THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family of Jeff Thompson,

It’s hard to believe it’s been 9 months since we lost our dear sweet Jeff. I know all of you miss him as much as I do. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of him, and I still have a hard time believing I’m never going to see his smiling face at my door again.

Jeff was one of the kindest people I’ve ever had the privilege to know and call my friend. I’ve never known anyone with a warmer smile or such a wonderful laugh. I can still hear it today.

So in honor of Jeff’s 50th birthday on August 24th, I’m reaching out to ask for your help in raising $2,000 to purchase a bronze plaque in his memory. It will be embedded along the sidewalk of West Hollywood’s Memorial Walk, located on Santa Monica Boulevard, between Fairfax Avenue and Doheny Drive in West Hollywood, California.

Every bit of the money raised will benefit AID for AIDS, a non-profit organization that provides food, shelter and medical service for people in need who are currently living with HIV/AIDS but can no longer provide for themselves. I’ve provided a link to their website, so you can see the impact they make (http://aidforaids.net/memorial-walk/). There you can also find more information about the memorial plaque.

Above all else, Jeff loved helping people. He was never too busy to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, so I can’t think of a more meaningful way to honor Jeff than by helping people in need.

Please consider making a donation in Jeff’s honor—I just ask that you donate whatever you can afford. Every dollar helps and will make a difference for others.

Once the plaque is ordered it will take 4 to 6 months for the City of West Hollywood to arrange the installation.

I promise to keep you informed on the progress of the installation—as well as the specific date and location of the unveiling.

With love and gratitude,

Lisa Ortiz
