Friday, July 20, 2012, 10:30am, we hit a goal of $40,000!
Hopefully, we'll finish strong at $50,000 by Sunday evening July 22, 2012. Thank you all for your help!
This page is set up to raise funds and ease the burden on Steve's wife, son, and step-daughter.
Steve was a devoted husband, loving father, a good friend, and beloved by everyone that had the chance to know him as a person. He left us all way too early and will be deeply missed.
We reached our first goal of $5000 in the first 8hrs. The goal was increased to $20,000 and we broke that in 22hrs!
A message form MJ Carlesi:
"There are no words to express my gratitude to everyone who has reached out to me to give their condolences. I have not gotten to the hundreds of emails, the 100 posts on my wall and the hundreds of posts on Steve C 's wall yet but I have been browsing over them until I am overtaken by tears.Thank you just doesn't seem like enough. It's been a rough 5 days but the support has been beyond amazing and I only wish Steve knew how many of you loved him before he left us.
I hope to be able to reply to each and everyone of you...but please be patient.
ALSO, I want to send a HUUUUUUGE thank you (again, not sufficient wording) to The Opie and Anthony Show on Sirius XM. Erik texted me what you guys have donated and I cannot stop bawling. I am beyond touched.
If anyone out there has appropriate wording that I can use to thank you all, please suggest it to me because you have all, for the first time in my life, left me speechless. While I am the saddest person in the world right now, I am also the most fortunate person in the world to have you all!"
