Loving Father & Husband Gone Too Soon

Imagine falling asleep on a Friday night, life is normal, your husband is out with friends. He calls you to tell you he's on the way home & you fall asleep not realizing it's the last time you will ever speak to him. Next thing you know, you get a knock on your door...you open it...it's the police & your whole world is rocked. This is what happened to one of my best friends - Natalie. Her husband - Ray - senselessly killed in an accident with drunk driver who was driving on the wrong side of the road. He was 33. 

My husband and I have been good friends of the family back to our college days at George Mason University & remain close to them today. Ray was a loving husband, father (to two young kids), son & brother. This is unfair and so devastating to his family. Please help our friends - all funds will be given to Natalie to go towards funeral arrangements & to help Natalie + the kids with financial transition costs following Ray's untimely passing. Whatever you can do will help.

NOTE: I have received Natalie's blessing to begin this fundraiser. Please continue to pray for the family & feel free to share the link with anyone you know that may wish to contribute.

UPDATE: Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Evangel Cathedral Bishop’s Chapel, 13903 Central Avenue, Upper Marlboro, Md., 20774 with burial at Harmony Cemetery. Viewing will be from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m.
