CO shooting victim/ bring dad home

My name is Tina Myers.  My ex-husband and the father of my 2 oldest children , Shawn (13) and Donavin (11) was one of the victims whom was recently murdered in the Colorado shootings on Halloween. We are extremely devastated by this news as you can imagine. Andrew was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. After we had our first child, he joined the US Army and we were sent to Germany, where we lived for 9 years. During that time we had our 2nd son and he served 3 combat tours in Iraq. At the end of our extended tour in Germany, we parted ways.  The children and I moved back to Ohio and Andrew moved to Colorado to his next duty station. After nearly 10 years in the military and with many awards and decorations, Andrew separated from the military and remained in Colorado. I, as his next of kin, and his children want nothing more than to be able to bring Andrew home and give him the proper services, burial, and respect that he deserves. As you can imagine this is going to cost a great deal of money.  The detective and the victims advocate at the Colorado police department have been very kind and are being very helpful. Tomorrow they are putting me in touch with a victims group that can hopefully help with a portion of the cost to fly him home. .  I will also be contacting our local VFW to see what they have to offer since he was a veteran. I am planning on going to Spear-Mulqueeny funeral home in Painesville tomorrow to see what I need to do to start getting him back home and laid to rest. Any amount of donations will help and be appreciated more than words can describe. Thank You in advance and God Bless. Please keep Andrew, our boys, and the 2 other victims in your prayers.  Thank You!
