Durkin Family Fund

Our friend John D. Durkin passed away on his 45th birthday, Saturday, August 12.  He leaves behind his wife, Christine, 14-year old John Murphy, and 10-year old Ryan.  

The situation is awful for the family, made worse by the extensive funeral expenses.  We would love to help Christine and the boys during this difficult time, and beyond.

Murph excels at everything he attempts and has been so strong for Christine.  Ryan is the sweetest boy who was very close to his daddy.  The future will be difficult enough for Christine; it would be wonderful if we could lighten her load, if only a little bit.

Christine is already grateful for all the support rallying behind her. Thank you for whatever donation you are comfortable making.
