Arlene's Car Replacement Fund

Dear Family and Friends-

Arlene could use some help.

While driving to a Holiday brunch, she was rear-ended on the highway near San Clemente in what became a severe 5-car accident. Unable to get out of her vehicle, an emergency rescue team was called in to cut her out of her drivers seat. Her injuries are blessedly minor and she is recovering under the watch of her daughter Katrina at her home in Carlsbad. 

While we are so grateful that Arlene is recovering, we are looking for support to help get her a new vehicle. The car she has been driving for years has been in our family for decades. While it had tremendous sentimental value, insurance will not pay her anything for it being totaled. 

We are now in the process of helping her locate and purchase a safe, reliable used car to replace the one lost in the accident. If you are able and willing to contribute in any way, large or small, we would be most grateful.

Arlene has endured so much over the past years and it is our hope that helping to get her back on the road will enable her to continue working her two jobs and lift her spirits. Please consider donating to this fund and showing Arlene how much she matters to us.

with deep appreciation,
Kristina, Rebekah, Erich and Katrina (Arlene's children)
