My dear friend Kelly's husband Roy passed away suddenly on February 7th, 2015 from a pulmonary embolism.
I wanted to create this to help Kelly cover funeral costs as well as have some extra money to use for her household expenses. She is currently in a Masters Program obtaining a degree to become a certified elementary teacher.
Roy and Kelly have 3 children. Ally (19) Haley (6) and Molly (4).
Their story is a special one. After 3 years of dating, Roy and Kelly were wed on August 17, 2008. Shortly after their wedding they received a phone call that would change their life. A sweet baby girl named Haley was born and needed a home. Without hesitation they took her in and started the process to adopt her. On July 14, 2010, Haley officially became an Egbert! She is such a bright and happy little girl who everyone loves to be around, she was also Daddy's girl. She had him wrapped around her finger tight. :) She is in first grade.
In 2009, Roy and Kelly were given the opportunity to have Roy's niece, Ally, join their family. She was 13 when she moved in and on April 26th, 2012- she too, officially became an Egbert! Ally was such a beautiful addition to their perfect little family. She is an exceptional student and athlete. She graduated from Wilson High School last year and is now a full time student attending the University of Oregon. Go Ducks!
First comes love, then comes marriage, Haley, Ally and then the baby in the baby carriage! January 6th, 2011 they welcomed little Miss Molly Ann Egbert into the world. She completed their family. Molly is also a happy little girl, full of life and is extremely hilarious, a fantastic trait she got from Mom & Dad!
Roy and Kelly have always been so selfless. They always have everyone else's interest at heart. They would do anything to help people out and they are amazing friends.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I am hoping we can rally together and help Kelly, Ally, Haley and Molly out during this tragic time in their lives.
Rest in Peace Roy. You are sorely missed by all.
