matter what time it was, anytime we had a problem they were always there to bail us out. I really don't know where we would be without them. He was such a big part of all of our lives and we will never forget him.
To make matters worse we have just discovered that my grandparents life insurance policy was only for $6000 dollars which does not even cover my grandfathers funeral expenses. We have also been told that there is no insurance on the mortgage of my grandparents home as they were "too old" when they had to renew their mortgage and were uninsurable.
I have created this page in hopes that we can take some of the stress off my grandmother during this incredibly hard time and to help pay for my grandfathers funeral and all the other expenses that my nan is left with on her own. Any donations will be given directly to my grandmother for her to be able to pay all of the bills.
If any of our friends and family could help us during this time we would be forever grateful.
Thank you so much!
