Funeral and Medical Expenses

Yesterday, January 5th, 2017 my nephew Allen passed away suddenly at home. He was 37 years old. He was an amazing husband to his wife Martha and has 3 surviving children. He and Martha have been together since 16 years of age, they married and had 3 children. His chidlren, Chris 18, Zachary, 11, and Lily 8. 
Allen and Martha worked effortlessly to provide for their children. While they both worked full-time they often sacrificed to provide for their children. 

In this time, we are asking for our friends and family to help with monetary donations in order to provide a service and memorial for Martha and her kids to say good-bye to Allen. 

It is unbeliveable that Allen is gone. We just buried his father 3 years ago.  Allen's father was a huge presence in this family's life. Now, Martha is left to raise Chris, Zach and Lilly on her own. 

Please continue to show your support in phone calls, texts, and emails. They will need us now, and in the future. 
It takes a village to raise a family, and we need to be that village for my newphew's family.
