Honoring Jason

Jason wasn't supposed to live. But he did. And he lived well because of the undying love of his father, Peter, who cared for him every day of his 33 years on this earth. Peter taught him that he could hug, he could love, he could communicate without using words, he could live a good life at home with his family. After Jason's mother passed, Peter found help but still kept Jason at home, close to him as he needed 24 hour care. Peter later remarried and found a beautiful partner in Cynda who grew to love Jason as her own. Her family also loved him very much. Jason had no bigger advocates in life. Jason went home with the angels early yesterday morning.  This is a devastating blow to the family.  He was in good health despite the care he needed. Nobody knew how Jason's body worked better than Peter and Cynda. It's a mystery why his body stopped working, but it is not a mystery that he was loved beyond belief.  The family could use some help for themselves now. Peter is retired but is just finishing up treatments for his own health issues. Cynda was Jason's caregiver  (as well as Peter's when he was sick) and now that income will no longer be available. They just spent their savings on a new washing machine because they wore the last one out washing so frequently. They need help with funeral expenses and some living expenses until they can grieve their family's loss and Cynda can find work again. These folks do anything in their power to help others. Now I am asking for help for them since I know they won't ask themselves (with permission,  of course). If you find it in your heart to donate, please know that it will be appreciated more than you could ever know. Thank you!
