Support for Marple Family

$45,945 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 314 people in 11 months
Created May 5, 2018

We are all shocked and devastated by the loss of Kristin Anne Hughes Marple, during a happy and forward-looking time in her life. Having found her soul mate, and been blessed with her beautiful son, Thomas, later in life, she was also due to start her ideal job after maternity leave the very day after this tragedy struck .

In the midst of David's grief and need to find a way to single-parent sweet Thomas, he faces significant challenges from this loss.  The immediate and unexpected burden of co-pay expenses from ICU and palliative care, funeral expenses, and maintaining the home they worked so hard to build -- without Kristin's anticipated income and mothering presence-- are overwhelming stresses.

Dozens of people have offered to help and support in any way they can, and that support is indeed needed. We have set a goal that may help cover funeral and hospital expenses, and hopefully give David some minor relief going forward these first months during his hiatus from work as he figures out how to proceed in his life without Kristin by his side. We are beyond grateful for any level of help that is offered.

We are humbled and so deeply gratified by the generosity we have encountered here in such a short time. We are especially astounded that so many people who did not have the good fortune of knowing our Kristin are showing such love and compassion with their generosity.

Even in the course of a day in trying to plan the way ahead, we are stunned at the costs flowing in. Therefore, we have decided as a family to raise this goal for David, so that with continued generosity he may find some relief as he awaits the hospital bills and plans for Thomas' care when he must return to work.

Our gratitude is immense.
