Help Toni with the sudden loss of Ford White

With the sudden passing of Ford his family is devastated as are many in the gymnastics community.  Toni has lost the man that was her best friend and life partner in every way, it is hard to imagine them as anything but a pair.  

In this difficult time Toni could really use some support.  Ford and Toni always loved coaching and gave their athletes more then just gymnastics skills, life skills that would build the whole child were always at the forefront of coaching.   I have talked to so many people that say Ford was like a second Dad, he certainly was to me. It would be wonderful if the community they supported for so many years could now give a little to help Toni through these tough times.  

Covid-19  closures last Spring and Summer caused a financial strain for many of us.  On top of that, Toni and Ford were out of regular work for the past few months.  If you can give anything to help with the cost of funeral services, immediate living expenses and a celebration of life (at a later date) all donations would be greatly appreciated.  

With the passing of Ford the world has lost a light but he gave so much to so many that the world is a better place because of him.
