|A Young Widow Needs Your Help|
Thank you for what
you're doing. I'm a recent young widow myself and I know there is
very little support available to us. My husband was killed in
Afghanistan this past May.

Sylvia Fanelli was
widowed at 36 with five children under the age of 10.
She had an
eighth-grade education, no skills, she never owned an automobile (and
never had a driver's license), and received very little
government assistance. Despite her obstacles, she managed to
raise her children into responsible and productive citizens while modeling an incredibly positive attitude --- it is an attitude that still lingers
today among those who were touched by her.
This non-profit organization is named in her memory. She was also my
grandmother :-) ....so I would really appreciate you checking this site
