Help for our poor Kylee

This young family was happy. They didn't have much but they had the wealth of kings in their love for each other until one misty night in May, tragedy struck.

I watched as soon to be six, Kylee tucked her Daddy in for his eternal rest. A driver had failed to yield at a stop sign. When no further brain activity was detectable the decision was made to donate organs and remove life support.

Bear was dedicated to providing for his family and always ready to help anyone. There were lines of people waiting to get in to pay their respects. Civil groups, Veteran Social Groups, The Tribe of All Nations were all in attendance to pay respects to a man who never spoke an unkind word, a soft-spoken example to all of us.

I watched as Pam, a widow at barely 30 took on the roles of father and mother. It was a long hard struggle, and as the ten year anniversary of her Daddy's death approaches the unthinkable has happened.

                    Kylee now has to bury her mother.

Pam was enjoying a well deserved evening with friends. Kylee was enjoying a visit out of state when she got the call to come home immediately, Mom is in the hospital. I can't even imagine flying home alone at 15 not knowing what it all meant.

Pam had a massive heart attack and was on full life support and a cruel rerun. No brain activity. Organ Donation paperwork and termination of life support.

Kylee has had to bury both her parents. At 15. AT 15. 
She needs help. Legal fees, funeral expenses, house payments. Monies to live on, so that she can continue her education and keep the home she shared with her mother, that the down payment came from her Daddy's death.

All donations will be used to settle Pam's estate and provide for Kylee, in Trust.

Please give what you can. No child should have to deal with so much tragedy double-fold in debt and unable to pay for legal counsel and funeral costs.
