On the morning of Tuesday, January 9th, my 40 year-old daughter died. She had suffered most of her young life with addiction as well as physical and mental issues. Her death is still under investigation, but it appears she took her own life.
I have been trying to write this post for hours, actually, if the truth be told, I’ve been trying to write this post in my head since the moment I was contacted by the investigators. One of my first thoughts was to reach out to you, my extended family. But, as you can imagine, I’m really still in shock.
Please don’t worry if I don’t answer your emails or other messages right away. My wonderful wife has possession of my phone and is handling most everything that is coming in.
We are not asking for anything from anybody other than thoughts and prayers. But, if you read between the lines you probably understand that she had no life insurance and her family is raising money for burial expenses and such. Her mother has started a facebook fundraiser to help raise money. I don’t know that much about facebook, have no real desire to learn anything about facebook and if it wasn’t for the dart league I wouldn’t even have facebook. But, if you’d like to contribute, you can hit the same button you hit to donate and I’ll make sure that a special check is written from dragonlaffs.
Thank you for your love and prayers, I haven’t even sent this out and I can already feel your outpouring of love and prayers.
Thank you my dear, dear friends and family.
