UPDATE: Crash kills motorcyclist in Dubuque, family asking for prayers and help

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Sandra Kunde and her family are going through the most difficult time of their lives.

Her beloved husband, 34-year-old Keith Kunde, died Tuesday in a motorcycle accident in Dubuque County.

"The medical examiner came up to me with the police officer, and they advised me not to go see him the way he was. That, that wasn't the memory I wanted," Sandra said.

She not only lost the love of her life, but also the father of her four children, Braydon, 9, Quinton, 8, Skyelynn, 15 months, and Haydann, 4 months.

They will miss their father a lot. "His love, his kindness for us," said Braydon.

They can't imagine life without Keith, and admit the days ahead will be tough. They depended on him for everything because he was always there.  "He was the best father I've ever seen, with my children, very, very loving and he was my rock...my soul," Sandra said.

The family is leaning on one another for support. "We can make it through," Braydon said.

Keith also leaves behind a 13-year-old daughter named Tiawna. 

His funeral arrangements are being planned.

The family has created a gofundme campaign to help with expenses.

The Kunde home does not have a furnace for winter and needs new windows. Sandra's car also needs repairs.
