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: email@example.com
And for cards or flowers, her address is:
Mrs Tami Brown
507 West Main St, Apt B
Endicott, NY 13760
