WARREN BURR MEMORIAL/DESTINY TUITION

AS YOU KNOW, WE LOST OUR BELOVED WARREN BURR IN JULY OF THIS YEAR. WE HAVE BEEN ASKED BY SO MANY IF WARREN HAD FAVORITE PLACE HE WOULD WANT DONATIONS SENT IN HIS MEMORY. MANY PLACES CAME TO MIND, BUT HIS IMMEDIATE CONCERN WAS TO HELP HIS NIECE, DESTINY, GO TO COLLEGE. ON OUR RECENT VISITS TO CHICAGO THIS YEAR, THEY SPOKE ABOUT HER DESIRE TO GO TO SCHOOL. HE LOVED HER ENTHUSIASM AND MOTIVATION AS THEY SHARED A LOVE OF WRITING, LITERATURE AND POETRY AND TALKED ABOUT AUTHORS AND BOOKS. SHE HAS BEEN WORKING HARD AT HER JOB TO SAVE FOR TUITION AND BOOKS, HOWEVER THE FINANCIAL REALITY IS FAR OUT OF REACH FOR HER. HE COULD SEE HER DETERMINATION AND THURST TO LEARN, AND HE LOVED THAT ABOUT HER. WHEN WE RETURNED FROM OUR VISIT HE ASKED IF WE COULD TO TRY TO FIT HELPING HER FINANCIALLY INTO OUR BUDGET. SADLY, SHORTLY AFTERWARDS, HE WAS NO LONGER WITH US. ALL OF OUR FAMILY FELT THAT HE WOULD HAVE WANTED US TO CONTINUE TO HELP DESTINY RECEIVE THE EDUCATION SHE SO DESPERATELY WANTS, HE WANTED HER TO HAVE THAT CHANCE. SO, WE THOUGHT MAYBE WE CAN STILL HELP. FROM UNCLE WARREN, AUNT PATRICIA,COUSINS, NATHAN, AMY, AMANDA, ERIC, DAVE AND ALL OUR 7 GRANDCHILDREN, WE ASK YOU TO HELP US, TO HELP DESTINY, GO TO COLLEGE AND MAKE HER DREAMS COME TRUE, IN LOVING MEMORY OF HER UNCLE WARREN. WE WELCOME ANYTHING YOU CAN SHARE, NO MATTER HOW SMALL. WE OFFER OUR APPRECIATION AND GRATITUDE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
