Local Business owner needs a healing

Craig Reed is a local business owner who has had a long-time dream of opening his own Small Engine Shop. He has always been a hard-worker and looked forward to putting that work ethic towards building his own dream. He put everything he had into making his dream come true.  All the prep work was done, deposits were made, a lease was signed for a building, equipment was purchased, employees were hired and they were set for a grand opening. A grand opening that literally coincided with the mandatory COVID shutdowns in March 2020. It was a huge blow right out of the gate. 

They did what any entrepreneur would do, they brainstormed and came up with ways to get their business in front of potential new clients. They helped residential as well as commercial customers, and they were gaining some traction easily becoming known as a place that would give you an honest assessment of what you needed and saving you money if they could by treating you the old-fashioned way - with integrity and care. 

But things quickly spun out of control and the business began to fail due to the pandemic. Craig has been silently trying to deal with the struggles, and trying to fix a world of trouble on his own. On December 11th, Craig's wife, Suzan came home hours earlier than she normally would have that day, and she found him barely breathing. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital, but Craig was in a coma and on a ventilator in Intensive Care. Thankfully as of December 13th things seem to be progressing as they were able to remove Craig from the ventilator and he is awake trying to recover. 

A lot of people have asked for someplace where they can donate and give to this family, so we set up this Gofundme to give you a way to do that. Thank you for your consideration. Every little bit helps.
