Jim and Lizette Eckert Children Memorial Fund

$48,199 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 384 people in 3 months
Created March 19, 2019
We are so heartbroken at the sudden, tragic loss of Jim and Lizette, but this cannot compare to the vacuum that has been left in the hearts and lives of their children.

The outcry of grief and sympathy has been overwhelming.  From family and friends across the country, we are told that coworkers who have never met any of the Eckerts have been moved to pray for us and wish they could do more.  Sympathies are sent from distant cousins and friends as far as Australia and Dublin, Ireland, praying for the family. 

Most notably, the support of the Eckert's friends and church family here in Alton, NH has been staggering.  Free lodging, loaned vehicles, and plenty of food have been provided to the families of the grieving by those who knew and loved the Eckerts.  We are truly humbled.

But the terrible impact of losing Lizette and Jim will be felt by their children for many years to come.  Beyond the primary loss of two devoted parents, the cost of education and health care, among many others things, are all burdens that their parents will not be around to shoulder for them.  

This memorial fund will accept gifts that will be held in a trust to help provide for their future health care and rapidly approaching  education expenses.  It will hopefully be a small start to providing the support they will need in order to have the opportunities and future that their parents always hoped they would have.  

Because the story has been in the news, we are doing all we can to protect the children from excess attention, while still allowing the community that loves them so much and so well to help them in ways that will make a lasting impact.  Thank you for your support in all these things.
