My dad was the most caring, giving person anyone could have ever known. He would cook for all our friends, family and even strangers. He never left anyone out in the cold that’s just who he was. For over 20 years my dad thought he was paying a life insurance policy but in reality he was getting taken advantage of so when he realized he didn’t have any insurance he took a policy out and didn’t meet the 2 year requirement for the insurance company to pay for his services. I had to put my pride to the side to even be able to ask for any assistance to help me put my father away properly. I would like to thank anyone that give any donations and even the ones who want to give and don’t have it your prayers are just as good! Our goal is 7,500 Thank you in advance.

When it comes to my dad, I honestly don’t know where to start. Their was a time he played such a huge part in this community and genuinly did a lot for a lot of people! That man knew everyone. I used to be so embarrassed when someone said” Are you Fruits daughter?” But to be honest I’m
Beyond proud of that man and his many hustles! My best memories as a child happened because that produce stand!

So many times I find myself hearing someone saying, ”I wish We could talk to my loved one, just one more time.” Those words I once didn’t know how to take serious are now haunting me. He never prepared himself for the day we would have to say good bye. When I got the news I didn’t even know where to start, To be honest I still don’t this all feels like a bad dream. I’m thankful for everyone who reached out and please continue to share memories of my dad with me, it really is keeping me sane.

I have no problems asking for help when it comes to something I love like Little League Baseball But with it come to my personal life, I find it very very hard.
