In memory of Colin Brown - for his family

$27,385 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 216 people in 9 days
In loving memory of Colin Brown, join me in supporting his wife Kyla and two sons Parker(7) and Bennett(5) during this difficult time.  

       After the sudden passing of Colin, the lives of Kyla, Parker and Bennett were forever changed.  He is deeply missed and they now face a journey they never could have prepared for.  In the midst of grieving, Kyla is left to face  financial responsibilities, sole care for her two boys and the emotional burden of losing the love of her life.  With so much unknown of trying to create a new normal I thought we could rally around Kyla and carry some of this burden with her. Please join me in support and let’s show Kyla and these precious  boys that she doesn’t have to walk alone.

My friendship with Colin started when he started dating my cousin and best friend, Kyla. They married and then had their two boys Parker and Bennett.

I knew Colin as a loving husband and phenomenal father. Kind, genuine, intelligent and hilarious. My family and I loved spending time with Uncle Colin. I knew he took pride in his work and had a successful career, but I mostly saw him at home with his family and friends.

Until this last week, I had no idea the impact Colin had on so many lives. Hundreds of people have shared stories and tributes to Colin. And I know that a big reason why this Go-Fund-Me has exceeded the initial goal and destroyed all 4 goals after that is because of his heart and dedication to making a difference with his life.

Thank you so much for your generosity. Your donations are going to make a huge difference for Kyla, Parker and Bennett as they face the difficult upcoming months and years.

THANK YOU! ❤️

Kyla and I stood side by side staring at ourselves in the bathroom mirror, going through the motions of ‘getting ready’ for Colins funeral. She chose a song to play on repeat, ‘take this broken heart...I’ll praise you when it hurts it like hell...’ the lyrics and melody surrounded us. We didn’t speak just continued getting ready.

She began to cry then looked over at me and said ‘I’m so sad but I also feel completely filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I feel like I’m floating on the support of hundreds of people.’

Thank you for your donations, love and support!❤️
