My best friend, Jon, just suffered the loss of his spouse, a few days before they were to see my wife for life insurance.
Ron suffered a heart attack while driving, He had their newly adopted child in the car with him. He was able to pull over and put the car into park, in Blakeslee, PA hours away from home. He passed before help could arrive and LJ was witness to his passing.
Jon and LJ are back together in our little part of New Jersey and are trying to put their life on track. They are going to lose their condo and, if I have my way, they are going to move in with me and Mrs Greyflank.
I think they will be all right, But there are many bills that need to be paid; adoption in the USA is expensive and LJ had to get therapy session even before this traumatic experience.
If this was a problem that books could solve, I know my Bookcrossing friends would send an avalanche of paperbacks and hardcovers their way. Instead, and I hate to ask this, I am hoping each of you could send two or three dollars their way -- the cost of the postage you would have used -- to the go-fund-me page I started for them.https://www.gofundme.com/RonsFuneral
And if you could post this link to Facebook, Twitter, or whatever social media you prefer, I would be ever so grateful.
Thank you everyone for reading down this far, it's appreciated.
