Emmy Lynn

Hi everyone. 

Recently, GoFundMe replaced the youCaring, the site in which I set up a college account for my niece Emmy. Emmy is my brother’s daughter who turned 7 in September. My brother, Brian, lost his battle with addiction nearly 3 years ago today.  The struggle of losing my brother; a son, a father and a friend to the terrible effects of opioid addiction continues, but his legacy lives on in his daughter and his family who miss him dearly. 

I am lucky enough to have Emmy in my life, a sweet girl who reminds me of Brian with her simple smile, although be it somewhat toothless right now :) 

I set up this account in hopes to help Emmy later in life, with her education.  So please, feel free to contribute whether it be the $5 you found in your pocket this morning or just an acknowledgement for those who have lost a loved one. 

My hope is to help Emmy in any way I can, as I’m certain my brother would have counted on me for. 

Thank you as always and love to you all -
