Mason Reppen's Memorial Fund

$6,753 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 127 people in 4 months
We lost our dear son Mason Reppen on Friday December 1st. No words can explain the heartbreak and sorrow we are all feeling right now during this most difficult time. He was a loving son, devoted brother, and cherished friend to all that knew him. His smile and laugh lit up the room. His heart warmed everyone he touched.

We fully hope this tragedy can help other families avoid the pain of drug abuse. Please help us prevent further senseless deaths.

Dear Family and Friends,

It has been almost 4 months since Mason left us...We are all doing our best to keep his memory alive and if I do say so myself, we are succeeding. Of course, we all have our moments, but I think you all would think that we are crazy if we did not.

I wanted to **UPDATE** you all regarding Mason's Memorial Fund.

The fund has over $7000 in it - we received some outside donations as well. First, THANK YOU to each and everyone of you who donated. You have no idea what it means to all of us and how grateful we are to know each and everyone of you. We have felt your friendship and love and that is what helps us through each day.

As for how we are going to use the money. I am working with the Oldham County School District and Health Department. They have recently created a new Youth Coalition. This coalition through the guidance of the Health Department, School Board and dedicated Teachers and dedicated Youth from all of our county High Schools are working to make a healthier, safer Oldham County. This group of leaders are just getting their feet wet and are looking for ways to help their fellow students and others with their addictions - whether is be due to the Opioid Crisis or Suicide or Smoking and even Alcohol Abuse.
We are starting in the High Schools and hoping to work our way into the Middle Schools in order to educate our children and parents and reduce the stigma associated with these addictions and get our kids help.

Thank you again to everyone for everything YOU have done. Please share this on FACEBOOK - if you have not donated and are so inclined, we would be honored to receive your donation !

God Bless you All,
Kelley Wirth and Peter Reppen
and the Wirth, Reppen and Ford families

Mason passed away 2 weeks ago today. Today he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications. This was not an honorary Degree either. He would be/is so proud. As are all of his family and friends. The University of Kentucky was absolutely amazing and treated with the utmost care and kindness that we could have ever hoped for. Thank you UK #Wildcats. The go fund me account in Mason’s honor is to help others with their addictions and the families in hope of keeping tragedies like these to a minimum or ever happening again - only by God’s hand. Please educate yourself and your loved ones. It is so easy to get something and you do not even know what it is. Love to all! Thank you
Mason and Mom (Kelley Wirth)
