For Emily

For Emily.<3

*** UPDATE: Our goal has been met. Thank you so much to everyone who pitched in and helped with this important need. We will leave this page up for another day for anyone that would like to continue to give in Emily’s name. There’s a scholarship/grant idea in the works, as a long-term way to honor Emily, and any additional funds will go towards making that a reality.  And of course, keep on the lookout for details on a celebration of life (in both Reno and in Portland), and for those in Reno that would like to help with this – please email Iain Watson ( ***

Please consider giving what you can to help ensure Emily’s body can be properly cared for and given the respect and love it deserves. We are looking to raise at least $2,000 pretty quickly to help cover the necessary costs and alleviate  financial strain for Mark and Emily’s friends. If you’d rather donate cash or a check, you can drop off to Holland or to any Heritage Bank branch, and ask that they put into the Spoken Views account (put “for Emily” in the memo). Since these funds are being used to release her body from the coroner’s office, we are trying to work quickly. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask (Iain – or Britt – Lots of love to Emily and to you all.
