Hello everyone! I am writing to you to invite you to help honor and remember Skeet. I am working with his daughter to raise funds to purchase a memorial plaque which will be displayed at the Braswell rec center. Any excess funds collected will be donated to the local chapter of the Red Cross.
You can drop off a cash donation at the Braswell or Roberson center. Even the smallest amount is helpful and meaningful. Just put it in an envelope, and write "JARVIS or SALLY" on the outside. If you prefer to write a check to the Red Cross, you can drop it off the same way, or mail it directly:
American Red Cross
Frederick E. Turnage Chapter
326 S. Franklin St.
Rocky Mount NC 27804
We hope to conclude our fundraising efforts by the end of April. Could you please spread the word to others who knew and cared for Skeet? I think the visual remembrance of a plaque at the rec center, combined with a gift that helps care for those in need, will be a wonderful way to honor Skeet’s great work ethic, and his warm, friendly personality (not to mention that GREAT laugh!).
