Support the Pishkin Family

On 10/28/14 at 9:28pm God gained another angel. My brother, our brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend Scooby. My family has dealt with many tragedies. One to many actually but this one was the worse. I ask myself what did he do, why now or why him. I'll never know but I do know my brother left a unique impact on everyone's life that had the blessing of knowing him. He was always so happy and peaceful. Being around him was a joy no matter what mood you were in Scooby would change that. He loved music, cheese doodles, hugs and kisses or when u just talk to him. I know he always heard us. Smiling from ear to ear. My brother was and always will be "One of a Kind" with his beautiful eyes, one blue one green he was just so unique in every way...

Unfortunately God had other plans and we are so very grateful to have had 32 beautiful and amazing years with him. I will forever cherish every moment, every laugh, every hug. It's heart breaking and I need everyone to please help support my family during this tragic time. My brother didn't deserve to have his life ended this way and so soon. Everything was perfect just 2 weeks ago. He was his happy playful self. Yesterday 10/28/14 changed everything. That phone call will forever play over and over again in my head. My mother is so heartbroken. Doctors told us his large intestine had died due to other complications and that he would not survive. That moment was a blur as we all cried in disbelief and didn't understand how something so severe could go unnoticed for so long. Though there is much anger there is much hurt and several questions. He was born on 5/16/1982 at just so little and fragile weighing 1 pound 6 ounces he was a fighter from that very day. Born with cerebral palsy, blind, unable to walk or talk he fought for many years in and out hospitals but always my mother and family were there hand and hand we knew Scooby could overcome it. He was a warrior!

I'm asking for everyone's help, if you have ever lost a loved one suddenly such as we have then you understand the financial hardship placed on a family during an already difficult time. My family and I are asking for donations to help give my brother Scooby the proper send off he deserves. We love you, appreciate all of you and we thank you for the amazing love we have been given through this difficult time. We know my brother was LOVED so very much and his memory will live with us forever...

Loves Always

The Pishkin Family ❤️
