Helping Missy & the kids in this difficult time

The world lost an amazing man on the evening of February 5th 2019 & heaven gained an angel.  Forrest Brooks passed away & has left behind his wife Missy & three young kids, Ava, Greyson & Brynnley.  Please help us in supporting them financially through this difficult time as they make arrangements for Forrest’s celebration(s) of life.  Forrest served his country in the Royal Canadian Navy.  It’s now our turn to serve him & his family.  ❤️  This money will all go to Missy for things such as funeral expenses as well as any other expenses the family incurs as a result of this great loss. Forrest was from Quebec and Missy & the kids would like to be able to fly there to spend time with their family. ❤️  Thank you in advance for supporting this special family in their time of need.

My name is Karen Dykstra & I have known the Brooks' since the Fall of 2013.  My oldest son went through preschool with Ava & my daughter went to preschool with Greyson.  I am so thankful to have gotten the chance to know Forrest & am fortunate to have considered him & Missy friends.  He will be greatly missed.  I am running this Gofundme as my way of helping the family through this hard time.  If you would like to etransfer Missy directly, you can send $ to missy_cross7@hotmail.com.  Please use the password "family" to make this easier for Missy.
