Christopher Gray Funeral Expenses

$10,245 of $10k goal

Erin McDermott  ANTIOCH, TN
As many of you know, Christopher Aaron Gray died tragically and suddenly, Wednesday morning outside of Nashville. Depression is not something we discuss openly enough in our society. It is a silent disease, that often times, is not made known until it's too late.

If you knew Chris, you knew he would be the first one to tell you to cheer up. If you knew Chris, you laughed a lot lol, lol, lol, lol. If you knew Chris, you  were very lucky.  Chris was not only a great human being, but incredibly talented and funny as hell. He would have given you the shirt off his back. Now let's do the same for him!! 

I was friends with Chris and played music with him over the years in Nashville. The money will be going directly to Rob Pearcy  (his roommate) and his grandmother, The funds will be directly withdrawn to Rob's account and given to his family for his funeral expenses.

Let's give Chris the most amazing Bluegrass send off and one he so clearly deserves!!

After speaking with Rob, we decided to raise a little more money to help offset any other unforseen expenses. I honestly can't believe the enormous support that this has received. His grandmother can't thank you all enough and is very thankful for the support. I can't thank you all enough. Please continue to share and contribute as you can.

We will also be sending out information this week regarding when and where the funeral will be taking place.

What a great community we have in Nashville. I'm so overwhelmed with the outpouring of support for Chris. I spoke with his grandmother last evening, and let her know we've raised almost half of the amount in just one day. I'm hopeful we can do the same today! Please share with anyone who knew Chris or anyone who understands what Chris was going through. Please reach out with any questions. Thank you all!! Xoxo
