As most of you know, our family had to endure the cancer diagnosis and loss of our mother, Carol. Her funeral and burial were held just yesterday, August 18th. Immediately after burial, during my mother's Mercy Meal, my sister Christine (Honthy) Frenzel, along with her husband and daughters, tragically learned of the loss of her oldest son, Joshua. Her husband was then also taken by ambulance with diabetic complications and is in the ICU. The pain this family is feeling is incomprehensible and the loss we have endured this year has negatively impacted our family in so many ways. The recent diagnosis and funeral of our mother, has made it financially impossible to plan and fund another family members burial. We are asking for the help of family, friends, and others to assist in the financial burden of the days ahead. Our family thanks each and every one of you for your thoughts, prayers, and assistance in this very difficult time.
