Help bring Jim and Deb Baker Home

Donation protected
On September 11, 2017 our dear friends and neighbors Jim and Deb Baker were involved in a horrific car crash in Ireland, while on their dream vacation they had planned for many years. They were traveling with Jim's cousin Jack and his wife Peggy Sue to Blarney around 11 am when they were broadsided by a dump truck.
Jim and Peggy Sue were both instantly killed and Jack and Deb were taken to Cork hospital.  Thankfully, Jack was released today  but  Debbie underwent surgery to repair her broken bones. . Deb sustained a punctured lung, left elbow fracture, right clavicle fractue, rib fractures, and many bruises.

Jim and Deb are the most real and nicest people you will ever meet. They were never extravagant and valued family and friendship above all else.  We were all so excited for them to go on this trip of a lifetime. Sadly, in addition to dealing with grief and their world falling apart, the Bakers have some big obstacles to overcome in the near future. Deb and Jim did not take out travel insurance and thus will have large medical bills. Deb cannot fly for 6 weeks due to a punctured lung so the family may look into bringing her home by ferry. There is the additional cost of preparing Jim and transporting him home for a proper funeral and burial.

We all feel so helpless at a time like this and want to help the Baker family. First and foremost pray for all of them for physical and emotional healing and strength and courage during this difficult time. I feel the  next best thing we could do is assist them financially to help bring Jim and Debbie home.

If you can donate, please consider doing so in the very near future, so the Bakers can be asssited in this process.
God bless you all!
