As some of you may know my beautiful daughter, Rachel, died Monday, February 27. Her husband, Todd Winkler, is being held in connection with her death. The Eldorado County Court has given me guardianship of the three children Eva 4, Ariel 2, and Alex 9 months. They will live with me in Napa, California.
There has been a tremendous outpouring of love and sympathy. I have a team of friends and family currently looking for a large house where I can paint and raise the children with the help of a nanny. A children’s fund has been established in Rachel’s name to receive monetary gifts. The following information will guide those of you who want to contribute. Thank you and God bless you. Rachel now joins my beautiful wife, Janey, who left us January 21 of this year. I am comforted by the love of God who grants me knowledge that the two women who meant the most to me are safe and beautiful in His presence. We will join them someday in that home prepared for us where there will be no more tears and where we will never loose those we love again. Don Hatfield
