This is a link to the tragic news story.
Good morning everyone. $33,616 dollars is unbelievable and that's all I'll say about that.
As for tomorrow, 10 AM graveside at Forest Lawn in Ruston, it's appreciated if that is just family and friends. Please no general public.
1 PM will be the public service at Trinity Methodist to which everyone is welcome.
After the services, the family will need private time together at a separate location. This is why I am opening my home to family, friends, and extended circle of friends (if you know Ari at all, you are welcome, doesn't matter if you know me) for food and visitation time for all of the people who have traveled in from so far. We have already arranged for ice, plates, cups, cutlery and folding tables. If anyone could get their hands on some folding chairs or tailgate chairs and help bring them that would be phenomenal. There is plenty of room in the house and yards, but seating is limited at this time, so anything helps. Also I have a few guys getting together large food trays of Cane's chicken. Any other drinks, 2 liters, side dishes (store bought or prepared are more than fine) and main dishes like meat or chicken items like casseroles would be greatly appreciated to be brought by today or tomorrow. I know I am asking a lot, but we are expecting a large turnout and myself and a few friends are paying for all of this ourselves. No money from the funeral fund will be touched for this, you have my word. The family will be coming by to visit at this event after they have had some time to themselves.
My address is 1209 Dubach Avenue, Ruston, LA, 71270.(Easy to find on Google maps) It is right off of Tech Drive in Ruston. Very easy to find, left side of the street. There is a large gravel lot at the beginning of the street for parking when my driveway (I have 9 people in town staying at my house) and street side are filled. Please message me via Facebook or text with any questions.
Thank you all. We hope to see you tomorrow.
I appreciate the overwhelming support and so does Ari! Keep up the great work guys!
Name a better group of friends, you can't!
