Help Joanna Truedsson Move Forward

On Saturday, January 20, Joanna Truedsson and her daughters Samantha Truedsson (Sam) and Amanda Denton lost their husband/father Gilbert N. Truedsson to a tragic accident while he went for a ride on his bike, the thing he loved to do most.

As a friend and member of Sam's team at work, I know just how close Sam was to both her mom and dad and how she often took those bike rides with her dad. I was deeply devastated to hear the news of the tragedy. My heart has been heavy since I heard the news and I thought to channel the sadness into something positive.

I wasn't sure if setting up this page was the right thing to do, but after discussing with some of her closest friends I decided to take a leap of faith. It comes from a good place. Having retired and aging parents myself who are also on a fixed income, in today's economy it hit close to home. I know all too well how financially difficult the simple day to day tasks are for our retired parents, let alone how burdensome things get when the unexpected happens.

To help ease the burden and to help Joanna carve a path forward, I ask for any donation you feel comfortable with. Let love shine. 

Thank you in advance for your love and compassion.
