Mending a family after a fatal plane crash

On Thursday 6/27/19 an airplane crashed into the home of Loretta and Henry Parker in Hope Mills, NC.  This fatal accident killed Henry and their family dog. Their home was destroyed and their personal belongings are scattered/destroyed. Loretta was the only survivor of the accident and she is left to pick up the pieces. Together Henry (Hank) and Loretta (Lynne) have 3 children: Derek, Chance, and Chelsea. Their children all live in Michigan and have travelled to North Carolina to be with their mother, while grieving the loss of their father. Henry was an amazing husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend that will be deeply missed. Besides the destruction of their house and the huge financial obligations tied to this loss, Henry was also the main income source in the home. Loretta, who was buried in the wreckage, has many medical needs that will involve on going care. The family is making funeral arrangements, organizing the cleanup of their home/personal items, and transporting items back to Michigan. The financial stress is high and any donations to this amazing family would be greatly appreciated.
