Caring for Kelly & Kids

"The hardest part of life is that we have to keep on living even when our world has stopped spinning, and all the stars are laying at our feet." - Zoe Clark-Coates

On Tuesday morning my sister Kelly and her children had their entire world turned upside down and their hearts shattered.

A lot of people have reached out to me asking what they can do... I haven't quite known what to say because there is nothing we can do to bring Richie back to them and I know that is the only thing they want.

Some people might think that Kelly has never really had a lot in life. But, everyone knows that she has never complained, never once had her hand out. The truth is Kelly had everything she ever wanted, and that was Richie and their kids. Their family. Kelly is an authentic person and has always known that what she had was the only thing that mattered.

Kelly needs us now more than ever. Although no amount of money in the world will take away her pain, it can take away some financial stresses and allow her to concentrate on loving and supporting her children in this extremely difficult time. As she faces a new life, doing it all alone, let's let her know that we are with her.
