Help me help Grayson as he abruptly faces his life without his mom.   Ellen passed away suddenly this past weekend.  Having survived the loss of his father just a couple of years ago, he now faces the loss of his mother at the young age of just turning 21.  

He was a good son.   I hope by this gesture of go fund me it's something that is comforting as he faces his unforeseen future.

I am honored to be a part of this and so very thankful that Grayson continues to receive donations. After the lovely memorial for Ellen this past Saturday there were some questions as to if and how long the fund will remain open. It can remain open indefinitely. I wanted to put that out there so anyone interested can still make a donation. Again, thank you helping this wonderful young man.

Ellen helped me dream big and have the courage to soar. What a magical mother you had/have, Grayson (I'm sure she's still near) -- I'm so sorry for your loss.

My son who will turn 21 in just a few months lost his dad right after he turned 13 (as I know you lost your dad ) and I can't even begin to imagine how hard it would have been for him to have faced another life changing loss before his 21st birthday. Grief really sucks. I am so sorry. I enjoyed your Mom's newsletters and her sense of humor. May good stories and memories bring you peace.
