Kellys Son

So many people helped with our first GoFundMe campaign to help Gunnar and Arden. Thank you!!!! With the COVID-19 situation, the restaurant that Young Gunnar works for has closed down. As we just celebrated Kelly's birthday, and the anniversary of her death is approaching, we thought we would ask if you would like to help Gunnar, it would be greatly appreciated!
Much Love,
Amy (Saxton) & Caroline (Yost)

The first GoFundMe:
As you probably know, Kelly Shuff Tahtinen Wiley was tragically killed by a car on May 5 while on a bike ride.
 
Anyone who knew her was familiar with her bright sunny smile, deep spirituality and contagious laugh. One of the most important things you learned early on was how much she loved her “babies,” Gunnar (23) and Arden (21). What you may not know is that the kids also lost their father (Gunnar Sr.) just as suddenly to a massive heart attack just last year. Since then, Kelly had been working her tail off to provide as much as she could for her “babies,” including student loans, college and living expenses. In less than a year, these kids have not only lost both parents, but 100% of the financial support they provided.
 
We, Kelly’s friends, who love and miss her so much, know that her primary focus was helping her kids as they venture out on their own. In order to carry on that loving assistance, we started this GoFundMe campaign to share in the load that Kelly so graciously carried. Any gift you can provide, one-time or ongoing will be a huge blessing and a great remembrance of Kelly who exemplified giving to others so beautifully.
 
Thank you so much!
