Darryl Waldrup 1982-2015
This past week, my in-laws were struck with some horrible news. My sister-in-law's brother, Darryl, was killed in a motorcycle accident while on his way home from work. Evidently, a deer jumped out in front of his vehicle, which caused the fatal accident. Although he was wearing it helmet, it flew off during the impact. Thankfully, no one else was involved, but sadly Darryl passed away at just 32. He leaves behind his mother, sister (my brother's wife), his wife of only just over one year and four step-children that he loved as his own.
Unfortunately, Darryl didn't have medical insurance and his widow is left with a huge medical bill. In lieu of flowers (Darryl wasn't a flowers kind of guy!), his family is asking for any donations to help with costs incurred. I usually have a policy on my blog against sharing GoFundMe type things unless I can verify their validity, and I can 100% verify this one.
If you have some spare change, any little bit would help alleviate the financial burden Cynthia (his widow) has to bear, in addition to the shock of losing her husband after only a year of marriage. If not, that's okay too and any kind words, prayers, good vibes, good juju, whatever it is you believe, to his family and friends would be very much appreciated at the moment.
You can donate to Darryl's bereavement fund HERE.
Remember, life is short and precious and we aren't ever promised tomorrow. We all know that, but these tragedies remind us. Tell your loved ones that you love them today and everyday.
