From Lisa Buccella:
A Franklin family has endured great pain as they navigate their steps while mourning the sudden deaths of their two young children. Whether you know them or not, there are many ways to offer subtle support as our town comes together. There are many businesses working to find ways to show solidarity and comfort. I'm sure there will be many more and we can share the info on social media too. Please, consider helping our local businesses offer what they can to the family and check the websites for the dates....most are today.
If you buy a cupcake or 12 at The Cake Bar, it will have an impact on the family.
If you buy one bottle of wine or a case at Pour Richards, it will have an impact on the family.
If you ate at Rick's Cafe this week and had a cup of coffee or a meal, it will have an impact on the family.
If you take a class at Live, Love, Barre or Tranquil Souls, it will have an impact on the family.
If you choose to make a donation of any amount to Dean Bank or the online gofundme that is available, it will have an impact on the family.
If you choose to support them by attending the vigil tonight, it will have an impact on the family.
My experience tells me that this type of support definitely makes an impact on a family. My sister and her three young children were the recipients of huge community support in their town in Florida during the time when her husband was ill and passed away. Their community showed support is so many ways that were meaningful, comforting and offered bright moments. The outpouring of love is very comforting.
And, I feel it in my own heart when I think of what others did for them.
