Recently a close friend Reece McKone passed away and we would like to raise funds to support his family in costs for the funeral. As some of you may know, Reece suffered from Epilepsy which he was managing both with medicine and with support from his friends and family. As the trigger for his fits was unknown the medicine he was given would help manage his condition but he was never able to avoid it. Despite this he was able to lead a happy, independent life, spending time with friends and family without worrying about his condition.
At 1AM on Saturday June 2nd, after playing on his Xbox with friends, he retired for the night to his bed where during the night, he passed away after having a seizure. he was found by his family on the following Sunday after they had become concerned that they had not heard from him after a day and he was rarely known to miss his Nana's Sunday dinner.
Reece Mckone an amazing friend to us all and a great guy he may have had epilepsy but that never stopped him he kept living life the way he wanted and nobody would want him any different now he's gone and we're left with all the amazing memories of his silly selfies with Alfie which he sent us all the time his hilarious attempts at Just Dance and his amazing way of making you feel better when you didn't even know you were really down we've opened this page here to help your family focus on you and themselves at this excruciating time we will all keep you forever in our hearts and help in all ways to lessen the burden and do it together for you, your family, and all of your friends we are raising this money for his funeral because he gave us the best of himself every day and he deserves the best from us all.
