Support the Gillow family

On Sunday, 7/01, the Gillow family gathered to celebrate one of the happiest occasions—a wedding within their family. They were able to share love, food, sunshine, and good times—something their family is known for. 

The morning of 7/02, tragedy struck as Jennifer Gillow was taken from her mortal life. The family is now faced with many financial burdens at the most inconvenient time. 

If you’re lucky enough to know a Gillow, you know that their family is the kind that would gladly remove their shirt just to ensure you had one. The Gillows are the kind of family to welcome you in, feed you, and give you shelter—even if you’re a stranger, because they don’t see a stranger, they see a future friend.  The Gillows are made from a hearty stock, with the salt of the earth in their veins. While tragedy is no stranger to their family, as they’ve suffered many losses over the years—you’d never know it when speaking with them. Not only are the Gillows a resilient family, but they’re also a happy one. No matter what happens in life—they’re happy go lucky, smiling broadly, and ready to take on whatever life has to throw at them.

Aye, again, if you’re lucky enough to know a Gillow—you’re blessed to have a fiercely loyal, devout, and tried & true friend. In this time of need, let’s band together and support our loyal friend and his family. A family whose brand is relentless optimism deserves all the help in the world, so let’s gather here to support a family that has lost a daughter, a sister, and a mother.
