Family Fund for Will Grigg
$48,541 of $50,000 goal
Edited and Updated, April 13, 2017
William Norman Grigg passed away on April 12th, 2017 at the age of 54. He is survived by his wife Korrin, and six children.
The outpouring of goodwill and stories of the lives he aided in his work has been powerful to witness, and the world is just a bit dimmer without him.
The funds we've raised and continue to raise will go to help his family get through this.
If you have questions or comments, feel free to look me up on Facebook. Thank you for all you do.

Will Grigg has been in the hospital suffering from the aftermath of a very serious infection. He and his family could use all the help they can get.
Right now, any financial assistance would be greatly appreciated. At the moment, I'm working toward helping make sure the family's day-to-day expenses are met, but it's likely that he'll be engaged in rehab when he recovers more. This means he could be out of action for a time.
If you happen to live very close to the Boise area and might be willing and able to lend a hand, shoot me a message through this site and we'll chat.
I will try to post updates for Will here, and feel free to send me a message and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.
Will is one of the country's best and most eloquent proponents of individual liberty, and I personally am grateful for his work. I know a number of you are as well, and many of you have expressed as much over the years.
I know for certain that he appreciates all you do, not only in helping him but in your own promotion of the cause of freedom.
If you've been blessed this year, throw him a tip or two.
Thank you all very much for what you've done and what you do.

I've never been much of a writer (let alone one of my father's caliber), but I know that I must express my thanks to you all somehow.
The support that we have received over these past few months has been more than I would have ever thought possible. A few weeks before my father passed away, he heard about the GoFundMe page (that our dear friend A.J. Ellis took it upon himself to set up) reaching $10,000 in his support. He said, "I didn't know that many people cared."
I think he knew, though. He was unrelentingly humble about his accomplishments -- sometimes to a fault. But that's only one of the countless reasons that I looked up to him and loved him more than even he would have been able to express.
And remember, though my father may no longer occupy our physical world, he will live on in all of us who continue to fight until our very last breath.
Dum Spiro, Pugno.

Feel free to contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
It is with the deepest sorrow that I report to you that William Norman Grigg has passed away this afternoon. It comes as a terrible and unexpected shock to myself and others. He was an exceptionally inspiring figure, and I know that he was very grateful for your care and consideration in his time of need.
I will share any information I can with you here regarding arrangements and services.
Take care, and embrace your loved ones.
I'll be ending the campaign here on gofundme soon and would encourage those that still want to help out or be a regular sponsor of Will's work to go to the donate button at his blog at freedominourtime.blogspot.com . He could still use your support.
I know a number of people who've had their stories told only because there's a guy named Will Grigg who took the time, dug through the morass and smoke thrown up by prosecutorial malefactors, and found the truth of the matter. Some undoubtedly would be in prison unjustly today were it not for his work.
Again, thank you all very much helping out so much with this campaign.
Dum spiro pugno!
Will was a journalist I regularly listened to. I am libertarian and found him through LewRockwell.com. His desire for peace and justice matched mine. I always watched his site. And now I can't. But I am in debt to him for his years of showing me what I didn't know.
Best wishes Will. Hope you are feeling better soon. If you can get back to posting then it will make me happy to read it. But the important thing is that you manage your health. Your readership will understand.
Will provides inspiration to all of us.
Thanks for organizing this. Keep us posted if and when more is needed.
