The Lily Ridgway Benefit

$22,828 of $10k goal

Raised by 190 people in 33 months
In lieu of flowers at Darcie's memorial service, the family is asking that donations be made in person at the service or here at this website.

It was a strong wish in Darcie's last months that all money previously given go towards an education for Lily. This fund will see that wish fulfilled.

I can not adequately thank you for your donations to Lily's benefit . It's overwhelming and heart wrenching. I thank you with every bit of love I have left. The family will be meeting next week with our trusted financial planner to invest the money that has been given both here on this site and the money given in the past towards Darcie's fight against cancer. When Lily is ready for college, or whatever education she chooses, money will not be an issue. Darcie talked about Lily's future education so often over the last year. We promised her we would make her future bright. Thank you for helping to fulfill that promise.

My heart goes out to the Ridgeways and the Fraziers. Seeing how much love is on this page, between comments and donations, theres no question that Darcie was a wonderful person who clearly meant a lot to so many people. Mr. Ridgeway, my deepest sympathies go out to you and your family during this time.

i can't stop thinking about this amazing woman, Darcie Ridgeway. Though it is not my place to know the meaning of a particular person's life, i could write or talk for hours about the impact Darcie had on me. And the funny thing is that though i knew her, i did not know her well. But over the seven years that my family has been gifted with the blessing of Redeemer Elementary School, i have absorbed her presence. i have observed her, emulated her, received reassurance from her, participated with her in activities for the kids, and on occasion, i have received her wonderful compliments. A compliment from Darcie was an amazing blessing. it frequently included the word "Awesome." She was the kind of person from whom a compliment went deep, mostly because if a person this amazing compliments you, it feels great. So as i reflect on the meaning of her life, i can say with assurance that she has brought out greatness in others that will multiply throughout the world for generations to come simply because she made those around her feel more confident and joyful, like there was no where else to be.

The only thing that makes any sense to me is to imagine Darcie beautiful and strong in heaven and running around organizing things, spending time with her family in heaven and watching over her family on earth, especially Lily. I want to think that every time from now on that I feel the sunshine on me, I will think it is the warmth of Darcie smiling down on me.

Judd, Please accept my sincerest apologies. There was some confusion on my credit card statement. The donation that I made to Lily in December was inadvertently reversed. I've since resolved it with my bank and wanted to make my donation again today. My heart and deepest condolences goes out to you and your family. Frances Lee and family
