For those of you who know Steve and Gerri Reisinger, you know that the loss of Gerri's daughter, Lizzie, in November, 2012 was a very hard loss for them. Please help us help Steve and Gerri honor Lizzie's life. Proceeds will go to help Steve and Gerri purchase a Headstone for Lizzie.

Lizzie was born pre-term at 27 1/2 weeks gestation and because she was a footling breach, an emergency C section was done. Lizzie was delivered blue and had to be resuscitated at birth. Just before she turned 5, a Doctor ran a series of tests discovering she had developed heart disease, a very rare form that only occurs in one in two hundred thousand children. She was placed on a transplant list and received a heart the following April. Even though the transplant was a success, it didn't go without complications that would effect Lizzie as she grew.

Lizzie loved children. She would ask to be driven to the cemetery to visit her nephew's grave quite often. The evening her Grandma passed away, she was with her for hours talking to her and holding her hand.

On November 4th at the age of 18, Lizzie was found on the floor. Gerri performed CPR on her daughter and the EMS called. Lizzie was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Steve and Gerri Reisinger are long time and very active members of the Indiana Patriot Guard Riders. Gerri has suffered a lot of loss in the last couple years, losing her mother, a grandbaby and now Lizzie.

This couple gives so much of themselves to others and we feel this is a great way to say thanks and help a family who has gone through a lot.

"Lizzie's Ride" is an event to raise money to help Steve and Gerri purchase a headstone for Lizzie. The event is May 19th, 2013 and is sponsored by Madden Monument Company, Susie's Bar & Grill, RCB Bookings and U Got Stitched Custom Embroidery. Entertainment provided by Jordan Brooker.

With the help of Madden Monument Company a headstone has been chosen. Our goal to purchase this is $2400.00. Should we exceed our goal, all monies will go to Steve and Gerri to help them with the remaining funeral expenses.

Thank you in advance for your donation and may God bless you.
