PHOTO SHOW on August 10, 2013 at the BlueBird Cafe, 730 Grand Avenue, 1pm to 3pm! I'm showing and selling some of the photos I've taken over the years. Or, donate through this site, or by sending checks to ANB Bank, 2426 Grand Avenue, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601 to the Gay E. Moore Expenses Fund. I appreciate all your help and support for me and my family!

I would like to thank the people who have so generously given to me in my time of need. Thanks to you I've been able to make a payment on one of the credit cards I'd been using and bring the payment amount down to a more manageable level. I will put the rest in the bank for now, in anticipation of the trial and the time I'll be gone from work. I'll keep you posted as time goes by. I'm also adding my favorite photo of Jessica, taken by me on Memorial Day 2011, when we were all at her great-grandmother's house. I don't mind if you want to use this photo in your own media but please be sure and credit me for the copyright.

I'm one of Jessica Ridgeway's great aunts. I live 170 miles away, and I've been traveling to Denver over the last six months to support my family. Although a lot of people donated generously to the Ridgeway family when Jessica was kidnapped and found murdered, the account was closed in January, 2013, and the Ridgeway family, my sister and niece, donated the money to the foundation that was set up. I'm happy they donated the rest of their money to the foundation but I'm in a financial bind. I'm not recognized by the law to be "family" even though I'm Jessica's grandmother Christine's sister, so the Victim's Assistance fund can't refund any of my travel expenses or lost wages. I've been traveling back and forth to Westminster to support my family and attend court hearings for the murderer with my sister Christine and my niece Sarah. There are still hearings and a 2 1/2 week trial, which I will be attending. I've already lost several days' pay at work, although my boss has paid for my wages in October 2012 when I went to Denver to support my family and offer whatever help I could, when Jessica went missing and was ultimately found murdered. My husband has paid for gas, we've stayed in hotel rooms several times, and I still have expenses coming in the fall. I will use any funds for the purpose of travel to and from Westminster CO and the court in Golden CO, as well as the wages I'll lose while I attend the trial. I really appreciate any help you can give.

Gay Magnuson Moore is one of my dear friends. We were college room mates at UNC and have managed to stay in touch through our lives. We live just 20 miles apart even today. I received this face book page and was devastated upon reading about Jessica Ridgeway, and to realize she had been Gay's great niece. Please go to the site and see if you may be able to help their family. I do remember the news regarding Jessica when her life was taken so violently. They have her murderer in custody awaiting trial scheduled for fall of this year.
