Gunny Vasquez's Bereavement Fund

Dear Community,

It is with great sadness that we regret to inform you of the passing of Gunnery Seargent  "Gunny" Jay Vasquez's mother, Mrs. Edna D. Dewitt.

As an expression of sympathy we are setting up a contribution fund to help raise money to help Gunny and his family with memorial services and funeral expenses.

Gunny has had such a positive impact on the Embassy and has touched so many of us with his kindess and generosity, it only seems appropriate to return the sentiment. 

Please consider helping our Gunny and his family through the most difficult of times.

Thank you for your consideration and please know that your generosity is sincerely appretiated.
