Please Join Us in Supporting This Simulation Champion In Need
Please join me in supporting Patrick Smith, Government Strategic Account Manager for the U.S. Armed Services at Laerdal Medical, who is accepting support to cover unforeseen expenses due to the tragic loss of a member of his family.
“On March 13, 2015 Deanna Faye Pagel died at the age of 52 from injuries sustained in a homicide in Victoria, Texas. Unfortunately, there have been no suspects or arrests at this time and the investigation is being handled locally.
Faye was a very social person and loved being around people, family, and her pets. She was a mother of three children (Ambra, Nikki, and Cody) and a grandmother of eight wonderful grandchildren. One thing that Faye was also known for was her green thumb which she seemed to always be working in the garden and loved planting and making things beautiful.
My family had also recently lost my father (Charlie Smith) on this past Christmas Eve and pooled all of our funds together plus the very kind donations from friends and family through “GoFundMe” to assist with his funeral expenses.
Due to Faye’s untimely departure, our family was not prepared for the funeral / memorial expenses or possible reward for anyone assisting in the investigation that leads to the conviction of the person(s) responsible for taking such a sweet person from our family.
Thank you and God bless….”
