By extension of my adoration for their mother (and by just being themselves), I adore her kids and I wish I could erase this pain for them. More than anything else, Charlie and Emily (yes, named for our grandparents) need our continued love and support not just now, but in the years to come. But they are also at financially strenuous times of starting an independent life for Charlie and completing college (and hopefully vet school) for Emily. My hope here is to raise enough money to provide a bit of a financial buffer for Charlie (he's had his sites on taking an internship to roll into a full-time position) and give Emily more financial resources to finish college. Both of them were looking towards Kerry for substantial help. It's a seemingly trivial difference... but a little less stress for both of the would be a good thing.
If you prefer to donate directly to Emily's 529 College fund and avoid the friction here, please email me and I will send you that information.
I will be splitting the funds between these two amazing young adults who have had the trial of their lives - and amazed us all.
And please continue to support them in even more important ways... with your love and time!
