Life after Bear's death. 1-year later

It has been 1-year since the unexpected death of our son, Jared Joseph Griffith (Bear), who died unexpectedly due to an asthma attack in November, 2017. 

Life without our son has been terribly difficult to say the least, even paralyzing at times.   We continuously work daily to improve and learn to live with and manage our grief and sorrow.  However, one year later, the protective shock our minds and bodies were in has worn off. It has been much more difficult to  navigate than we ever imagined.

Although we continue to improve daily, and are now able to work more regularly, we find ourselves struggling to meet regular monthly financial obligations, and bring past due bills current at the same time. Our most concerning obligations include our home, Bear's home, where his precious memory manages to ease the pain of our broken hearts.

We hope to raise $2500 to bring our bills current by the end of December, 2018, at which point we will be able maintain our obligations as we continue to learn to live without our beautiful son, Bear Griffith May 2007 - November 2017.

In the event we exceed our goal, additional monies will be donated to the Donor Network and Asthma-Related organizations on Bear's behalf.
