Nichols Family Tragedy

On Monday, my brother Chris went home from work to find his wife Heidi unresponsive. After calling 911 and having her rushed to the hospital, she died suddenly that evening. While we still do not no the exact cause, we believe that she had an infection that just consumed her with her heart too weak to fight it. 

No one expects to die at this young age. After review of their personal documents, Chris has discovered that there is no life insurance policy on Heidi to cover funeral expenses. Please consider helping him get through this tragedy so that he can secure cremation services and expenses incurred from this terrible event. 

To quote my brother's recent post: "As most of you are hearing, on Monday night, God realized he was one angel short for his choir. He decided to call on Heidi to fill that spot. For those lucky enough to know her, she has the voice of an angel and the temper of a dragon. You can love her one minute and hate her the next but by the end of the night you are having a shot and a beer with her.

She loves The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Wizard of Oz while collecting thousands of sports cards and making a mean homemade spaghetti sauce. And on a rare occasion all at the same time! She is, not was, my muse. I would not be the musician I am without her. I would not be the husband or father without her. We loved and we fought. We sang and we laughed. We cried and we smiled. We had our firsts. First home, first bike, first bass, first mic, first gig, and now our first curtain call."

We are entrusting Callaway Jones to handle cremation services at this time.

Your support and kindness are so greatly appreciated.
