Hi all, this is Xenutia, posting from Tami's LJ for her.

As some of you may already know, Tami's husband Bill passed away this morning, after a long struggle with kidney disease and other illnesses. This has come as quite a shock as he had been making good progress in recent months, and understandably Tami and the family are ill-prepared because of this. I know many of you have helped out before now, when Bill needed urgent medication or their situation had left them struggling to pay rent, and I hate to ask now when so many people are left short by recession, but if you can help out in any way to cover Bill's funeral expenses, either by a donation or simply by amplifying the signal on your LJs, Twitters, etc, I know it would go a long way toward taking some of the pressure off her.

I know Tami would also appreciate any messages or prayers from her friends right now . . . she might not read them right away but I'll pass it along and then they'll be here for her when she's ready to read them.

If you want to make a donation towards funeral costs, you can send directly to Tami's Paypal account: tribereddragon@gmail.com

And for cards or flowers, her address is:

Mrs Tami Brown
507 West Main St, Apt B
Endicott, NY 13760
USA

We'll be posting funeral details when we have them, for anybody that would like to attend or send flowers directly. Please repost this anywhere you can.

ETA: This is Tami....adding the funeral details.The funeral will be Friday at the William R. Chase Funeral Home on Chenango St in Binghamton, NY. He's being cremated, but there will be a calling hour from 3-4 with a service there at the funeral home at 4pm.

Wow . . . I'm just . . . stunned . . .
I've been friends with Tami since about 2002, and BIll has been sick pretty much the entire time I've known her . . . and I genuinely never thought the day would come that he would actually pass away.
Tami, my thoughts are with you and the family. If you need anything at all - even just someone to vent to - you know where I am.
I love you, sis!

Donation made. I know I've been out of touch with Tami and the TW world in general, but I saw this on blackbird_song's LJ and I had to donate. I am so sorry and I send my love and good thoughts to Tami in this terrible time.

I was out of town until late yesterday, and so have just seen this.

I am so very, very sorry. My utmost condolences to you and both families for your loss.
