Help for Herman Bertuso
Justin Barr started the campaign

My Grandfather-in-law is 84 years old. His wife of 63 years was laid to rest just over 2 weeks ago. He took time off from work as a handy man/contractor to take care of her for the past few years. When she finally lost her fight, he was eager to get back to work. Sunday (Feb. 24th) his work van, and all his tools inside, were stolen. He's a complete wreck. Here's a local news story about his situation.http://www.kmov.com/home/St-Louis-man-loses-van-thousands-of-dollars-of-tools-in-theft-193442471.htm...

Several people had asked how they could help and this was the best way I could think of. I know he will truly appreciate any help you all can give. Thank you so much.

Additionally, if you'd like to contribute in some other way feel free to contact me, Justin Barr, ([email protected]), Herman's grandson Jon Hendrickson ([email protected]) or the reporter for the news story, Matt Sczezny ([email protected]).

Just wanted to give an update. Herman has gotten several donations of tools. He has been in great spirits since everyone has started helping. As one more way of helping, Deaver's Restaurant and Sports Bar in Florissant, MO is hosting a fundraiser day for Herman, Monday March 18th. It will go all day and a percentage of all food sales will go to his tool recovery fund. We will also have a 50/50 raffle that evening. His grandson, Jon, and I plus other family members will be there Monday night. I'm hoping we can convince Herman to come up as well, though he usually goes to bed fairly early. Please come out, grab some dinner and help Herman!! Thank you all so much for your help.

There's been a break in the case!!! HIS VAN WAS FOUND AND IS BACK HOME!!!! Unfortunately, the van has been cleaned out and all of the tools are long gone. But the money raised so far will definitely help in replacing his tools. Thank you all so much!
