I am still trying to wrap my head around the reasoning behind why anyone, no matter how desperate they are, would do such a cruel, heartless, and senseless violent assault against someone, especially my dad who would go out of his way to help a complete stranger.
As the last couple weeks have unfolded, I trust in the fact that God is an all knowing God.
My Dad was brutally beat with an ax handle, robbed, and left for dead on Aug. 25th, at his small engine repair shop in Greenville, Ohio. He was Care flighted to Miami Valley in Dayton with bleeding on the brain, 2 deep lacerations in his head, multiple fractures to the left side of his face, the bones around his left eye were broken, a broken cheekbone and his jaw broken in two places. He underwent a 6 hour surgery and will have his jaw wired shut for 6 to 8 weeks and will have to be on a liquid diet during that time. (Dr's. say it may take up to a year to get feeling back in his jaw/chin). He will be facing many medical expenses from hospital bills, surgery, care flight, ICU, Emergency room, hospital stay, as well as medications and upcoming doctor visits. It may be awhile before he is able to be out in his shop working his daily job to provide income.
We know that he is loved by the Darke County Community and his long time customers and ask that those who want to help would consider donating toward his upcoming expenses. Please follow this link to donate:
Any donations received will go directly to Mr. Frick (my Dad) in the form of a check.
