On the morning of May 24, Caroline contacted me telling me she found her husband, Darren, unresponsive. The paramedics did what they could, but unfortunately Darren had passed. He left behind my best friend and their 4 beautiful little girls - Aubriana (3), Genevieve (2), and their twins Abigail and Gabryelle (8 months). They had been together for approximately 5 years and recently married this past March. Caroline lives at home with her parents, but there is only so much they can do for her family. Darren was their only source of income (working as a cook) due to Caroline needing to stay home with the children. Not only do they lack funds for a proper service, but she also just lacks funds in general. They had one vehicle between them, but it doesn't even fit all the children. She also had hopes of returning to a technical school in the near future, but this tragedy will further hinder those plans. She could use some financial relief to help with general expenses, to help buy a new vehicle to fit all her children safely, to help with the funeral, to help her return to school, or to help enroll the older girls in either preschool or MDO to provide Caroline with a little childcare. She just needs our help. I have known Caroline for 10 years and want to show her how much love and support she has. I can't be there for her physically, as she lives in Maryland and I in Memphis, but I know there has to be something I (we) can do.
Please know any penny donated toward this fund is appreciated by me and especially her during this time. Thank you.
