Gene and Kathi Sandburg's son, Brendan, was a Navy medic who deployed several times risking his life to fix broken Marines. Brendan loved his career in the military and served with honor and devotion. He was killed August 16, 2008 when his helicopter tragically crashed into a valley during a training exercise. Gene and Kathi were paralyzed by grief and lost their business and home in the months following the death of their son.
The House That Love Built is YOUR opportunity to restore Gene and Kathi to owning a piece of the country their son died for! Gene is a Vietnam Veteran and he and Kathi have since opened their own cottage business selling delicious candied nuts at various local fairs, shows, and outdoor events. Be a part of this amazing endeavor to give back to this family that has endured impossible grief! Let's restore Gene and Kathi to homeownership and show them that America is a grateful nation for their sacrifice!
Pictured below is the last house we purchased for a Gold Star Family.
