Rui Gameiro Memorial Fund

On Sunday, November 10th,  Springs resident, Rui Pedro Gameiro passed away unexpectedly.   Left behind to pick up the pieces of their lives are his wife, Paola Polanyi and their  daughters Beata  & Grace.   Beata is an  honor student at Lyman High School  and Grace is a tenacious preschooler at Primrose School.    Rui's death  was the last thing the family was prepared for emotionally or financially.    Paola and the children are now struggling to comprehend this senseless loss , a week before Thanksgiving and a few weeks before Christmas.   Instead of planning for the Holidays, they are now planning a funeral and a future without their beloved husband and father. 
     Taking part of  the financial burden that has now been laid at their feet off their plate, would be a tremendous gift we as neighbors, friends,  and family can do for them.  It is the greatest help  we can provide to Paola, Beata & Grace.   Their lives have been forever changed and I would like to show them kindness and compassion can light the way through the dark journey they have just begun to walk.
