My name is Max Gibson. Claire Beaty and I have been together for 3 years now.
Over Memorial Day weekend Claire and her sister, Jessie, lost their mother, Diana, unexpectedly from what we believe to be a heart attack. For those that don't know, their father, David, also unexpectedly passed away 3 years ago. This leaves both of them without any parents to turn to.
Diana was one of the nicest and most caring people I've ever had the pleasure of being around. According to Claire, "she was the glue that held together the whole family," and it showed through her actions. Needless to say, this loss has caused an extremely emotional struggle, as well as a financial one. Claire goes to CSU East Bay and Jessie lived with their mother in Novato. Their mother payed for the vast majority of things like helping with tuition, rent, car insurance, phone bills, food, and so much more. With both parents gone, and their main support system no longer there, Claire and Jessie are at a huge loss.
Any donations would go towards funds for the cremation and service, helping Claire finish college at CSU East Bay, and to help Jessie get situated in a new living space. Nothing will replace Diana's love and support but your guy's help, no matter how small, will go a long way in helping Claire and Jessie through this incredibly tough time.
I urge those that are good friends with Claire to share this on your own Facebook page because I'm sure I'm not friends with all of her friends here on Facebook and I would like to spread the message to as many people as possible.
Thank you all!
