Benefit for Sade's Family

We are raising funds to benefit Sade Raffenbeul and her family in memory of Sade's son, Samuel Raffenbeul.  Samuel passed away unexpectedly on January 1st, 2021. 

He was 16 years old and being autistic he had many struggles, but he never let anything get him down.  He was always happy and brought so much joy to all who knew him through all things like his puppet shows.  In his giving spirit, his brain has been donated to AutismBrainNet, an organization that's sole purpose is understanding the biological causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

Friends and coworkers are welcome to donate any amount to help the family offset funeral costs and expenses.  Your donations are greatly appreciated.
