Shawn's Medical/Memorial Expenses

Recently we had to say good bye to Shawn Ritchie, a loving father whose time with us was cut short. After fighting a hard battle in the hospital, his liver and kidneys began to fail, and, after several surgeries, Shawn passed away. Even though the fight was lost, his memory carries on in all of those who loved him.

Asking for help is hard to do, especially when you are struggling with grief. I am here to ask for financial help for my best friend, Kelly Motsinger. She, and their son Anderson, are left with a huge hole in their hearts. Kelly never left his side while he was in the hospital (not even to feed herself). The money you donate today will be used for medical expenses, memorial costs and income supplement for her and their child. If you are unable to donate today, then please share this post. Anything you can spare, even a dollar, will help tremendously.
