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. This fund is set up through the funeral home to anyone who would like to donate a few dollars. Tiara Snyder and I needed the opportunity to say goodbye, and so do many others. This is a huge burden for us. Many people have reached out asking how to help. If you would like to give a few dollars, we would forever be greatful.

If anyone would like to donate food to the dinner after the funeral, please contact my mom, boo( Luann laverick) at 440-789-8978. You can call or text. You also can contact Courtney Doyle Brown. She is coordinating with my mom also.
