On February 20, 2018, the Kuwabara family suffered the sudden, tragic loss of their beloved family member, Lincoln. At just 26 years old, he was killed in a skiing accident while visiting his older brothers, David and Jesse in Pennsylvania. While the Kuwabara family is heartbroken because of this devastating tragedy, the love and support shown by family, friends, their church and community coupled with their faith will be what helps them through.
We are lifting this family up in prayer and also want to support them by helping to lift the financial burden. When a loss like this occurs, it's felt by everyone. So many ask "in addition to prayers, what more can I do?" Prayers are powerful and necessary at this time and please also consider a financial contribution to the Kuwabara family to assist with the unexpected expenses of funeral services to honor Lincoln's life.
Morning Call article about the tragedy
Lincoln was described by his older sister Amy: "Let me tell you... he was a special baby. My parents took a good week to 10 days to name him and when they finally decided on Lincoln James it seemed to my 10 year old ears to be a very tall name for his long skinny newborn body, he totally filled his name with grace and kindness!!!
He was the best brother, who was unusually in tune with those around him, he was overly thoughtful, kind and his flare was seemingly understated.. or overshadowed by his flashier, and charismatic 2 older brothers....He was silently strong in character, silently generous, silently happy and content in the moment.. I say silently, but there was nothing silent about the way he lived his life.
He traveled to us for each of my 5 kids birth, he quietly didn't mind when Omar used to call him Uncle Jess even though he was the Uncle that was there playing with him all the time. Humble, kind... and such a fun silly side to him.
We as a whole family desperately miss him, our hearts are shattered and can't imagine our family time without him.. and grieve for his years not lived and experienced.
Lincoln, I love you so much. I can't believe that 2 weeks ago yesterday, I was hugging you and hurting with you over the loss of our Uncle... in my wildest dreams I would never have thought my kids will be losing their beloved Uncle.
When we sat down to talk, your face lit up when you told me about your plan to travel to visit Jesse this week... That innocent huge smile that you flash will be missed so much."
