Ailia Hall & Heather Gillespie

Last weekend,  Doug Hall died in a single car accident while on his way home from work. He had been experiencing many health issues lately including heart problems, and it is believed that this led to him losing control of his vehicle. Doug leaves behind Heather, his partner of 13 years, and their young daughter, Ailia. Not only was Doug a a devoted father and partner,  he was the primary breadwinner of the family and even helped launch and support Heather's lifelong dream of owning her own salon, Shear Effects.  Before her salon business, Heather was a beloved teacher at Discovery Preschool.

We are asking for funds for Ailia's future and education, and help with immediate cost of living expenses as Heather and Ailia restructure their lives in the wake of this tragic loss. Please give what you can, and truly, no amount is too small.  Heather is a wonderful mother and truly the most kindhearted person you will ever meet.   We want to give Heather and Ailia all of the support we can during this difficult time.
