A/R member Dies. Benefit Dinner to support the Children of Chris Mitchell

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Integrity

Please check out website www.258heaven.org for more info on Chris and his life as well as donation information.

As many of you know our friend, our fellow A/R blogger Chris Mitchell died in a tragic car accident just one month ago. He leaves behind three teenage children and a grandbaby. Chris was the sole custodial parent and sole provider for these children and they all lived with him. They are now faced with being parentless and the uncertainty of their future. There are huge financial expenses ahead. These kids need the help of friends, family and business associates to face these burdens that are ahead. They have huge expenses and future education and housing needs. Please consider what you can do to help Chris' children as they face the future without Dad and Grandpa. We can all identify with the huge LOSS there would be leaving 4 children behind in todays world. CREATIVE IDEAS welcomed that could impact their lives in a positive way.

Here is the info on the Benefit Dinner. There will be a silent/live AUCTION as well as raffles etc. We are looking for donations to the auctions/raffles and for you to buy a dinner ticket even if you can't attend.

Thanks EVERYONE for the outpouring of love, support and prayers to myself as well as the kids during this very sad time. Call me for infor/questions or donations. Linda Burandt 612-219-0262

I didn't know this, either.  I've just gone through some of his posts and they were great.  I feel his family's pain and will pray for them.  AR has lost a great writer & contributor.

Thanks....for your words. He was my boyfriend and we are all soooo sad. But, there is life to live and we all need to move forward. I am just looking for ways to help his kids. So, if anyone wants to contribute in anyway it would be greatly appreciated.

Linda:  This is just horrible.  There has been too much sadness so far this year.  My heart goes out to the children and grandchildren and I pray God will comfort them and bless them beyond measure.  I'm so very sorry.  It seems the good do die young.
