Education fund for Grant & Sean

On August 25, 2018 a father and friend of mine was taken from his family suddenly and unexpectedly...Ron Murphy was fishing in a bass tournament at Badin Lake NC in the evening with his friend Scott C. They came upon a pontoon boat with no lights so it was not visible until they were almost upon it, Ron who was driving tried to avoid hitting it and swerved left causing him to be thrown from the boat hitting his head most likely on the pontoon and killing him instantly.
This accident has left a widow and 2 boys without their income provider and no insurance policy (Ron was self employed and in the process of obtaining insurance). Ron was a generous man and was helping with Veterans that wanted to experience fishing by taking them out on his boat at various lake events that provided Veterans the opportunity. Ron was an Army Veteran himself and wanted to give back to those who also served.
Grant Murphy pictured on right is their oldest son and Sean Murphy their 2nd son is pictured on the left.
I am asking for your assistance with any amount of gift you can provide to help this family with expenses and possibly provide a way for their boys to further their education. Any amount is greatly appreciated as well as prayers for this family in such a difficult time.
