Paying Tribute to Christopher Nave and Family

Alicia’s husband, Christopher Nave passed away unexpectedly of a major heart attack, known as the widowmaker on Tuesday October 29,2019. It is called that because once a person starts having this form of heart attack, the hospital has 60to90 minutes to clear the blockage in the left ventricle of the heart. Requiring surgery.
It only took her 4 minutes to get him to the hospital and she called 911 on the way and told them they were coming. She gave them all the necessary information over the phone and they notified Northern Hospital in Surry County North Carolina that they were on their way.
As soon as  they got there they took Chris inside they gurnied him, ekgs, ivy drip etc.. this hospital had to stabilize him to get him life flighted to another hospital for the surgery required to save his life. They were not able to stabilize him. 
Chris had no sign or symptoms, that he shared with anyone prior to this event.
They called Alicia outback to see him and she told him to stay strong and that he was going to be okay. She told him that she loved him and not to worry. He then passed out. He was in so much pain. They told her that she had to leave the room, as they started shocking him. They were able to get him back. The Doctors went out to get Alicia again and this time when she went back to see him life flight was there, ready to take Chris.  Chris’ heart beat was all over the map. They weren't able to stabilize him. He moaned in pain and kept looking at Alicia as she was telling him that she loved him over and over and through his pain he, in short breath, was able to reply with an “I love you”. His heart rate started going all erratic again, nurses were yelling for doctors and they made Alicia leave the room again.  As she stood in the lobby crying, She felt it. A deep burn in her chest, she was feeling her soul mates pain.  She prayed and begged in that waiting room, just waiting and praying. 
The Doctors came to get Alicia again but this time she wasn’t able to go to Chris’ room. A brought her to a side room where the doctor was that confirmed what she already knew in her soul to be the truth. 9:45pm was Christopher's official time of death.
Nothing about this feels real. Alicia and her family are in shock. Chris loved Alicia so whole heartedly. He healed her heart and soul from the past torment she had been through. He showed her true love. He has left behind his soul mate and her children who saw him as a hero. They may not have been his blood but he loved them like they were. 

All they have left of their Hero now is pictures, t-shirts that still smell like him and so many wonderful memories  

Alicia is a single mother now, that is their reality. Their lives have  forever changed. Their tomorrows will not be the same as they had all imagined.

Alicia and her children need so much love in the next few days, weeks, month and years. There is now a hole in their hearts that will take a lot to fill.

Please keep checking in with Alicia. Please keep praying for her, Kassidy and Austin as they struggle with each day. 

Money will never fix any of this but it can help Alicia create a new beginning for her family. Chris left with no Insurance Policies and nothing to leave behind for his family. Alicia needs all the help we can give her with this new challenge ahead. Being a single mom is not an easy task, especially when your heart is broken and you’re the only left to be strong. 

Please Share this with your Family and Friends anddonate what you can. Every penny is greatly appreciated and will be used for the greater good of this family. 

Thank you all for your prayers.
