In 1982, Hurveal, 61, fell out of a helicopter and broke his back during an Army training exercise in Hawaii. Hurveal served eight years in the Army before the incident left him permanently disabled.
But Hurveal’s disability and limited income doesn’t stop him from opening his home and heart to others. Having raised four children who are now grown, he just adopted two children, 8 and 10, after the siblings’ 42-year-old mother died in November 2018. His 31-year-old daughter and his 9-year-old granddaughter also live with him.
Hurveal said he lost his dear friend a day after her birthday on Nov. 5. Hurveal was the childrens’ godfather and took care of them for 1 1/2 years after their mother went through difficult times.
“She got them back for five months, and she fell into trouble and passed away,” Hurveal said.
Hurveal needed clothing and furniture assistance from The Mustard Seed for the children in his care.
“I did have some furniture but not all that I need to make the kids comfortable and feel like it’s their home,” he said. “This furniture will help my kids and I feel more comfortable. This service is a great blessing to us and all those helped.”
