Grieving Family asking for help funding a Memorial for their son, Don .  Funds are needed for transportation and Memorial expenses.   April 5th, while with his mother and family in California, he unexpectedly passed, from a fatal heart attack!  He  had only been with them just over three and a half months.

Don was an activist and community leader for Alaska.  He worked relentlessly with a passion for the organization he cofounded:  "The Childrens Meals Mission", which led to being executive director.  He was a devoted husband, father, friend and awesome God fearing servant.

His roles were many, wonderful loving son, brother, nephew and  very dear friend to many.  He never gave up on helping all that needed help.  He worked hard to support and provide for his family, until stress and health issues began taking its toll on his health.  He was hospitalized shortly after getting to California.  Thereafter he regained strength and was determined to continue with plans for a new begining.

Don loved being able to spend time with his mother and siblings while pushing forward with his life.  However on April 5th, while watching a favorite show with his family he became more exhausted and started to go lie down.  He couldn't and called out to the family who rushed to him.  Immediately they called for help.  While his baby brother held him, the family feverently prayed over him while waiting for the EMTs to arrive.  Sadly they worked on Don nonstop, they couldn't bring him back!  So unexpectedly he transistioned!  No goodbyes for anyone.  After notifying the family it was too much, and took its toll on his mother.  

This has all been stressful on this family!  Funds would be used for a Memorial, traveling exspenses and any remaining funds would go into a trust fund for his three children. Thank you all for your prayers, kindness, contributions, and understanding.  God Bless You!
