Thank you to all those kind and thoughtful people who have paid tribute to Kathreen and Rob over the past few days.

Thank you to all of the generous people and companies who have made financial contributions to the children’s present and future needs.

Thank you to all the friends, near and far, who have supported the family in this most difficult of times.

Your kindness and generosity can not be overstated, it has been a source of comfort for those who need it most.

Thank you.

When I went to send money through paypal, it wanted a mobile phone number along with the email. Is there a way around this? Thank you.

Hi Lisa, this is the first we have encountered needing a phone number. Perhaps try again and see if it is still required. If so, I am able to provide my number, please email me directly: procrasticraft at as I’d prefer not to share my number publicly. Thanks for taking the time to help out. Jules

Thanks, Jules. I did try again and it worked fine this time. :)

My thought and prayers are with the children and the families. I’m so sad to hear this news. May the family gain strength each day to cope with the loss.

I just made a small Paypal donation and noticed that the email provided is not registered. It might be helpful to register the account, since some people don’t feel secure sending Paypal funds to an unregistered account – takes only a few minutes. I’m sure that the people who are taking care of these details are working very hard, and I greatly admire them for being so proactive in such an awful time. Thank you so much for coordinating this effort on behalf of the kids. I like to think that if something ever happened to me and/or my husband, someone close to us would do something like this!
