In honor of my Aunt Lee

Thank you everyone! From the bottom of our hearts.
With the amount of money we have raised in the last few days, ALL of the costs from the funeral home will be covered in full. While a public wake and funeral will not take place, these costs were able to cover a private cremation as well as private services. At this time, we are discussing shutting down this Go fund me page. Any donations made from this point on will go towards debt that was left behind.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

As some have heard, on Brian and my wedding day (August 12, 2017), tragedy stuck my family. My loving, caring, compassionate aunt suddenly collapsed while taking our gifts to a secure location.  She went into cardiac arrest. With the help of the staff, an incredible stranger who happened to be staying at the hotel, and myself, we preformed CPR and contacted 9-1-1.  The EMT’s arrived, worked hard to save her, and I thank all of the amazing people there that day that helped, but sadly no one was able to and she passed that night before the reception was over.

My Aunt was someone who was like another mother to me. She took care of me as if I was her own, and my heart is completely broken for my Uncle Bob who has lost his best friend, sidekick and companion. I am thankful that she was able to be with all of us that day, and that she looked so happy and beautiful as she shared this time with Brian and I. Those who knew her and loved her will dearly miss her.

While Brian and I have are still working through things as well. It is my Uncle Bob who needs our help right now. We decided to donate what money we got as gifts from the wedding. While this has helped, there is still debt that has been left behind for my Uncle Bob who may lose his house. Anything you could do to help us in this time of need to help my Uncle Bob get through this difficult time is greatly appreciated.

While my uncle had started this page in a time of need, I have chosen to take over it to help lessen the stress and pain that he is going through right now.

Thank You.
