Help Tricia With Cost Due To Pete's Sudden Passing


Pete battled depression, health problems, and drug addiction .  He shared a love/ friendship with his mother like no other.  For months he slowly watched his mother and cared for her and didn't leave her side till she finally passed in December 2018. Since then,  he could never recover and gave up his battle and could fight no more.  His final message to his sister at 11:11 was that he needed to talk to his mother and couldn't take it anymore.  He passed away in his home where they both grew up and had nothing but fond memories on Saturday May 25, 2019.. 
Tricia had always been a caregiver and support system first and foremost for her family.  Her whole life she watched over her grandmother,  mother,  and brother.  She made a promise to her mother before she passed that she would always take care of Pete for the rest of their lives and she kept that promise.  And now it is our time to help take care of her so that she can fulfill her promise.  Tricia has never asked anyone for anything.  She has done numerous fundraisers for our community to help others in their thing of need.  She always gives of herself whenever anyone needs help.  She is such a giving person.   It was during her time with the band Silver that she played many benefits,  near and far. She also has donated as much as she could to so many others during their time of need.  Whether it was food,  clothing, or shelter. Any time she would see a gofund me cause,  she never once hesitated to give.  She just knew a family was hurting and needed to help. So,  let's please help her out during the worst time of her life.  It's one less thing for her to worry about.  Let's show her the same love and compassion she has shown for many years to others.  
I have never seen a brother and sister love each other so much.  She describes him as a "Simple Man" and she is truly lost without him.
