Too much loss for one family. Within the space of one week - a beloved first-born son, a hero and inspiration to so many, was lost suddenly to a virus. While we all mourn and try to find words and deeds to show our love for Atticus and his family (Mom, Dad, and two brothers) this week, another unimaginable tragedy hit this family! Their house burned and much was lost, although thankfully, the family made it out safely. Some things are irreplaceable - the baby things belonging to Atticus, his bike and toys, and other memorabilia, were lost. Their pets were lost. We can't bring back any of what was lost this last week - especially not the biggest, the most painful loss of Atticus.
We can help replace other things - cars that were lost, clothing, etc. There will be so many expenses, no matter what insurance may pay - this is an extreme hardship. And for many of us, there just isn't any other way we can help - but money always helps at some basic level.
Please donate what you can - it will go DIRECTLY TO MARISSA - and please share this every where you can.
We can't bring Atticus back, but we can show our love for him and his family in this way.
