I wanted to apologize as well, being snowed in today I have found out that many of you have emailed me through this link and they were sent to my spam mail. I'm not sure why, but Ido apologize and I wasn't intentionally ignoring you you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
The donations you all have generously donated on here are not going to Dean Bank, instead these funds are available for the munroes to use when they need them at their own discretion.....
I have been asked about the donation amount being at 36000. And then back to 26000? (Around that), I have posted the reason for this, but to let everyone feel safer with donations I just want to clear it up again.....
Go fund me deals with all the credit transactions and monitors all donations and donors. I received a few emails stating that a few donations to talking I think about 11000 all from the same donor who used a series of numbers and letters as their name. Go fund me considered this suspicious and pulled the donations until they investigated it further, a couple smaller amounts from this donor still stand as far as I know. Hope that helps!
Thank you all again

Thank you all from my heart!
We tried to leave another donation as Sean's 10th Birthday is approaching but it was turned away for some reason..? Not declined, just something not working with the campaign, a possible glitch, just an FYI. We're always with you both and the girls and support the scholarship annually but more importantly we want to keep sharing and reminding people of the dangers of these hope chests that we STILL see for sale on Craig's list and now in the "Face Book Market" daily. If we can help one family, one child, Sean and Lexi will live on in those children and families.. We love you guys, and will be seeing you soon. Anything you need always, Michelle and Rob xoxoxo
I am a friend of Gillian's from Home Depot. I am so sorry for her family's loss. She is an amazing person, a loving and devoted mother and wife. She talks about her family so much I feel like I know them all. She glows when she talks about her kids. GOD Bless you and your family. You are loved...
I am so sorry for this family's loss. .my thoughts & prayers go out to you all God bless xo
Just wanted to stop in and once again thank all of you for your kind words and donations! Everyone has come together near and far! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Dawn
So very sorry for you loss. The loss of one child is very hard but losing two off them young or old is unthinkable we are not all from Mass. but we do fell your pain. I lost a daughter a year ago and I understand how terribly hard this is for your family our hearts and prayers are with the Munroe family at this very difficult time. I am glad so many people care enough to help whatever the donation knowing some members of this family I know they appreciate all you have done and are doing for them I am so very sorry Sean and Gillian for your loss.
My daughter Laci started Davis Thayer this year in 3rd grade. She and Lexi became great friends right away. Telling me everyday how smart she is and how beautiful her smile is. We are so sorry for your loss and continue to pray for your family. God Bless each and every one of you.
My daughter is in First grade at Davis Thayer and Knew Sean Very well as they were in kindergarten last year together as well, My heart is heavy at this time for the loss of Sean and Lexi and our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this trying time and forward May God Bless You all and keep your angels under his wing.
I have four sons in the Franklin schools. They know all of the Munroe children. One of my sons is in the second grade at DT. Though I have never met their parents, I just want them to know the phrase "Boston Strong" we are Franklin Strong! I could not be any prouder of this community but I also would not expect anything less.
It's amazing the love and support that the community of Franklin is showing.. An amazing family.. In our thoughts and prayers
There are more good people than we will ever know. So many hearts are broken.
It is absolutely amazing what this community has done for Sean and his Family...God bless!
There are no concerns regarding the IRS. Each person can receive up to $13,000 per person and a married couple counts as two = $26,000 plus the three children. Its all considered "gift " money.
God Bless,The Family Such A Tragedy. The 2 Children Are Now Angels Of God. RIP Babies!
It is absolutely amazing how everyone has come together as a community & said prayers & donated to Sean & his family in their time of need. Thank you so much!! May god be with them right now & always.. And may god wrap his arms around these 2 little babies & give them their wings...
My thoughts are with all the family, such a tragedy x
This is the saddest story that I have ever heard. It really hits home to me. I have a 3yr. old and a 7yr. old and they play inside our toy box's all the time. They empty them and they climb in. I never thought anything of it until now. I hope this family stays strong and I will pray that they do.
Hi Chris, this website has a forum that touches on that subject... Although this and Dean Bank are two different funds they may be able to offer some insight too...I can also speak with my accountant.... Donations on here are considered gifts though of that helps?? If you get any info your way feel free to messages privately and we can double check everything! Thank you So much :-)
Hi Dawn, Given that the donations have poured in, it may not be a bad idea for someone to consult with an accountant or tax person unless Dean Bank is doing this already. Hate to bring that up given the situation, but neither does anyone want to have to deal with the IRS over this... Peace and strength to Gillian and Sean, as well as families on both sides.
I lost my grandson 6mo ago there are no words to what you all must feel all I can say is I am praying for you all.
I am so very sorry for loss !!! My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of great sorrow !!!! RIP little angels !!!!
