Jeff Martinez  ERIE, CO
As many of you know this past week has been very trying on our family. Yesterday while our family was gathered to support one of our uncles who is preparing to go home, we were notified of the tragedy to Mark, Erin and their family. Those who know us, know that this family has a bond that goes beyond being and an uncle, aunt, grandpa, grandma, mom, dad or cousin . Our bond is that of a brother and sister, a bond that can only be explained by being part of this family. Our family is very big and the love we have for one another is even bigger. Details are minimal at this time and we are hoping to know more today. I'm asking that you keep Mark and Erin's family and the Irwin family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

My heart is breaking over this tragedy. My thought and prayers are with Mark and Erin's family and friends! My brother is their neighbor and I had the pleasure of waving to Mark and his dogs each year I'd come to visit. My brother always spoke very highly of him and his family. I am praying continuously and would like to know where I can send donations for the kids. Please provide the age's of the children, so I can pass on the info to my friends and colleagues. Blessings on everyone who has helped and thank you for staring this GoFundMe page! Sincerely - Sabrina DeMonica
