On Thursday, November 16, 2017, my family and I celebrated my stepfathers 49th birthday. We were going to continue celebrating his birthday on Saturday November 18, 2017 with a formal family dinner at one of his favorite restaurants. However, those plans were never sought through because on Friday, November 17,2017, he suffered from a fatal accident at work. His 20+ years of work experience as a painter came to an uprupt end when he slipped and fell about 18ft from the roof of the mansion he was currently painting. His heart stopped for about 25 minutes, leaving his brain with no oxygen/blood flow. When the paramedics arrived to the scenery they were able to resuscitate him. Unfortunately all the irreversible brain damage had been done. The doctors have diagnosed that his brain no longer has an type of function and is moments away from being declared brain dead. My family and I are currently planning for his memorial. We are beyond grateful for all the support everyone has provided and we thank you in advance for any support you continue to provide.
