Today is a very sad day in our community.  Our dear friend Joann Grasso and her three children suffered a devastating and tragic loss.  Joann's husband, Jeff  passed away early this morning, suddenly and unexpectedly.  Jeff was only 52 years old.  Joann is now faced with  raising her three children, Jeffrey 15, Jianna 13 and Justin, soon to be 9,  as a single mother.    Jianna is set to graduate 8th grade on June 21st!  

Anyone that knows Joann, knows that everything she does, she does with heart.  Besides working a full-time and a part-time job, she's involved in all school events, PTA's, committees in numerous schools, sports and fundraising.  Joann not only does it for her children, but for all the children in our community.

I myself cannot imagine what Joann and her children are going through.  I do however know the effect this will have on her, physically, emotionally and financially.

During this very difficult and sad time, I feel it would only be fair if our community, friends and family came together in an effort to help alleviate some of the financial strain Jeff's passing will have on Joann and her three young children.

Please, find it in your heart to donate to this fund.  Any amount helps.  There is no donation too big or too small.

Thanking you in advance on behalf of Joann Grasso and her three children.

Whether a monetary donation was made, or a dinner was delivered, or if you stopped in just to pay your respects, Joann is beyond grateful. When things settle down, I am certain she will reach out to all of you and express her sincere appreciation! This is the epitome of Paying it Forward!! You're all awesome!!!
