Funeral Help - Lamont Congo's Wife

Lamont Congo is a lifelong bike mechanic.  He has dedicated his career and his life to his love of cycling.  He is an amazing man with a huge heart. 

Lamont met the woman of his dreams but he and Tina had to be long distance lovers for many years since she was Canadian and he was American.  Finally, in the Spring of 2016 Lamont and Tina moved to Plattsburgh NY to be together.   He worked as a bike mechanic at Maui North Ski, Bike & Board Co.

In the Summer of 2016 he suffered a diabilitating stroke that left him unable to work.  Tina was his savior and supporter, but she too was unable to work due to citizenship issues.   They lived on and depleated their savings.

On Sunday, October 1st, Tina passed away.  Lamont is left to pick up the pieces of his life.  He is still unable to work or drive.   He has no idea how he will afford a proper funeral, not to mention his life after the dust settles.  

I know the Maui North and biking communities will come together to support one of our own.  Every dollar is appreciated.  

I will collect the funds and give them to Lamont.  Since it's a funeral, the funds are needed pretty quickly. 

If you've had the opportunity to meet Lamont you know what an amazing man he is.  Regardless, hopefully you will help. 

Thanks in advance for your contribution!
