A message from Sandee..."I want to thank you so much again for all you have done and continue to do for my family. I'm not quite sure what I did to deserve all of the love and support that continues to flow and I don't know how I can ever repay anyone for their generosity, love and support, except to make sure that my boys understand and are humbled by this experience and will pay it forward whenever the opportunity arises. Thank you so much. I don't know what we would do without every single one of you, family and friends... God bless you all. You will never understand exactly how much you all mean to us."

John Stotz was a humanitarian that gave graciously to Ingold Sports Facility, athletic teams, the Fallbrook community, his family and friends. John was a father, husband, son, brother, coach, and friend...among other things. There is a great financial need as John was the sole support of his family. His loss leaves behind big shoes to fill in the community, the sports facility and most importantly in his family. The Stotz family (Sandee, Connor & Gavin) need the love and support of everyone to get them through this journey. Everyone feels helpless and asks "what can I do to help" ...this is how you can help. No donation is too small because this is a collective effort to give back to a family that has lost so much. Together we will all make a difference. We created this site so that everyone is comfortable knowing the funds you donate will go to Sandee and the boys. You can watch how it increases and be proud of what we raise. I'm so grateful to be part of the community that John and Sandee called friends and family and how we pull together in times of need!

The celebration of life and fundraiser for John was an awesome showing of love and support in all the ways that matter. What an outpouring of love and respect for the man John was and the legacy he left behind. The individuals that put their hearts into the preparation I applaud you as you honored your friend/family well. To all the guests and donors your generosity is appreciated beyond measure. The gofundme site is still accepting donations for those that may have been unable to attend etc. At times of loss and suffering no amount of money can mend broken hearts but your generosity has lightened the burden. Many thanks....

Sandee sends her love, appreciation and humble gratitude to everyone that has shared in this journey wiht their well wishes and generosity. We are quickly approaching this weekend's Celebration of Life & Fundraiser to be held on Oct. 6 beginning at 3pm at Ingold Sports Facility in Fallbrook. The suggested donation is $10 pp at the gate. It is surely going to be a tribute to a special man with live music, food, drinks, activities for kids, a memorial service. There are lots of ways you can get involved...live and silent auction items still needed, financial donations, and please note all funds raised go to the family for very necessary medical bills etc...please contact me if you want to help or need more information. Please continue to share with others.

My uncle is Mr. Stotz friend and misses him a lot. I want to give my allowance to you this week. I had fun at the memorial yesterday and the hamburgers were good. I am sorry for what happened to Mr. Stotz.
