Hi Everyone,
As you may or may not know we lost our close friend, Euel Desta, last week. Euel, born in Ethiopia, came to the United States with his grandma about ten years ago. He passed away at Greenlake on Thursday, August 7th 2014 at the age of 21. Euel was extremely hard working and ambitious. He always kept a smile on his face that brightened the days of anyone around him. We are trying to raise money to help his grandma fund his funeral. We really want to help her because he was the only family member she had here in the U.S. The rest of his family is still back home in Ethiopia. We would really appreciate your donation and just remember no amount is too small. She hasn't decided on a particular date or place for the funeral due to financial reasons. If you have any questions feel free to contact me on my cell (206)446-7074. Thank you!
(This is created by Amina Shah, a close friend of Euel).
