Expenses for Beale Family

The Beale family has been rocked by an unthinkable tragedy. Wayne Beale passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Sunday, July 13, 2014 leaving behind his wife Joni and their six children.

Joni is a beloved member of the Fredericksburg community. She is a dedicated homeschooling mother and an active member of Spotswood Baptist Church and Mothers of Preschoolers. When you meet Joni, the first thing that you notice is her amazing smile and enthusiam for life. It is hard to believe that this beautiful, well put together woman is the mother of three sets of twins!

Tragically, she is now left to raise those six precious children on her own. Because of a pre-existing medical condition, Wayne was not able to obtain a life insurance policy for his family. Joni is facing an uncertain future as the sole provider for her family.

Her most immediate needs include the funeral expenses which total approximately $6,000, the initial goal for this gofundme campaign. We would love to raise over and above that in order to provide Joni a financial cushion to rely on while she makes plans for this unexpected chapter of her life.

Many people have asked how they can help. Many have offered to bring a meal to the family, and while meals are great and welcome, there is a much greater financial need. Please prayerfully donate as you can.
