Tragic Car Accident Claims Mother & Four Kids

On Friday, September 25th, 2020, my Uncle Jeff returned home with my cousin Brooklyn (10) after work to an empty house after his wife said she was getting groceries but had not returned with the four other children.

Jeff made phone calls and then got a call from a good friend concerned about a car accident close to their home. Jeff went to the scene of the accident. 

On arrival, he found that a grain-filled semi-truck traveling eastbound on 71st Street near Viola, KS ran through the stop sign at 263rd Street at approximately 55mph colliding with the SUV. He was told that it was a white Expedition and that only one person survived. Jeff proceeded to Wesley Medical Center where he waited for hours to find out that his twenty-three-month-old son Mack was very critical, but fighting. Tess (Jessica) and three of the children died on impact. 
Twenty-three-month-old Mack fought hard but succumbed to his injuries on September 26th, 2020.  Jeff (35) and Brooklyn (10) are the only members left of his entire family after his horrific tragedy. Tess (Jessica, 32), Anaiah (10), Jeffrey (4), Mack (23 months), and Hank (4 months).
We are asking for assistance to pay for the medical expenses and funeral arrangements for all 5 members of the family. Anything you can give will be appreciated during this extremely difficult time of grief and unfathomable loss.
