In Memory of Johnie Fortescue

Johnie was loved by many, his family is in need and thankful for any donation to help with this unexpected loss to go towards funeral arrangements.

Copied from Johnie Fortescue's Facebook page:

From Michelle Cunningham (daughter): I don't know how Facebook works and unfortunately here's my first social media attempt:
(during the worst time in my life....)

I miss my parents (Maria & John Fortescue)...
I would do anything to SEE, HUG, KISS, say I LOVE YOU!, as they were taken so unexpectedly from my life.

I cry in pain as if part of myself physically and emotionally has died with each of them. Something is missing...and it's my mom and dad!!!!

I wonder how the world continues to function when my world is crumbling....???...what is the purpose???....meaning....???....I have no answers for myself, even worse no answers for my children...

Please everyone who reads this, don't reply, just appreciate your parents who made you, and let them know it!!! Even if you disagree with their lifestyle choices, they still are your mother and father, thank them for your creation.

If you would like to help, donations are deeply appreciated (and very much needed) but not expected.

Preferred donation link is below via Venmo App since 100% goes to funeral costs or is available too (see Melissa N Peter Martinez page for direct link)
(FYI: Go Fund Me website will keep a percentage of donation)
