The Kudela Family

On May 2, 2020 the Kudela family suffered severe trauma and tragedy.  Megan, Chris, Brody & their two dogs, Sammy & Nacho experienced an explosion at their home.  Chris is presently hospitalized with severe burns as a result of the accident.  Megan, Brody, & Poppop Bob were present at the time of the incident and are okay. Due to the present situation we are living in, my sister is unable to be with her husband at the hospital.   Nacho is hospitalized.  Sadly, Sammy lost his life.  The future is unknown for them.  They have lost everything that they have worked for and Megan will not be able to return to work in the near future in order to take care of everything and due to Chris's injuries as well as the uncertainty of his future care & needs.

Please keep Chris in your prayers. Please keep Megan & Brody in your prayers.  Please keep our entire family and network of friends in your prayers.

We are devastated.  We are strong together with support.  Please consider making a donation to help them move forward without the immediate worry of expenses.  

My sister & family are forever grateful to all of the family & friends who are here, providing support in so many ways, during this unimaginable time.

Stay safe.  Stay healthy.  Live in the day.  Hug your family. Appreciate the small things.  Don't take life for granted.  Be grateful for what you have.  Tell others you appreciate them and love them.
