 ROCK HILL, SC
Jeni and Tim were so excited to head to Costa Rica a few days ago to see their daughter, who lives there, marry the man of her dreams yesterday (9/3/16). If you know Jeni, you know how much Tim means to her, and how wonderful that love is that they share as husband and wife. During the wedding, after the father-daughter dance, Tim had a heart attack. Sadly, he didn't survive it. Our hearts are broken for his wife, Jeni, and their entire family. Through the shock of their terrible loss, Jeni has to now deal with arrangements and expenses that she wasn't at all prepared for.  I know that Jeni would be so grateful for any donation that you can make, and of course, prayers for her and their family. Tim served as a Detective for the York County Sheriff's Office in Rock Hill, SC. Many of you know that Jeni is a wedding photographer, and understandably, she will need some time away from that after such a tragic event at her own daughter's wedding, so any financial help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support during this very difficult time.

Thank you so much to all of you who have prayed, shared, and donated. We have reached our goal. This will help Jeni take care of things as she moves on without her beloved husband by her side. Please keep Jeni and her family in your prayers, as they still have such a long road ahead.

A message from Jeni...
"Family was the most important thing to Tim, to the point that he ignored his body telling him something was wrong. He should have gone to the doctor, but he was afraid that he wouldn't be able to attend our daughter's wedding. Every one of us wish he was still here and hadn't ignored the signs that something was wrong.
If there is anything you can do for us, it is to take care of yourself and your loved ones. If we can save just one life with our tragedy, then he can be a hero one more time."

Wow. We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support for Jeni and their family. We surpassed the halfway mark in less than 24 hours. Thank you SO much to all of you who are praying, sharing, and donating. Thank you for being there for Jeni when she needs it most. Please keep sharing, and especially keep praying.

Condolences on your loss. I know how this can be, as my mother died of a heart attack shortly after leaving my wedding to return home. If you for whatever reason ever needed someone to talk to who has been in the same situation, don't hesitate.

It breaks my heart to read that such a happy occasion can turn into this. My condolences to the family for your loss. I'm sure Tim was very happy to see his daughter on her wedding dress. It's a blessing to be able to be together for one final time on such an important occasion. She looks so beautiful. He looks so proud. And all the loved ones are watching. On the other hand. I've been married for 15 years myself and I wasn't even crying at my own wedding day. To tell the truth marriage has it's difficulties - it's not a fairy tale , and it doesn't always have a happy ending. So if you see this or if anyone see this please work hard on yours = always. Marriage is something very important. The story has reminded me of how important it is. God bless the family and God bless all. Cheers

I cannot even begin to imagine how you even absorb this kind of loss. It's just something that you don't ever think about. I am so very sorry for this family and I pray that they will find comfort in the kind words of so many here. May God Bless you and Give You Strength as you move forward. Again I am so very very sorry.
