No one can ever find the words to describe how anyone feels when they lose a loved one. Tragically, our family suffered a huge lost. My brother, Carl Savard, was killed in a motorcycle accident. No one knows what actually happened we just know he is looking down on all of us. Now the hard part.. Our family lost a huge piece and while we are all grieving there are things that some don't think about. He left behind a beautiful and loving wife and five smart and beautiful children. He was the sole provider for the family. Maggy has to pick up the pieces and be both mommy and daddy from here on out. There are things that the insurance didn't cover on the motorcycle. There were no life insurance policies in place. They just moved into a new house. All these things are what Maggy has to figure out and while she won't be left to fend for herself, she still needs to care for her kids and their future. I have set up this account because there are a lot of people that have asked for a way to financially build a foundation for them. If you are able to help build this foundation, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you can offer prayers, I thank you from the same depths of my heart. This family needs a lot of uplifting both spiritually and financially. Thank you all for all the love and support you have offered already and I thank all of you that are able to contribute to their future. With all my love,"Cj's sister"
Two things that CJ loved being a part of were firefighting and being a member of the Masonic Lodge. CJ started his firefighter career in New Hampshire and obtained his EMT Intermediate as firefighter in North Carolina. He was also a member of the Charles B. Newcomb Lodge #740 AF&AM in Raleigh, North Carolina. Being a part of a band of brothers was very important to him.
