Memorial Fund for the Daly brothers

The Daly family has experienced heartbreaking loss not once, but twice, within eight weeks of each other. This large Irish family of seven children lost two beloved brothers, Brendan and Dermot, both to sudden and tragic vehicle accidents. Often referred to as soulmates, these two were thick as thieves and had a very close bond with each other.  They also took very careful care of their beloved mother, Alice, who they absolutely adored. Brendan served in the Army in the special operations unit as a diesel mechanic. He adored children and would often talk to his sister about embracing the innocence of the children in this world. Dermot was a self-proclaimed 'mama's boy,' in addition to a successful plumber, pipefitter and mechanic. He would do anything for anybody, drive hours to help a friend in need and always maintained the utmost integrity. 

These two young men leave a depth of sadness within everyone who knew them. Please consider donating to this campaign to help this dear family cover the final expenses for two of their beloved family members as well as cover the housing costs as they both were helping to support their family home.
