Merritt Family Travel Expenses

A tragedy has struck the small community of Cordova, and one of it's lifelong families. The Merritt's have suffered a terrible loss, and have much grieving ahead of them. They have a very large, closely knit family, that will support each other along the way, with the help of the wonderful support that Cordova is known for in a time of need. We are asking for donations to alleviate the burden of travel expenses, as there are many family members trying to get here to be together as a whole. The last thing they should need to worry about, is the burden of the expense of travel, or risking someone not being able to come due to financial hardships. Being such a large family, I am not sure what the campaign goal should be, so we will start with what I have here, and keep going if we should surpass it.   All funds from this campaign, will be transferred to Tracy Merritt, Rhett's aunt, who will be purchasing the travel for the family.  Please donate what you can, every little bit helps. If you can't donate monetarily, please share this campaign on your Facebook page. And prayers, prayers are ALWAYS welcome as well.
