No parent ever wants to bury one of their children, but one of Lowell's very one has to do that very difficult task and soon. Justin Kralek #57 of the Lowell High School football team, has passed away today. This strapping young man was getting his life together as his mother, Beth Kralek told me tonight in a tearful phone call. I had called her to ask, what do you need and what do you want me to do. I knew the financial burden was very difficult. I listened to her struggling to decide whether to hold a viewing or to just cremate him. I told her, let me set up this Facebook go fund me page, so that her family and friends can rally around her and her daughter Michelle, and her other son, Mike and his family during this most difficult time.
Why am I helping with this campaign? Beth and I have been friends for sixteen years. I watched her live without a husband who died when Justin was little in an auto accident. I watched her bury her father, brother, and most recently her mother. This is a strong woman who knows God and that even though God needed all these family members, she thought Justin was going to outlive her as most parents would expect. Please help make a funeral possible, and help one of Lowell's very own know how much you care at this most difficult time,
