This past Sunday their son, Bruster Phoenix Sampson, was killed when his motorcycle was hit by a car.
I hope you were able to meet Bruster at least once in your life - if you were, I don't need to tell you anything about him because, I mean, no one forgets meeting Bru.
If you didn't get to meet Bruster and you somehow stumbled upon this page and you like to do sudden, unexpected good things, let me share something that another one of his friends said about him:
"He had a way about him that was unforgettable. He was a bright light everywhere he went. He made friends with everyone. Even those who only met him once were impacted in some way. So genuine, charming, likable, positive, smart, and HILARIOUS. He had a huge kind heart, loved animals, loved life, and was a family man. His smile was so contageous. He had the best sense of humor, and sometimes a snorty laugh that could make you pee yourself. He was Kramer when he entered a room. I am SO lucky to have known him. He definitely lived life to the fullest. He was the most fun and the life of the party. Bruster was selfless, caring, and one of the most non judgemental, and most understanding humans."
Let's be honest, you probably don't have anyone besides your mother who would say something THAT good about you.
Here's the thing though, everything you just read honestly doesn't begin to encompass how amazing Bruster was and what he meant to those of us that knew him well.
Bruster never had a lot of extra money lying around, mostly because he was such a generous guy and would always want to pay for your drinks or buy you dinner...unfortunately that means that he died without a life insurance policy and as I'm sure you know, there are some pretty major expenses that come with dying.
So here's where you come in:
If you'd please grab your credit card and contribute a few drinks worth to help out with expenses - even if all you can spare is $50 or so, that would be really great.
100% of funds will be used for his cremation and memorial and if there is any money left over, we're going to give it to his parents.
I appreciate you helping out in this time of need - in keeping things true to Bruster's spirit I'd also like to ask you to leave a joke or story about Bruster with your donation; I know he would have preferred you left one that was entirely inappropriate.
