Hello. My name is Chris Bronner. I lost my brother-in-law, John Stashenko IV, this week to a serious car accident. Read article about accident here.
John was a dedicated and loving father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He was married to his long-time childhood friend, Bobbi, and has two beautiful children, Johnny V (age 3) and Mika (age 1). The entire family is in shock and so many people are reaching out asking how they can help. I created this YouCaring account to help raise money for Bobbi, Johnny V, and Mika to help get the family through this difficult time. Whether Bobbi decides to move back east to be with the rest of her family or stays in California, these funds will help ease some of the financial burden. We appreciate any support you can give. All funds will go to Bobbi and their two young children.
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways
of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun
of happy memories that I leave behind when day is done.
