Too many loses in such little time

Hello Everyone,

I created this account to help out my dear friend Laurel "Pat" Berry.
These past few week haven't been the best time of Laurel's life.
About two weeks ago Laurel's mother passed away, and thankfully everything was in place for her final farewell. Unfortunately On Monday August 13, 2018 Laurel received a call from her son's Ex-girlfriend with extreme concern. Timothy's "EX" was trying to get a hold of him since she had seen Facebook postings  about an accident on the corner of Somerset and Woodruff regarding a bicyclist.
Extremely concerned, Timothy's ex called Laurel and asked if Timothy was home, and unfortunately when Laurel received the call she was not home and couldn't confirm If Timothy was in fact home. As soon as Laurel got off the phone she rushed home.
Laurel looked throughout the house and even check his man cave he had built in the garage.... Timothy was not home.
With total doubt Laurel drove the corner of Somerset and Woodruff to see if it was Timothy.
"Not today Lord, Not Today" Laurel kept saying with total doubt...
When Laurel arrived she spoke to the Police officer and stated her name and asked the officer if he knew who the victim was?
At that time he couldn't say yes or no since he did not know. The only thing the office was able to tell was to wait until they got back to her.
Moments later, Laurel overheard her name through to police officer scanner inside the car..."Where is Laurel Berry" she heard.
The coroner came up to laurel and asked for her son's full name... She gave the coroner Timothy's full name and then the coroner handed Timothy's ID card to her.

In less than a month Laurel lost her Mother and Son.
Also, August 13 happened to be Laurel's Mother birthday the exact same day Timothy past away.

These donations are going to help Laurel with Timothy’s funeral services.


Any donations will help Laurel and her family.
