Support Ashley and her girls!!

It is with the deepest regrets that I am saying these words right now. My dearest friend, Ashley Riccaboni, suffered the loss of her husband the other night in their home. Ashley and Johnny have been married for 6 years and have two of the most beautiful little girls, Twyla and Stellar, to proceed them. 

As as some of you may know, John brought home the primary source of income for their family, as Ashley stays home with her girls most of the week. She works tirelessly to keep their household in order and also works part-time persuing her passion and hobby of teaching hula-hoop exercising classes and crafting for various events throughout the year. 

With the tragic loss of her husband and for their girls, the loss of their father, these next few months, especially, will be a trying time to stay afloat. 

Ashley moved around a lot as a child of a struggling single mother and I know how much it means to her to keep her girls in the house that her and Johnny created together. I want to do everything I can to help them and I know so many of you have asked me what you can do to help. Flowers and cards and your condolences to her mean so much, but I want her to have something to help her a little more long-term. 

With your help, these donations will help Ashley and her children get through the next couple months. Pay their mortgage, hospital bills, provide groceries, household bills, et cetera. Johnny's parents, Bonnie and Jeb Riccaboni are graciously taking care of all funeral costs. If you can spare anything to help, even one dollar, it will be so greatly appreciated. 

I wish there was more I could do to end this pain for my friend and her children- we all do, but this little bit, this will help. 
I encourage everyone to donate, of course, and if you can also share this page to ensure we reach out to all of those willing to help, please do so! They ask to set a goal, but really, I'd like to see this funding go as far as it can for her. Thank you all for taking the time to read this, share it and be a part of helping her family. It truly means to world to me.
