Our initial goal of $10,000 was exceeded in a matter of days with your support and helped greatly with the expenses associated in bringing PJ home and covering his funeral. There are no words to express how grateful PJ's family is at the outpouring of love and support.
A real young man of the sea, PJ was a natural both in and out of the water. He lived with his Mom and Dad, Sue and Pete, in Jupiter, and helped them financially. Sue is working, but continues to battle cancer. Due to severe issues with his knees, Pete is unable to work his small construction business. PJ's Grandpa Bob (Captain Bob to many), splits his time among Jupiter and the Orlando area where PJ's aunt and uncle live.
Any ongoing support we can provide to PJ's family is greatly appreciated. Please, for PJ, let's continue to help out.
