My Youngest Brother Passed

Post by Doug » Fri Mar 31, 2017 6:40 pm

I haven't been around much recently. My Youngest brother passed from a massive heart attack at 47. He wasn't over weight, very slim. He's survived by his Wife and 13 year daughter. It's a good reminder to us all we never know when we'll go.

There has been so many people asking how they can help and we set up a 529 college fund for my brother's Daughter. If you're interested here's the go fund me link:

Thank you for your prayers and support. God Bless.

Thank you everyone! We had my brother's memorial service last weekend. This hasn't been a good month for friends and family. My wife's sister also passed and today I'm going to a friend's service. I'm getting more time now. So I'll be around a little more. But as you know this thing called life takes all kinds of interesting twists and turns.
