Help Nathan's family say goodbye

Nathan Waddell left this world suddenly and unexpectedly on June 17th, 2017, leaving behind a beautiful wife, an adopted daughter, and foster children. Nathan was only 36 years old.


He was a United States Army Veteran who served his country selflessly and proud. He was born and raised in my hometown of Danville, Virginia, but he was residing in Arizona with his wife and children at the time of his passing. Due to the unexpected and sudden nature of his passing, his family here in Virginia was in no way prepared for any of this, and at nearly $600.00 per plane ticket, not to mention a car rental and lodging, they just don't have the funds to attend his memorial service next week. I know we can't send everyone to Arizona. But I hope and pray that with your help, we can get his Mother and Sister there so they can say Goodbye to Nathan properly.

Thank you so much, for anything you can do. God Bless and have a wonderful day.
