Wood Man's Widower fund

Hi. My name is Leslie Smith. This fund is for my father Kenneth Smith. He is 80 years old and has always been a hard working man all of his life.  His wife (my step-mom) has been battling cancer for a few years.  He was selling kindling fire wood to make ends meet. On a fixed income of social security alone, it can be hard to do.  His wife lost her battle with cancer a few weeks ago and now his income has been cut in half.  They spent their life savings during her cancer battle. He is still selling fire wood for extra income but some people have asked if they could help him out so this is the reason I have setup this account for him.  #GoBeyondGiving
Post from : Jessica Pittman "I was stopped at the stop sign as the funeral passed. That's when I snapped the picture of him standing there with his hat over his heart. I already had so much respect for Mr. Smith but this just moved me. I was brought to tears. My 9 year old daughter was with me. She didn't understand why I had tears. So we had a great conversation about respect. I was honored and thankful to witness it and for it to be a lesson for my daughter".
