This site has been set up to raise funds for the daughter of my friends Ray & Terri Gross. Some of you are not acquainted with Ray and Terri, but they are lifelong friends of mine. Ray's family and mine have known one another since we were pre-school age, and he and his brothers and I went to school together for many years, grade school through high school. For those of you who do know Ray, you may not be aware that Ray suffered a serious stroke last year, and has since been gamely recovering, with the help and support of family and friends. Last Thursday, Ray and Terri's wonderful daughter Margie died suddenly during a severe epileptic seizure. Already burdened with large medical bills resulting from Ray's stroke and rehab, they are now facing an additional large expense for Margie's funeral and burial, and will need well over $6000 by next Thursday in order to be able to hold services at that time. A fund to help cover those expenses has been set up through Key Bank. You may contribute to the Margie L. Gross Estate, in Nampa Idaho at any Key bank Branch. If there are not any Key Bank branches in your area, please contribute what you are able through this site. Anything ANY of you can contribute, whether you know Ray and Terri or not, would be a huge blessing to them, and would mean the world to me. Any of you who know Ray and Terri will agree that nobody deserves our support more than they do at a time like this. They are both wonderful, warm, loving people, and are dealing with more than their share of pain and heartache right now. Helping one another at times like this is really what life is about, so please, be generous and compassionate, help as much as you can. Thanks in advance, both from myself, and from Ray & Terri.
