Sweeney Children Fund

My sister-in-law, Brooke (Czaplicki) Sweeney, was a devoted wife and mother. Her and my brother, Lee, had the kind of love that people dream of.

The kind of mother she was inspired me. I always felt so grateful that my nieces and nephew had her as a mother. Her fun, goofy personality was magnified as a mother. Her love for her children was so evident in all she did.

I’ve been asked by so many people about monetary donations for the family which lead me to set up this Go Fund Me page. The donations will be to support Lee and Brooke’s children (expenses, etc). Words cannot express the love and support my brother and his children have received during this difficult time and we are deeply grateful.
