Help The Reinert Family

Hello Everyone. Last night, on August 28th, 2017, we lost a very dear family member. My aunt Michelle lost her dedicated husband and her two beautiful teenage daughters lost their loving father, Darren. Michelle and Darren were on their way home from work last night, carpooling as they enjoyed doing together, with Darren driving. Michelle and Darren were in mid conversation about how much they loved their children (even though they make them "nuts" - Aunt Michelle's words.... teenagers haha...) when Darren told Michelle that he was beginning to pass out. It was then that he did in fact begin to pass out and seize behind the wheel of their moving vehicle on the highway headed home. Michelle managed to get the vehicle to a stop and phone 911.  A stranger pulled over to help Michelle relocate Darren safley to the ground while they waited for the ambulance to arrive. By then, it seems it was too late and my aunt had lost her loving husband in her arms. 
Darren had suffered a major heart attack. 

My aunt is now emitted into the hospital as of last night; also due to chest pains and weakness. 

Darren and Michelle have two incredible teenage daughters, ages 16 and 17. 

Unfortunately, to add to everything, the family does not have any money set aside for such a catastrophic emergency. As it is difficult, now in today's world to prepare financially for such a devastating loss. Their home is in need of a list of repairs as are their vehicles. Things that Darren had planned to work on this summer and fall.

I have started this Go Fund Me page in deperate need of everyones help. I can not bare to watch this family, my family, fall apart. I refuse to let their whole world crumble. They lost their husband / father, their vehicle is unreliable, they need a new home, and the girls will be starting school in a week.

I am trying to raise money for them for the following things: 

Funeral Service for Mr. Darren Reinert
Estimated cost $8,000+/-

A new home for Michelle and the girls
Estimated cost $75,000+/-

Groceries for family
Estimated cost $250+/-

Vehicle Services
Estimated cost $1,000 +/-

School Supplies & Clothing
Estimated cost $250 +/-
(will also take school supply and clothing donations! Anything will help! The girls are ages 16 & 17.. unsure of sizes but can find out)

"No small kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." -Aesop

My family and I sincerly appreciate any kind of help in this sad time of need. 

God Bless, and thank you all so much in advance!

-Neice and Cousin,
Kimberly
