In Loving Memory of Craig O'Neal Washington

 

Sometimes life deals you a hand that you do not know how to handle. Our family was dealt such a hand on February 21, 2012.  At the ages of 10 and 6, Cameron and Kennedy were forced to say their last goodbyes to their greatest hero, their Daddy. Craig died suddenly of heart failure at the age of 38. We were forced to realize he would not be there to shake his son's hand as he walked across the graduation stage or to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. There would be no more boys weekends with his brothers. His friends would no longer hear his silly jokes and infectious laugh. His heartbroken mother would have to kiss her baby boy for the last time. I would never again have the chance to whisper our secret code word into his ear.

Craig was loved by many and he is greatly missed. We are all the faces of the insurmountable devastation that heart disease can bring. When enduring such loss, there is a choice to either give in to your grief or find some hope that helps you push through it. Our hope is that more people will be made aware of heart disease and ways to prevent it. To honor Craig and keep his memory alive we would like to raise funds to donate in support of the heart disease prevention programs. Please join us in our efforts by making a donation to the American Heart Association in Craig's memory.

Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many! You can make your donation online by clicking the donation link.  Any amount helps.  We are grateful for your support.  From our hearts to yours, we thank you.
