Julia & Hayley's Education Fund

On Sunday, October 7, Michael "Mike" Boat of Phoenix, Ariz. passed away unexpectedly in his sleep at the age of 48. The single father leaves behind his two greatest joys, daughters Julia, 20, and Hayley, 17. Mike loved his girls more than anything in the world, and he worked hard to make sure they always had everything they needed. As Mike's family and friends, this is our chance to help make sure Julia and Hayley have the funds they need to continue and further their education just as he would've done. In lieu of flowers or anything of monetary value, we kindly ask that you donate to Julia and Hayley's education fund, so we can help Mike take care of his girls.
