Destry's Memorial Fund

On January 23rd, our beloved Destry Don was taken from us all too soon at the young age of 20 years old - 11 days from his 21st birthday. Destry was battling drug-abuse but was days away from joining our cousin Terri in Portland, OR who had generously offered her home and expertise in drug rehabilitation to help him begin a new healthy life. Destry was excited about this new journey...he was hopeful. We all were hopeful. Until the fated day when a convicted felon of which Destry made the fatal decision of associating with, robbed him of his life and his chance of a new beginning. 

The funeral expenses and costs associated with getting Destry's remains back to Redondo Beach, California where he was born and raised, are overwhelming; that combine with funeral expenses are making this heart-wrenching tragedy all the more painful. Steve and I are hoping that by raising some money for his memorial expenses that we can help his grieving parents with the cost and give Destry the celebration of life that he so rightfully deserves. Any contribution, no matter how small, is warmly appreciated.
