In memory of Ethan and Owen

There was a tragedy on Sat November 5, 2016. Two innocent little boys lost their life at their father's hands. These were 2 very happy boys with an amazing mother, an amazing older brother and sister.

Amber alert went out for 5 year old Ethan and 4 year old Owen Cadenbach. A mothers worse nightmare. Chris Cadenbach was a dangerous man. He was charged on Saturday with $100k cash only bond for domestic assault. He told his mother, "he wouldn't be taken alive." He kidnapped the children from his mother forcefully.

They were located at Cliff Cave Park in South County where he shot and killled these 2 beautiful innocent little boys and then turned the gun on himself. during a police shoot out.

A mother who was trying to protect her children, will now have 2 funerals for these babies. These babies also have 2 older siblings as well and 2 older step brothers. This family is struggling emotionally and will be finacially for these unexpected deaths.

All proceeds will go to the family to help the family with funeral costs of the two children and the time that will be needed to take off work to grieve the loss of 2 of her babies and comfort the other children who just also lost their baby brothers.
