THIS EVENT TO BENEFIT THE TAYLOR and the JOHNS FAMILY
Cedrick Taylor enlisted right after 9/11. He did his tour and more, but coming home and getting VA help didn’t work out. PTSD got the best of Cedrick in November 2016 at the age of 41.
His families unexpected $15,000 funeral costs were all out of pocket. No VA death benefits – the VA wouldn’t even fly his body back home. This has emotionally drained the family. His father lost his “best friend”. His sister – who has the same piercing blue eyes as Cedrick – can’t bear to look in the mirror anymore as they remind her of him. Mom has found some help by writing Cedrick’s Silver Lining Memorial – good memories of their beloved. You can see what she wrote about her son here.
Jared Johns lived with his twin brother Jacob. They shared an apartment in their home town, close to the parents and family. Moments before Jared, age 24, fired that pistol to end his life, he recorded a cell phone video asking for forgiveness, and reassuring everyone that because of his PTSD, that this was the best thing to do.
After his twin brother found him, the family’s ordeal began. The VA denied this request for burial benefits because he was less than honorably discharged. The funeral home took possession of the body on that Tuesday, but his parents weren’t allowed to see him until Friday. Why? Because they didn’t have the $5,000 needed for the funeral home. Dad took a loan.
Both is parents contributed to his Silver Lining Memorial. You can see that here.
Join us for a great cause with great beer, BBQ, music and football on the Sunday before New Year’s Eve
