The Rand family

The Rand family suffered an unimaginable loss on the night of Feb 24 when a care flight plane went down during a snowstorm.
All 5 of the passengers died in the crash, including Mark (Bear) Rand and his wife, Terri.
Mark was on his way to receive life saving medical treatment in Utah. What was supposed to be a saving grace, ended in tragedy for the Rand family and the families of the crew and first responders on board.
Mark and Terri were big hearted, family oriented, proud parents and grandparents. The Rand family is now coming together to figure out how to move forward.
Family members are traveling to Reno from Elko and Hawaii, and will need help with these unexpected expenses as well as laying 2 beloved family members to rest. Let’s come together and support them in this time. If they are not worried about bills, work and cost then they can work on healing and giving Bear and Terri the goodbye they deserve.
