Four benefits planned to grow Griffin Engelkes Memorial Fund. The goal is to raise $30,000 for a Strider Bike Park in Little Rock, Iowa in memory of the four-year-old boy who died in a tragic farm accident.

Six weeks have passed since 4-year-old Griffin Engelkes died as the result of a farming accident. His family is both appreciative and overwhelmed by the outpouring of support — the kind words, the hugs, the memorials — from friends and family across northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota.

They know their little boy is in heaven, and when the question of why starts to creep into their minds, they find reassurance from Griffy’s older brother, Gibson, 5.

“It’s very easy for him. For children, it’s black and white,” said mom Hannah. “His brother passed away, there’s a heaven and he’s there.”

One day, Gibson announced that Griffy was eating mac-n-cheese in heaven; another day, he proclaimed that Griffy was riding bike all day.
