Pls help save our home my husband Don Knechtel worked so hard to provide. All our memories are here of the man we loved more than anything

Hello family and friends,

My name is Lisa Knechtel and many of you will know me because you are my family and friends, but a lot of you will only know me because one of your family and friends shared my story with you.

First let me thank you for taking the time to read this, my husband Don was killed June 1st while working in Port Angeles. because of the loss of my husband don, i find myself in a position i am neither familiar or comfortable with and that is to ask for help. I do this with the full knowledge that their are many people out there who are worse off then me and my family, But i do this from my heart. Because of Don's murder it is not a matter of if but when i will loose the house that Don worked his whole life to give me, our children, and grandchildren. When i met Don 17 yrs ago, as a single mother of 3, he asked me what i wanted, i told him simply a place for our children to call home with a white picket fence. It took this beautiful, wonderful man who taught me what true unconditional love was 10 yrs to give our famiily a home, but he did (although the fence is brown, he used to hoke "do you want me to paint it white")

I want to save this house for many reasons, because Don worked so hared to give it to me, because it is the on "home" my children and grandchildren have ever know, but most of all because Don is here in all our memories, memories that we will never be able to make anywhere else because he is gone. This man was the love of my life and the one thing i learned from Don is that every conversation should end with i love you, and don't take tomorrow for granted. There are no guarantees that you will get a tomorrow.
