Billy West Memorial Fund

Billy West and Shari Carle were life partners for 36 years until Saturday, August 4, 2018 when Billy drew his last breath.  After tending his crops and eating a good meal, he wasn't feeling well and decided to rest.   He suffered an aortic dissection and passed in the comfort of their home. 

As you can imagine, the shock and sadness for Shari and Maya. There's a lot of uncertainty in their lives right now.  Shari was in an auto accident in July 2014 that left her with brain damage causing her to be unable to work since May 2015.  Disability compensation will not suffice, especially in light of the expenses related to Billy's death.  This family needs our love, our support and our generous donations to make it through this challenging time in their life.  

Billy's big energy, his laugh, his enthusiasm and love for nature will always be remembered.  But for now, we also need to remember that he left behind a wife and daughter that desperately need our help today.

Won't you please help Shari to meet this goal?  It would truly mean the world right now.
