On November 12, 2015, life drastically changed for the Bostic family.  Something was very wrong as Oswald, husband of Sinela and father of 4, never showed up to receive David, their ten year old autistic son, from the school bus.  He was found lying on the floor of his home dead, due to a heart attack.  
 What followed has devastated this poor family.  His family is now struggling to maintain their sanity and regain their equilibrium at this most difficult time.  However, the family is in dire need of funds to help cover mounting expenses, including funeral expenses and other pressing expenses, in particular special needs for David, and some assistance for six year old Ester.  19 year old Shonda now has the responsibility of caring for her autistic brother, who does not understand what happened to their Dad or why he is no longer around.
His wife and family will be extremely grateful for any help they can receive to at least allow them to get back on their their feet as they make this life-changing adjustment.
Oswald was a loving husband and a wonderful dad and is greatly missed. 
Any contributions would be greatly appreciated!
