Bridenstine Funeral Fund

Hi all, we are very saddened to learn about the passing of our friend Dick "Trash" Bridenstine's son. I am helping my stepfather set up this gofundme account to try to help Trash out with funeral expenses for Rick. Trash is a wonderful man, who would do anything for anyone, and has fallen on some hard times. Here is my stepfather's message to you all about what has happened. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and to help out. Remember even a little goes a long way.  Jess

"I have known Dick “Trash” Bridenstine for many years and have watched him work hard and raise his four children on his own. He is my best friend and a Brother Mason and is very involved with Masonry in the community. This last Friday it was extremely hard to see him devastated by the loss of one of the most important things in his life. His youngest son Rick passed away suddenly. Rick was born on 10-20-1988. At 27 years old he was way too young to leave his family.
Over the past two months “Trash” was involved in a rollover accident that totaled his vehicle and put him out of work for a short time due to a broken collar bone. Along with the cost of replacing the vehicle and unexpected medical expenses his savings were diminished substantially. Now the family would like to provide a proper burial for their son and are left with no means to cover the costs. By reaching out to the community and Brother Masons across the nation I am asking that you find it in your hearts to help Dick’s family by donating to the cost of the funeral fund.
