Picking Up the Pieces

"The person who completes suicide, dies once. Those left behind die a thousand deaths, trying to relive those terrible moments and understand… why?” – Clark

Trent (TJ) Spence had a heart full of love and goodness, but he was tormented inside his own head.  His decision to end his own suffering lead to the pain and suffering of all who knew him.

Trent's wife Erienne is now faced with the reality of raising their children (Brannan-13 and Ava-10) without Trent.  Not only is she working to heal her kids and herself emotionally, she is now left to provide financially for her family on her own (something that had been difficult at times for this family on two incomes). Cremation, end-of-life expenses and therapy are only the tip of the financial iceberg. Erienne and her children have experienced unimaginable trauma over the last year, and have more than just a few pieces to put back together in order to heal and grow from all they've been through. 

Erienne would never ask anyone for anything...she is a giver. (All those who know her, know this to be true!) Please give back to her in this time of extreme need!! (As the cliche goes, even $5 would help!)
