Rest in Peace Dad (help us rebuild our lives)

On March 15th 2021, my amazing Dad passed away of a sudden heart attack at the age of 65. My dad was a beloved husband, brother, uncle, friend, father and grandpa (Poppy). He has a left a hole in our lives that will never be filled. We all miss him more than words can say. 

Unfortunately, he was also the main breadwinner and he worked 7 days a week for over 40 years to take care of his family.  Our family is struggling to put the pieces back together through our grief, and we would greatly appreciate any help you could offer. 

Any funds raised will be used to relocate, as the house my Mom shared with my Dad is not suitable for our new needs. Also, he passed away in the dining room and the memory is too much for my Mom to handle.

I (April DeLong) am moving back to Denver to try to fill my Dad's shoes in taking care of the family.  Since this was all so unexpected, we are sort of scrambling to get a plan together. 

We weren't sure what goal to set for the Gofundme, we would just be grateful for any and all help. 

Rest in Peace, Dad. We love you and will see you soon. 55586230_1616819473773793_r.jpeg
