Cancer, Venture fire, and lots of tears

I usually don't post things like this, but this story has absolutely broken my heart and just keeps getting worse..... I knew Cause and Tracy when we were all in college. They got married, had a baby and just when they conceived their second child Cause was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer, he passed away after a good strong fight. He was in his mid 30's and super healthy. He left his two children and Tracy.

As if that wasn't terrible enough, the house they lived in together burnt down during the big fire in Ventura. I'm absolutely speechless. The worst things seem to happen to the best people. Cause and Tracy are the best kind of people I know.

If you have a minute, take a look at her go fund me page. She can use all the help she can get.

Spend time with your loved ones.

Thank you John
Every time I look at that photo of Cause with no hair holding his newborn it feels like I got punched in the gut.

John, you're a big hearted benevolent stud! I can't imagine anywhere else in the world where this would this happen. What a community. Boat drinks! I'm in.

Bump.
