Sadly, Brother Shuster’s death was the second major tragedy to impact his family in recent months. “Two months ago, Brother Lou had lost his brother, and now his parents will be burying their second child in three months, and this is an unfortunate expense nobody wants,” wrote GoFundMe organizer and BLET Division 607 member Alan Thompson.
