Kyle and Madison Nester
Anything helps them! It takes a village and Kyle is stepping up in a big way for his sister.
There was no insurance policy and there will be a celebration of life ceremony when the young adults are ready.
Please know that their parents would have done nothing less then the community is doing for them, for any of our children. They were both wonderful people and they loved Kyle and Madison immensely.
Roy was a coach for GMYA football league as Kyle was growing up therefore impacting many young men in the community. They lovingly referred to him as "Father Roy".
Tammy was also very present, she was the typical "sports mom" () and my friend.
Kyles willingness to step up for Madison is just a piece of the goodness they instilled in their children and they would be so pleased.
God Bless you all !!
I dont think that deleting the campaign at 9,999 is a good idea. So what if the money becomes taxed. Just find a trusted accountant and pay them to figure it out. He is going to need all the money he can get to get through the next few years especially if they both want to go to college. The money will hwlp pay for housing food shelter, possible medical expenses etc. creating another account in the grandmothers name you will still have to stop at 9,999. I am hoping they get enough money to get them through the next 4 or 5 years.
This story and these kids have affected me immensely. While I don't know them, my heart just goes out to them. I wanted to let the family know I submitted their story to Ellen, I don't know what will happen, but more hope she will choose these kids and honor their dedication to each other and their parents. Xoxoxoxo
I lost my parents 15 months apart; 2015 and 2016. I felt this wasn't fair and my brother and I were too young. But this absolutely breaks my heart for you two. I hope you both lean on each other in the days and years ahead and don't ever feel that you're alone.
I am not a tax professional but I am fairly certain there is a $14,000 exemption for gifts PER DONOR - there should be no taxes on any gifts so long as no individual donation exceeds that amount. Even if any donations did exceed this amount, the tax liability would fall to the donor, not the recipient. Please double check with a licensed tax professional to make sure, but you should be in the clear to keep 100% of the proceeds here. Best wishes and stay strong.
My heart goes out to you both. I cannot fathom at my age to lose both my parents and at your age it must be beyond anything you ever fathomed. I don't know your family situation but hope you have peeps in your area you can rely on. My first thought was to see where you were located as if you were near Southern California I would have offered you a place to live with my young adult daughter, me and our own dogs and our fosters. Sadly you are no where near me but should you ever be in the Orange County, CA area and be in need of contacts, please PM me. My heart breaks for both of you and I sincerely hope you receive the help you need.
Goes to show how important it is for parents to make funds available for life insurance
AS I HAVE A FINANCIAL BACKGROUND GET A TAX ADVISOR. ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU WANT TO MAKE THE BEST & RIGHT DECISIONS FOR THE FUTURE **** I SEE YOU ARE FROM COLUMBUS OHIO WHICH IS A BIG ENOUGH PLACE FOR YOU TO FIND GOOD FINANCIAL REPRESENTATION **** HOPEFULLY EVEN FREE AS IT WOULD BE NICE IF A GOOD SOUL DONATED HIS TIME TO THIS WORTHY CASE I GUESS FIRST I WOULD GO TO BIG LOCAL BANKS & LAW FIRMS AND ASK THEM FOR SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS. ANYWAY, BEST OF LUCK & SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS, TO YOU KIDS
