Help bring Erik Home!

It is with great sadness that I am creating this site. My step-sister, Valerie Iorio, received news that no parent should receive. Her youngest son, Erik Nowak, passed away. Erik was 21 years old. Unfortunately, he resides in the sunshine state (Florida) and his mother and brother, Edward Nowak, are here in Connecticut. Erik did not have life insurance.

As we all know, the expenses associated with funerals/wakes etc... can be costly. Not only do we need to plan for his finally resting place, but we would like to get Erik home to his Mother.

If you can please share this site and remember ANY contribution will help.

We truly appreciate all of your help.

Thank you,
