Henry and Ilona's wishes answered!

Hello, my name is Thalia Yates.  I am starting a campaign for my mother.  We have tragically lost my father Henry Hiebert, to a heart attack at 73.  He was a very handsome, wonderful, loving, caring, strong, hard working man, who would help you anyway that he could. 

Henry was blessed with a phenominal wife, four daughter's, eight grandchildren, and six siblings.

Being a true cowboy, life has included awesome adventures like fishing, hunting and other outdoor activities.  It  has also dealt  him many challenges.  One, being diagnosed with diabetes at a young age.  He battled different things, but tackled them all like a five star general.  It didn't matter how tough the job was.  

Henry and my mother (Ilona Hiebert) lived in Arvada, Colorado until 2003.  They then decided to move the family, horse's and all to Deer trail, Colorado.  

Deer trial is approximately 75 miles one way east of Denver.  Half of the roadtrip is mostly, unmaintained rough dirt roads.  The drive is a tiring, maintenance nightmare for everyday travel.

There house is on beautiful horse property, but the house needs extreme work done.  My campaign is for my mom,  Ilona.  Since this horrible incident my mother has acquired 100% of the monthly bills.  Not only that, but she has inherited all of the chores for the Farm, and the house.  

My campaign is called Henry and Ilona's dreams and wishes answered!

Their plans were to get the property updated to the level of the selling market, get the animals to a safe place, and downsize to move. 

The funds will be used to help my mom with her house payment, food, gas, vehicle repairs x2, Daily feed for 3 horses, Daily feed for 6 chickens, Bathroom remodel x2, a new roof, windows, siding, paint, gutters, deck repairs, water purifying system installation ( system on hand), Trash/junk removal, and other farm needs.

All of our family is here to support my mom, and doing the best we all can with the loss of Henry.

Unfortunately, neither Henry or Ilona were prepared, financially for this tragedy.  I do not want the property to eat my mother alive.  It is an on going fight to survive out there on the farm.

If she could get the support she needs to move closer to family and help, I would be so grateful.  So would all of us who knew Henry, and know Ilona and there dedication to each others goals.  They were getting there little by little, and all of  sudden, time has stopped.  The work and bills did not.

I would greatly appreciate any help that anyone could give!  God bless!  We are all going to miss you Henry Hiebert, you were one of a kind!
