For the Family of Joe Crites

28920364_15230488840_r.jpegThis is Joe Crites and his beloved dog, Brooke.  Joe died trying to save her life on April 5th, 2018.  He loved her and did what anyone would do who loves their pet.  

Brooke jumped into the Olentangy River, got in trouble, and Joe jumped in to rescue her. Brooke made it out of the water and, tragically, her master and best friend didn't.  The family is beyond heartbroken and devastated by this unexpected loss.  

So many people have reached out asking what they can do to help.  This fund is an answer to that question, as there are considerable concerns regarding the costs for this family, including funeral arrangements.  

Please consider donating to this loving family that includes Joe's widow, who  retired in March of this year.

The family thanks you from the bottom of their hearts for your generous outpouring of love and support.
