Amber Smith Family Fund

My name is Josh Crandall.  I am a close family friend of the Smith's from Higginsville MO.  If you are from the Higginsville area, you likely know the story, but I will tell it again here for those of you who don't.  Amber Smith. age 35 passed away suddenly yesterday in Higginsville MO leaving behind 4 young girls.  As her family grieves this sudden hole that has been torn into the fabric of their lives, all of us who know the family are left sitting on the sidelines, grieving silently for them and the unimagineable sorrow that they are now coping with. 

Often, and especially in this particular situation, the most appropriate way to show your love of the family and your understanding of the tough circumstances that lie ahead is through a financial gift.  However, there hasn't always been a good way to do this.  Now there is.....

I am setting up this donation page to raise money to help out in any way possible, the Smith family of Higginsville Mo.  Between flights home from Japan to Future College plans, this is a fantastic opportunity to show your support of this family with a donation that will aid in getting them through this most trying time.  The "GoFundMe" site is extremely respected and safe, so please give generously.  No amount is too small or large.  Let's see what we can do as a community for the family.
