Due to the number of my mom’s friends and acquaintances that wish to do something in her memory, my brother and I have created a memorial fund account in her name. Any donations received will go to the following:
- Assistance with the funding of the Alaska trip to take her ashes to rest up there per her last wish
- A donation to a domestic violence shelter to assist others in need
- A donation to cancer research, so hopefully someday soon others can defeat this horrible disease
EDITED: THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS. ALL FUNDS THAT WERE DONATED HAVE BEEN FORWARDED TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY. IT’S TIME WE FIND A WAY TO END THIS HORRIBLE DISEASE.
You can read more information about Tamara in the September 6th entry on this blog. She was diagnosed in October of last year with cancer, and we’ve had months to prepare for the inevitable, but that did not make it any easier on those that loved her. I know we will all miss her terribly, and I look forward to the trip in June 2014 to honor her last wish.
