Fund raising for the Widmans

It is so heartwarming to see so many people come together to help out this young family. Several communities are having fundraisers. The three local police departments are doing their boot and bucket collections at local intersections.

It has been amazing to see the amount of police officers, friends, and family that have stopped by to comfort Susanna and the kids. They have one officer that stays in front of the house to keep the media out. I know it is driving the media crazy, because they have been knocking at my door to try to get a statement. We have decided to refrain from speaking to the media in respect to the family and their wishes. The different police departments seem to have a schedule. There are large amounts of people stopping by a specific intervals. Susanna has two police cars as escorts no matter where she needs to go. Her husband's police force has really stepped up and helped in an amazing way.

He was so young,
We do live in such a wicked world every day on our news there is so much sad news.
I do try to help others by helping a charity.
