Paying tribute to BJ

I lost my good friend BJ to Covid.

BJ was a good hearted person who gave his all to anyone who needed help.  He was a good friend who was always there for me even when I didn’t know I needed him at the moment. He would do the Autism walk with me to help support autism awareness. The year he couldn’t do the walk he got up early and delivered donuts to those of us who were doing the walk. He would show up at times when you weren’t expecting him to but he knew you were in need of something. He will be missed by many  including his community where he did many volunteer jobs. I know he helped tutoring students in his community and did after school programs. 
His wife is just as wonderful. I know things are going to be hard for her.  We can help lighten her load with prayers and funds to help with funeral or memorial expenses. They could also help with medical bills.  I will be giving the money to her as it is needed to help pay for expenses.  

If you are able to help either by donating or saying a prayer it would be very appreciated.
