    Fellow hamber on here a dear friend Billy crewl aka Hellmet has lost his wife. Two days ago. You may know him for building the Jack Calori roadster tribute. He has 3 small children an adult son and grandbaby. He works 6 days and week and does side work to support his family. I can only imagine his pain. I know it will be difficult to handle the expenses and raise 3 kids on his own. If anyone can spare anything it would be greatly appreciated. The gofund me was set up by her family and I'm just trying to spred the work. Merry Christmas and God bless. Josh

    Yes, losing a loved one during the Holiday Season will affect a person drastically, especially a child.

    Hey guys. Anything helps. Not much from here hitting the GoFundMe yet.

    Hellmet had been posting his Jack Calori lakes racer roadster build for years, here on the HAMB. He's one of the good guys, just like you, building his dream, supported by his wife and family. You'll see them with many of his posts.

    Whatever you do, think about yourself, in the same situation. What is your family worth ? Again, anything helps.

    God bless him.


    .... just a splinter of Billy's posts here >>>>

    So sorry for your loss my thoughts and prayers go out to you?
    I know fron experience next Christmas is going to be the worst and ruffest on everyone. What I did when I lost my daughter knowing Xmas was going to be bad on wife and son. I did everything to make it the best Christmas for them and every year it got betterbecause I raised the benchmark of Christmas.
    Remember you get thru this one day at a time.
    Remember that you did everything possible with the information you had at that time, the what if's will come but remember that your decisions were made with the BEST INFORMATION YOU HAD AT THE TIME second guessing it or rethinking it will only get you down. P.M. Me if you need. Frank

    As many have said, words are hard to come by at times like this. A small gift has been sent; glad to do what I can to reach out to the family. RIP Stephanie Crewl.
