Sister dealing with the loss of her husband.

43556598_157431465770908_r.jpeg43556598_1574314672917057_r.jpegNovember 15th 2019 my 28 year old sister lost her 27 year old husband, Alex. He passed away while he was out of town working to support her and their 7 month old son, Carter. The loss was unexpected and left my sister with more than just grief but a loss in financial security.  For a young couple, it may seem like time is on your side but this time was unexpectedly cut short, which leads to a lot of hopelessness, loneliness, and what if’s. You don’t feel like working, you don’t feel like socializing and you feel the burden of why is this happening to me, to my children,  to my family.  The purpose of this GoFundMe is to collect as much as I can for my sister and help her in this time of financial loss. With a 7 month old baby it’s hard to imagine how hard it must be to get back on track while also grieving.  I am currently in the military and have life insurance I myself which would rid some of the financial burden on my wife but sadly this was not an option for my sister Christina. My hopes is to reach a set goal and contribute 100% of the donations to my sister to help alleviate the additional unneeded  stress in dealing with the loss of a spouse. All I ask is for the community to open their hearts and help our family by helping my sister get back on track so she can grieve peacefully! Thank you all so much!
