For our precious little boy blue.

Friday September 25th was like any normal day for our family. the wife was at work, the kids tearing up the house. just another day or so we thought. When my wife came home she was overflowing with joy and couldn't wait to tell me the good new she got while at work. We had finished eating supper and was just about to sit down with the girls to watch our Friday night family movie. when all the sudden my wife burst thro the house screaming and in tears over the phone. before i could react she was outside and gone. i got the girls ready and took them outside to chase her down. as she was clearly in no state to drive. this phone call will be one that forever haunts our family. my nephew who has lived with us off and on for the majority of the last 8years had called my wife. he was devastated and hysterical over the phone. it was at this time we had learned that his dad had committed suicide and this strong little man was the one to find him. I will never forget the words my wife repeated to me that day. just as he can never un see what happened.  over the phone he had said to my wife i want to kill myself and be with my dad. our family is devastated by this incident my kids are very attached to there uncle. when i picked them up the next day and got them adjusted into the van. i had to explain to them what happened because mommy and there cousin are not in any shape to play 50 questions with them. my words that day still ring thro my head. "girly girls in a few days we are going to go say good bye to unky one last time. unky went to be with grandpa mike" and my 5year old without missing a beat replied "unky is in heaven!?" and started crying her poor eyes out. it was at this moment i finally broke down. knowing that my child understood what i told her. i don't  know how things will turn out. I have always accepted that my wife and i will always have a place for my nephew to stay. I wish i could say that i can give him the world just like i want to do with my own girls. but i know that i cannot do this alone. his dad always wanted him to be better than him. just like any parent would want there kids to be better, live happier, healthier than they ever did. i am setting this account up in attempt to raise enough funds to pay for anything Malakai needs with the majority of it for college if he so chooses that path in life. we have already felt overwhelming support from family friends reaching out to check on us. it will be a long road ahead. My brother in law will be greatly missed im still waiting for him to sit up and laugh with that cheeky laugh he had when he was teasing you. reach out to your friends and family and check on them. make sure that they are really OK. Malakai's whole world was his dad. if anybody would like to reach out to him in show of support we ask that you please wait a bit longer. he is lost and is not able to currently handle seeing people. we ask that you reach out to my wife Sarah until little boy blue is ready.

Thank you for any and all help it will be greatly appreciated. 51504484_1601213161767318_r.jpeg51504484_1601213180632549_r.jpeg51504484_1601213205133578_r.jpeg51504484_1601213228500813_r.jpeg51504484_1601213243592755_r.jpeg51504484_1601213264283901_r.jpeg51504484_1601213278848616_r.jpeg51504484_1601213311369562_r.jpeg51504484_1601213743459646_r.jpeg51504484_1601213757943983_r.jpeg51504484_1601213777363737_r.jpeg
