Many people ask me if Dolly and the family are okay. I suppose that depends on your definition of the word, "okay." They are still struggling to come to grips with Scott being gone. And yes, they are still struggling with the money situation. Dolly works full time and is trying to support three teenagers....
If you find that you can donate again, as my mother Julia used to say: "Like chicken soup, it couldn't hurt!"
Scott Boliver was an incredibly effective charity marathon running coach. He was a wonderful father to three children, husband to his beautiful wife Dolly, and a psychologist who never stopped giving to his patients, family, and runners.
Please try to remember how much Scott has affected your life, your performance, your dreams, your goals, and your achievements.
It meant much more than money to you. However, at this time it's money that is needed. Would you be able to give $10? $50? $100?
Scott always put up such a strong front that everything was fine. In fact, the family does not have the money to pay for the funeral services, let alone the next few months of rent or food for the kids. I know Scott is cringing at me telling you this, but now Dolly and the kids need you. We have raised over $50,000 in one week, and that shows how much Scott was loved and appreciated. Can we do more? Of course we can! What mile did Scott push you to in your running? The tenth? The fifteenth? The twentieth? The TWENTY-SIXTH? Did you cross the finish line in a marathon because of Scott? Multiply those miles by 10 or 20 or 100 and we'll help ease the pain for Dolly and the kids.
Do it for Scott.
Do it for Dolly and the family.
Most of all, do it for what Scott has done for YOU and YOUR LIFE.
With much love and appreciation,
Larry Jacobson, Dolly's brother
Thank you to everyone who attended Scott's funeral services. Over 400 people attended the beautiful services at Temple Beth Tikvah in Fullerton where there was standing room only! Scott would have been so pleased.
Everything has been said so eloquently before. Scott helped me achieve what I thought was impossible, and multiple times. Truly inspirational and gave so much to so many, always with a smile. What a mensch.
