Support for the Stigge Family

On the evening of August 25th, my uncle, Justin Stigge, unexpectedly passed away at his home in Marion, Iowa. Justin was the father of my three beautiful cousins, Carter(20), Sydney(18), and Calvin(16), who are now experiencing grief like no child should ever have to experience. 

Both Carter(Junior) and Sydney(Freshman) are students at the University of Iowa and had only been in school a week when this tragedy occured. I decided to start a go-fund-me to raise money that will help the them in their pursuits of education, traveling home, living expenses, etc. Calvin will also attend college in two years and I would love to know he is supported, similarly. 

I have never been through such an unconceivably painful situation as my cousins are currently experiencing, but I can imagine that having the burden of expenses removed from the equation would take away a considerable amount of their stress. In addition, my aunt Lisa (Justin's wife) would be relieved of a major burden knowing that her kids are taken care of, financially.

I didn't know what to put as the goal for the amount of money I'd like to see raised, but I do know that every dollar will mean the world to my relatives in this time of tragedy. I recognize that many people may be donating to the victims of Harvey at this time (I have donated myself), but I would be immensely greatful for your donation towards Lisa's family who has lost something so irreplaceable here in Iowa.
