Hewitt and Irish family fund

Donation protected
Many of you were watching this tragedy as it unfolded, and helped by sharing photos and information helping to get this man caught . Luckily my sister Brittany and our mom survived although not without injury. This wonderful man and father you see pictured lost his life trying to keep his family safe. All of the funds raised will benefit the Irish family and Hewitt family directly in an attempt to help with medical and funeral costs. 

My name is Nicole Stafford ( maiden name: Irish) and I am the sister of Brittany and the daughter of Kimberly. I set up this fund as an attempt to help both my sister and her two boys (who are now fatherless). The money is intended to help the Hewitt family with funeral costs (if they so wish, we have not been able to discuss plans with them) and also to directly help my sister and her two boys as they've now lost the income of their father. The money will be spent to off set funeral and medical costs and as an emergency fund to help support the needs of my sister and her two boys.  The money will be directly given to the families.
