DR Butler Children's Memorial Fund

My dearest Teacher and Friend D.R. (Ram) Butler passed away this week. As a parent, I've thought of his children a lot. They are young adults supporting themselves as they find their way in the world. I had parents to fall back on if I hit a snag at their age. This is a snag, with unexpected expenses and time spent out of work to deal with everything that surrounds this type of event. On top of that, this is the second parent they have lost within the span of a few years and they do not have another to fall back on during this time. 

I wanted to offer a gift to help them with any legal, travel,  and personal expenses that present themselves during this time. When I expressed this to a handful of friends, they wanted to gift the kids too...which gave birth to the idea of this GoFundMe page, and reaching out a little further. I would love my friends support on this. I would not be the person I am today if it was not for Ram.
