Funeral Expenses for Drew Machi and Help Brandie

Donation protected
Good morning, there has been a horrible tragedy. I am Brandie’s older sister and I am reaching out. On Friday Brandie, Drew and the kids were on vacation at the ocean in Eureka. It was his birthday. Drew was fishing on the rocks and A wave grabbed him and threw him in the ocean. Brandie jumped in and tried to save him but he was about 15 feet out and the water was throwing her back into the rocks. She ran for help but he passed away.  She is beside herself. Poor baby..... and his birthday.... she was alone with the kids for hours before any family arrived and now she’s back but won’t go home without him. his body will be brought back on Tuesday. Coroner said he believes he hit his head on rocks and was knocked out. This whole tragedy has her a mess. She’s 36 years old. Drew was 39.  Anyway the fam is rushing to be there. I am attempting to ask all family and friends to come together with financial help to help Brandie and the kids. Funeral expenses, living expenses, etc  If you’d like to donate we would greatly appreciate the support.  Love you ❤️❤️❤️ Please forward this to as many of their friends as possible. “Funeral is private” but a Celebration of Life for Drew will take place on April 13th for all. Information to follow.
