Dana Carew-unexpected passing of son, Bryan (19)


Monday , June 15th,  just 1 day after his 19th birthday, son of Dana Carew; Bryan Murphy, passed away from an unexpected death out of state. Bryan was a beautiful soul with a HUGE heart and amazing smile. He brought joy to everyone he ever met. Bryan loved to fish and was always joking around and always made sure everyone was ok and happy. Dana and her son had a Very strong bond and talked for hours on end on the phone daily while he was visiting his father. Dana fought everyday for her son to make sure he was OK and had a happy life. Her and her family are heart broken over this loss and the financial  hardship that an unexpected passing can bring. Dana’s only wish is to fly to Florida and bring her baby boy back home to California, which unfortunately happened at a very bad time. Thank you so much for your prayers during this time. We know Dana is loved by many and is very humbled and appreciative of any one who is compelled to help at this extremely horrific time! No mother should ever go through this. I, unfortunately, won’t be with my sister for long so I set her as the organizer.

Thank you for your help❤️

Nicole Snyder, 
Dana’s sister
Bryan’s aunt
