We'll be holding a memorial service for Aimee at 7pm this Thursday, December 29 at Saint Luke's Luthera Church here in Federal Way, WA (515 S 312th St). Aimee had an office there as part of her work as a counselor with Lutheran Counseling Network, and she had a good relationship with the staff there.
Between myself, Donna and Justin, we are asking that people who would like to do something in Aimee's honor consider one of the following two options in leiu of sending flowers:
- World Vision's Fund to help Sexually Exploited Children (link below). This is a cause Aimee cared a lot about, and we'd talked about supporting this cause recently. Many thanks to friends at World Vision for setting this up, Jane Henry in particular. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/world-vision/rememberingaimeerhoads
- If you'd prefer instead to honor Aimee's love for Rowan by contributing to a college fund for Rowan, an account has been set up at Wells Fargo. Checks can be made out to "Rowan Rhoads College Fund" and mailed to Pat Rhoads, 2653 SW 333rd Place, Federal Way, WA 98023. Thanks to Aimee's brother Justin Richmond for setting this up.
Have a Merry and Blessed Christmas.
