I am setting up this GoFundMe page for Ray and Sharon Bowman as they desperately need your help. As most of you know, this precious couple unexpectedly lost their youngest son Landon in 2009. When you lose a child, your world stops and nothing is the same anymore. Life doesn't have 'color' in it anymore. It's hard to just wake up in the morning and face another day and want to go on without them. It takes everything you have in you to go on living.... yet, through it all, they showed us that with God, you can survive such a horrific tragedy.
BUT NOW... they were faced with the shocking news that their beloved oldest son, Tyler, was tragically and unexpectedly gone.
I honestly don't know how Ray and Sharon will have the strength to get through this. Its hard enough to lose one child, but to lose your second son is unfathomable.
Ray is holding down two jobs just to make ends meet. They have gone without air conditioning (in 100 degree Texas heat!) in their home for three years because there hasn't been extra funds to pay to have it fixed. They have plumbing repairs that need to taken care of, but have chosen to put food on their table instead of make repairs. We don't know these things because Sharon doesn't complain. But NOW, they have no idea how they are going to pay for the funeral expenses for Tyler!
I am making this page for them because it is the least I could do to help. For those of you who know this Godly, special, loving couple, you can only imagine how devastating this is to lose both of their sons.
PLEASE, please donate any amount you can so that Tyler's funeral expenses will be covered...I put in the amount of $8000 as the goal but I honestly have no idea how much the total cost will be for them. I would love to be able to alleviate some of the financial burdens that this dear couple is burdened with.
THANK YOU for ANY amount you can give! If you are not able to contribute financially, please wrap them up in your daily prayers...they need them so very much!
