**************************************

**********UPDATE 7/6*********
We have just learned that the visitation will be Tuesday 5-8pm at Klein Funeral Home - 16131 Champion Forest Drive, Spring TX 77379.  The funeral will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church - 5201 Spring Cypress, Spring TX 77379 at the corner of Klein Church Rd at 10:00 AM Wednesday.
**********UPDATE**********

The Association of Former Gators (AFG) and Gator Parents Ranks (GPR) are asking for financial support for his buddies who may reside out of state, so they may travel to the service.  We have setup this site to facilitate that need, as we already have many requests for "how do we..."

Another option is through the use of Frequent flyer miles.  Please contact us if this is an option, so we can match the need with the cadet.

The family has also asked that any other donations be made to March of Dimes.  Any leftover funds from this campaign, unused for air travel, will also be donated to the March of Dimes.
