#Love for Paula. Racheal's Trust

On August 27, 2017, Paula Ryan (nee Vivian, age 35) died suddenly in a motor vehicle collision along with her young son, Mikey (age 11), and husband, Mike (age 41). They leave behind a beautiful daughter/sister, Rachael (age 13). Our hearts are broken by the tragedy Rachael is facing.

Paula was our classmate - a member of the Clarenville High School graduating class of 2000. We are saddened by the loss of Paula, who we remember as a beautiful person with a bright smile and an infectious laugh. In her memory, and as a gift to her young daughter, we have established a trust fund for Rachael. Monies will be held in trust until Rachael reaches the age of maturity, and given to her as a gift from her mom's graduating class.

After a tragedy such as this, love and kindness is our only answer. Please join with us in showing #loveforpaula by contributing to Rachael's trust fund.

With Love & Kindness,

Clarenville High School Class of 2000

Just an update for all on this campaign as we prepare to close this out.

First of all on behalf of the Class of 2000 we would like to sincerely thank those who donated to this worthy cause.  All funds collected as part of this Go Fund Me account are currently being transferred in the trust fund account(Trust for Rachael) that was set up by Brian Belbin and Karla Rothnie( friends and classmates of Paula Ryan).  This account is a deposit only account that will be held in trust to be gifted to Rachael in full from Paula's class of 2000 when she reaches the age of Maturity.
