A Hero's Family

My name is Debbie and I'm starting this Gofundme for my friend Kim, with the heaviest of hearts. At approximately 9:30 am on January 17, 2015, the life of a father, husband, and ultimately, a hero was brutally cut short. The loss of Leonardo Coppola has shocked us all. He will always be remembered as a family man, a hardworking business owner and a committed member to his community. He had a beautiful soul - it came to no surprise that he died saving someone else's life. He will always be a HERO in our eyes.

Please donate whatever you can and help us raise money for the two remaining members of this beautiful family, my dearest friend Kimberly Coppola, and her 8-year old son. 100% of the funds raised (less the fees GoFundMe charges) will be donated to a special account for the continued care and upbringing of Leonardo's 8-year-old son, as well as any additional expenses they will incur during this time of tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our dearest and loved friend, Kimberly, her son and the entire Coppola family.
Rest in Peace and Grace, Leo.
