Double Tragedy - Loss Of Fiancé Then Their Home

For those of you who are fortunate enough to know Nelson Southward, he is a true gem!  For those of you who don't and would like to donate...here is his story:

Nelson, a highly dedicated special education teacher, unexpectedly lost the love of his life of the last 10 years, his best friend, his fiancé and partner, Tracey Lee, in April 2020 from a brain aneurysm.  He has not even had time to properly grieve his loss and now has suffered another devastating loss...the loss of their family home in the CZU fire that ravaged the town of Boulder Creek among others.  He was not able to get home before the mandatory evacuation orders came down, so he could not save any of their cherished memories together.

Through it all, Nelson is drawing on his Faith to get him through and is trying to maintain a positive attitude as he believes that God has a plan for him.

This campaign is being organized by the Constantino Family.  We consider the Southward and Lee families, family!  We grew up with both Nelson and Tracey and have been best of friends for over 45+ years.

Since Nelson lost everything, he is going to use the funds donated to start and adjust to his new life. 

Any contributions are greatly appreciated from the bottom of our hearts!  Please know that the money raised will greatly impact Nelson's life.
