Hi I’m Barbara many of you may not know me, but I am a close friend of Becky’s and have known Becky and Danny and their family for some time now. Danny was a great man who served his country, and an even greater father, his children were a huge part of his world. On Thursday August 23rd, Danny passed away unexpectedly, leaving behind his two children Lucy (4) and Jake (2).
Danny and Becky have been separated and she and the kids have moved back in with her parents since last spring. Danny was the primary source of income which allowed Becky to be able to work part time from home to care for Lucy and Jake.
As if that weren’t enough, in addition to this tremendous loss, Becky’s father is entering into hospice as he enters the final stages of his battle to Lewey Body Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease, making this tragic time that much more harrowing for the family.
I am setting up this GoFundMe in hopes of coming together as a community and put some money aside for Lucy and Jakes college funds and their future.
Jake and Lucy are Becky’s world. I hope setting this up relieves some of her stress as she begins to prepare for their future and adjust to their new normal.
