The Stoneburner Family

This campaign is on the behalf of the Stoneburner family.  Nikki Stoneburner, age 34 fought Sarcoma cancer in the most fierce and fearless way, until her passing on Nov. 12th.  She said goodbye to her husband SSG. Shane Stoneburner and their two children, Olivia 9 and Ethan 6.  Cancer does not care who it takes, who it hurts, or who it leaves behind. It comes into your life and starts to break the threads that hold you, and you are left to see pieces of yourself slip away and dreams fade. … but in the end,  the most amazing thing happens, cancer loses its strength to grace and love.  When trying to express the courage and quality of Nikki, we found ourselves searching for synomns to the words "awesome" which literally means "awe-inspiring" and "amazing"  defined as, " causing great surprise or wonder; astonishing.  And that's just it,  Nikki lived a life so true to herself and so courageous, that these words were simply not good enough to describe her.  We are asking that if you find in it in your heart, to contribute to this gofundme, campaign, on behalf of  Shane, Olivia and Ethan, to help with funeral expenses, such as travel and ceremony costs.  Anything remaining will go directly to the college fund of Olivia and Ethan.  Shane is part of the NightStalker family and has been serving in United States Army for 12 years, it is my sincere hope that we can return even the smallest gesture to him and his family in their time of need.  

~Thank you so very much,  from the 4th Battalion 160th SOAR (Abn) Night Stalker family
