Helping Bruce and Family

This weekend, our dear friend Bruce van derRiet lost both his parents, and his childhood home, in horrific wildfires that have been raging in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Bruce, Meagan, and Mac have all flown to South Africa to mourn his loss with his family.  Of course, flights booked for travel on such short notice are terribly expensive.
Bruce and Meagan are dear friends who would do pretty much anything for anyone, and while there is little we can do to heal the unspeakable grief that they are feeling at this time, we can let the VdR family know we are thinking of them by helping offset their travel expenses, and hopefully relieving a small amount of stress during the time of this most devasting loss.
