The Dales Walk
As I was visiting Corey today, I read about the Dales Walk being pursued to raise funds for the Joseph Salmon Trust. This trust has been established in memory of 3 year old Joseph Salmon who died in his sleep. The money in this trust goes to help with the expenses when a child dies. I think this is a wonderful cause. Funeral expenses are so high and sometimes it is years before money can be saved in order to purchase a headstone for the grave. One of the best ways to help families who have lost children is to help with these kinds of expenses. We had someone donate money when Gus died and we were able to purchase his marker quickly....there are some graves around his that still have the little metal pokes used to id the graves that do not have markers yet. It would make me very sad if we had not been able to mark Gus' grave....
So...if you feel led, please consider helping this group raise some money to help these grieving families. Every donation makes a difference.
