The Thorman Family

Dear Friends:

As you know, Kelly Garrett Thorman's husband, Robert, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, March 8.  He was 49 years young.  

Although Robert was proud of his public service in the United States Senate, Corporation for National and Community Service, and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, his most important and certainly his favorite job was being a father. That’s why we started this GoFundMe honor Robert’s memory, and to ensure that Kelly can fulfill the intentions she and Robert shared for their three beautiful children: Carter, William and Charlotte.

Thank you, in advance, for considering making a contribution. And please continue to keep Robert, Kelly, Carter, Charlotte and William in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
