Raistlin Ruther Memorial

My name is Carissa. I am so blessed to be this guy's aunt.  Raistlin passed January 2nd as he went missing in the bay that he loved to experience while kayaking. To lose someone like him is so difficult to accept. He was your gentle giant, an old man's soul. I always told him how much I admired his maturity, independence, and adventurous spirit. When Raistlin left us, a little piece of us all left with him.  I'm hoping to raise funds to contribute to his family's travel expenses, funeral services and an incredible scholarship to remember him and his love-life spirit.
