Help support Bailey.. Jeff Marfice


21334886_1498588303.835_funddescription.Jeff Marfice was tragically taken from this world way too soon. He leaves behind a legacy of his contagious smile in his only daughter Bailey KayLynn who turned 6 the day he died.  Not only will Father's Day always be sad for her but now her birthday too.    She called him "Daddy Jeff."  Unfortunately there have been inaccurate reports, along with a GoFundMe account, established for his girlfriend of 6 months and her child "Baby Sloan."  Jeff loved many things and many people but he loved nothing more than his own precious daughter,  Bailey.  Jeff spared no expense where Bailey was concerned recently buying stuff to do "science experiments" with her.   They only got to do one and while waiting at the hospital, Bailey responded by saying "Daddy Jeff just bought all the stuff for science experiments" as though that purchase should forbid him from leaving her lest the projects be left undone. She made him a Father's Day card while in the waiting room of the intensive care unit waiting for news that somehow he was going to be alright. When asked what she wanted it to say.. She said, "Happy Fathers Day. I love you" and she drew a picture of one little girl--herself. Jeff always kept a room in his house for Bailey.  His laughter and constant smile will be seen brightly through his daughter's eyes.  Sadly,  she is already showing signs of grieving : crying herself to sleep the day of the funeral saying,  "It's been a long day.  I hope tomorrow is shorter. "  When doing one of her favorite activities of pony riding,  she broke down sobbing afraid she might fall. When reassuring her of her riding experience and the fact she had a helmet on,  she could only respond that "Daddy Jeff wasn't wearing a helmet. "  With Jeff gone, Bailey will not have him here to support her, take her on the long-awaited trip to Build-a-Bear, or to have her Daddy Jeff join her in achieving all her milestones.  Bailey will miss out on Daddy Jeff one day walking her down the aisle. The photo above was of his attending her Kindergarten graduation... The very last graduation he will ever get to attend. This is the only graduation Bailey will get to have Daddy Jeff come to. Bailey still needs support... there are the ongoing  daily expenses, high school and  hopefully college one day.  Her mother,  Lauren,  has already been working on getting her in both Occupational Therapy as well as Counseling but is having trouble finding a provider "in-network" through their insurance policy adding to the already expensive costs of raising a small child.   Your generosity will make sure Jeff's daughter doesn't have to go without any else... The loss of her Daddy Jeff is excruciating enough for this precious little girl.  Thank you for sharing Bailey's story... It really is what Jeff would have wanted.
