We are All diminished by the Loss of Any of Us

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

This morning we learned of the sudden passing of Nestor Gassett, beloved husband of Katerina Gasset a long time member and contributor to the Active Rain community.

  The sad news was announced on Facebook and because of that, I am comfortable sharing this announcement in this forum.   There are a myriad of very unexpected expenses and on her Facebook page, Katerina is asking for contributions to defray the cost of his funeral and bringing their children home for his memorial service to be held on Saturday, February 8th. Katerina will post details of the service at a later date.

   Too often when we learn of someone's passing or serious illness...we meet the news too often by saying: "If there is anything we can do...." There is always something and this time, Katerina is asking that people help her defray the maby unexpected expenses incurred as a result of this tragic loss.

   Here is a link to Katerina's Facebook page where you may choose to make a donation to help with these expenses.

   You know the answer to what you can do....and the family so appreciates that you have answered their call.

     In Deepest Sympathy,

   Sally K. & David L. Hanson

Hi Sally and David- it was a shock to me when I saw Katerina's Facebook post. I met Nestor and Katerina when I started with ActiveRain at the first Meetup in Palm Beach. I've also watched their young son grow to a very nice young man. This is so very sad.

Yes, Kathy Streib You have watched Tristan grow up through AR blogging and AR meet-ups through the years. I am still in shock. It happened so fast.
