Love & Support for Marjie

Dear friends of Marjie - you may know that Hugo's body finally  succumbed to ALS on June 1 - at home with his family by his side.  Two weeks later Marjie's daugher, Jennifer, was struck and killed by a truck in a school crosswalk as she was picking up her two young children. 

As you can imagine, Marjie is overwhelmed and in a state of shock as she tries to manage all that is involved in the deaths of two dear loved ones. 

Let's set up a pot of funds for her to easily and quickly access for expenses related to Hugo's Memorial Service (she expects around 200 people to attend), as well as hosting and feeding  (and wine-ing!) all the friends and family that drop by, and those who are coming to town regarding both deaths.

If you have any questions, please direct them to me.   Thanks.

GoFundMe has asked me to provide these details:
1. Who you are - Marjie's neighbor
2. Where you're from - San Diego
3. Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for - Neighbor
4. How the funds will be used (be specific as possible) - to cover expenses related to the passing of her husband and her daughter
5. If you intend to withdraw the money, how you plan to send the funds to the parties you're raising money for or use the money on their behalf - the check will come to me.  I will endorse it and take it to Marjie.
