Sisters Hold Fundraiser To Honor Brother Who Died Of A Heart Attack At 29

August 29, 2019 0 By Bertrand Dibbert


FESTIVAL THAT STARTS ON FRIDAY AND RUNS THROUGH SUNDAY. TWO SISTERS ARE COMING TOGETHER AFTER LOSING THEIR BROTHER TO A HEART ATTACK. RUDY DIED AT AGE 29 JUST TWO MONTHS AFTER BEING MARRIED. NOW HIS SISTERS ARE USING THEIR NEW BUSINESS TO HELP THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION. WE’RE LIVE TONIGHT AT THE DEEP ROOTS WINERY AND BISTRO IN DENVER. OBVIOUSLY THE CAUSE DOES MEAN A LOT TO THESE WOMEN. Reporter: ABSOLUTELY. RUDY WOULD HAVE BEEN 34 NEXT WEDNESDAY WHEN THEY’RE GOING TO BE HOLDING THIS EVENT. THEY SAID INSTEAD OF STAYING AT HOME AND FEELING SAD THEY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING HE WOULD ENJOY WHICH IS TO GET OUT, SOCIALIZE, HAVE FUN, AND RAISE MONEY FOR A GOOD CAUSE. RUDY WAS THAT PERSONALITY THAT WAS BIGGER THAN LIFE. RUDY WAS A 29-YEAR-OLD WITH AN UNCONQUERABLE SPIRIT. YOU COULDN’T TELL HIM HE COULDN’T DO SOMETHING. HE WAS LIKE OH YEAH I’M GOING TO DO IT ANYWAYS. DETERMINATION AND A BIG HEART. HE’S THE MOST LOVING PERSON THAT I KNOW. HE TRULY HELD OUR FAMILY TOGETHER FOR THE LONGEST TIME. THE TRIO HAD A DREAM TO ONE DAY OPEN A RESTAURANT. IT WAS GOING TO BE OUR PLACE AND NO ONE COULD TELL US WHAT TO DO. THAT’S THE DREAM OF ALL SIBLINGS IS YOU HAVE TO PULL IT TOGETHER AND NO ONE COULD TELL YOU WHAT TO DO BECAUSE IT WAS YOURS. IN JULY 2014 RUDY SUFFERED A HEART ATTACK. I WAS STATIONED DOWN IN VIRGINIA AT THE TIME WHEN I GOT THE FIRST PHONE CALL FROM MY MOM LETTING ME KNOW THAT MY BROTHER HAD HAD A HEART ATTACK IN HIS SLEEP. A GENETIC ANOMALY GAVE THIS YOUNG MAN THE HEART OF AN 85-YEAR-OLD MAN. WE FOUND OUT WE HAD A SIGNIFICANT FAMILY HISTORY OF HEART DISEASE ON MY MOTHER’S SIDE THAT OUR FAMILY JUST NEVER TALKED ABOUT. A YEAR AGO THE SISTERS OPENED THE WINERY AND BISTRO. THIS IS THE BEST PART OF OUR JOB. ALTHOUGH THEY MISS HIM EVERYDAY THEY STILL FEEL HIS PRESENCE. HE’S NEVER REALLY LEFT ME. HE’S BEEN BY MY SIDE. AND HE WOULD SAY HE’S PROUD OF ME. PROUD OF US. TICKETS TO THE EVENT ARE ABOUT $100 EACH, OR EXACTLY $100 EACH I SHOULD SAY. THAT WILL GET YOU TWO HOURS OF UNLIMITED WINE TASTINGS. THEY HOPE TO TAKE $10,000 FROM
