Congrats on making the goal and Thank You to you all! Hoffy's legacy speaks for itself...which is why it seemed to be effortless to meet our original goal and then the current $50,000 goal. Cherisse and I didn't set out to do this for recognition, so please no need to thank us; we just happened to think about doing it first. With all the people Hoffy has impacted and all the lives he has helped to mold, if it wasn't us, someone else was bound to do something like this. You all helped drive this campaign: by sharing the posts, leaving comments, and donating what you could. You all went above and beyond which is nothing short of what Hoffy deserves! Again, THANK YOU!

Thank you again to everyone who has contributed. Keisha (Mr. Hoftyzer’s wife) sends her thanks and she most appreciates the kind words that you all have left about her late husband. Obviously, this is a trying time for her but the outpouring of this love helps her see the impact he has left even though, as many of us agree, he has been taken too soon. I’ve increased the goal to $50,000...and even though the family is not even thinking about this money right now because they are grieving...later on it’ll be a blessing. Even if it’s not used for something immediate, this will definitely be something for the future, possibly the educational security for their two kids. Thank you all for your contributions so far and the outpouring of love...I knew Hoffy is loved but I didn’t anticipate just how much! You all are amazing; rather, he is amazing because look at what his memory has inspired people to give. I have never been more proud to be a technite that I am during this whole process. Thank you thank you and thank you. If you have any questions or any info you’re trying to get to the family, please shoot me a message and I’ll do my part to get that message to them. Again, THANK YOU!

First of all I want to start by saying WOW! WOOOOOW! You all are absolutely amazing. When I first set out to do this, as stated prior, I did not anticipate this at all. In 24hours over $22,000 has been raised....UNBELIEVABLE. I know that the family didn't expect this, because I definitely didn't, but they're currently trying to figure out how to proceed with this outpouring of love. I made this gofundme right off the bat with the clear indication that this money isn't for me; I want to assure all that have paid, that I CANNOT and would NEVER withdraw the money for myself. I know the goal of $15,000 has been surpassed but the family has requested the goal not be raised as they get together and come up with a plan as to how to move forward. Thank you for your love, support and kind words, this will be a great place for the family to visit and remember their loved one. I've made it my mission to personally thank everyone and i'm certain that thank you is extended from his family as well. I will keep you all posted on the happenings concerning this page and again thank you. RIP Hoffy, you ARE loved!
