The love and support shown during this difficult time has been tremendous. Friends and family have generously provided food and monetary support along the way. For those who have asked how they can help, we have created this GoFundMe. All funds go directly to help support the Duran family’s immediate needs as follows:
Both Ray and Susie continued working even after retirement and counted on this money to pay bills, cover everyday expenses, and still live life together comfortably. Because Ray was incapacitated, Susie stayed with Ray in the hospital each and every day during this time, the supplemental income they count on is not available this month, and finances are strained. Susie was expected to return to work and resume teaching in August, which has not been able to happen.
Due to the unexpected medical complications that preceded Ray’s death, the coroner will be performing an autopsy and investigation, the cost of which must be paid by the family.
Final arrangements are being made, and we anticipate having a church service and celebration of life. These expenses will also be paid for by the family.
So, if you are looking for a way to make a meaningful impact during these difficult times, a donation via GoFundMe or a check made payable to Susie will go a long way in helping bridge the gap that has been created by the circumstances above. If you’re not able to contribute monetarily, please continue showing support in any way you can, even with simple words of encouragement. And thank you to those who have already donated money to Susie or the kids directly.
