Smith Family Support Fundraiser

"Life has many ways of testing a person's will, either by nothing happening at all, or by having everything happen all at once." Paulo Coehlo.

This fundraiser was created to help the Smith family deal with the financial burden as they struggle with the devastating loss of loved ones in such a short amount of time. Gene Kinard passed just one month after his grandmother and just weeks after his great grandmother. Gene was a loving fiance and an extraordinary father, leaving two children behind both under the age of three. His mother, Joyce Smith, in addition to her extreme grief, and major health issues, cannot afford the stress of the financial burden. She, along with his children and fiance needs all of the help they can get at this point, even if it's just a $1.

Thank you for donating, sharing and bringing awarness to this cause. Joyce has been a shining light in everyone's life that she encountered, and is living proof that "he gives strength tho the weary and increases the power of the weak" Isaiah 40:29
