Terrible Tower Accident

My older Brother David Shurtz  ( AA9TJ ) was working on a communications tower for me and his safety strap broke loose he fell 45 to 50 feet landing on the ground hard. He had severe injuries and had been to 3 hospitals via helicopter flights. He was unemployed due to Covid-19 and was looking for work. He and his wife were  near retirement age and this will devastate his widow Nancy financially and the medical bills are coming in fast and are very high. She needs financial help so badly. I set fund at $20,000  but it could go much higher please help any donation will be a great blessing. He  has passed away and now has been laid to rest so now on top of medical expenses there is funeral and burrial  expenses  for her to pay. This is quickly becoming more and more expensive for his Widow She needs help. Please find it in your heart to donate whatever you can  and or pray for her it kills me to see my  wonderful Sister-in-Law face such hardships knowing my Brother died trying to help me since I can't do what he was doing being disabled with leg braces and serious spinal injuries. He ands I were both Amateur Radio Operators and he wanted me to be able to do all that he was able to do and communicate on Ham Radio.  We had such big plans and were really becomming close again after many years of work and other duties that kept us too busy. Please Help your gifts will be greatly appreciated and you will be blessed for your kindness. We are our Brothers Keepers.
