Support good samaritan Jon's family

For as long as I've known them, I've been amazed at how passionately Jon and Aimee Murphy loved each other. They looked after each other and their family the way thoroughly good people do.

Jon was a first rate protector. When I started dating his step daughter, he let me know in no uncertain terms that his eyes were on me, and I was a better man for it. When someone tried to break into his house when his family was home a while back, he sprang into action with little regard for his own safety and saved the day.  He worked as hard and selflessly as anyone I've ever met, and he did it all for his family.

This weekend, Jon and his wife Aimee used their rare day off to go to the mall together and get their wedding rings cleaned. While they were there, two horrible people decided to rob the store and threaten the safety of Jon's wife and everyone else. Jon, the protector, lost his life making sure nobody else did. 

Jon loved Harleys, the Marine Corps (he was a huge supporter to the point of having a patriotic tribute to the Corps in a glass case in his living room, but wasn't able to serve himself), and being a good man, but over everything else I believe he loved his wife and family.  Like Jon, Aimee and the rest of Jon's family are strong.  But, they could use all the love and support they can get right now.  Any form of support would be appreciated.

Thanks for reading,

Chris
