BENEFITING: CALVARY MONUMENT BIBLE CHURCH
EVENT DATE: Nov 11, 2012
My sister Ruth was an amazing woman and a great mother. She died suddenly in her sleep on October 20th leaving behind 3 young children. Esther (age 5), Isaac (age 3) and Ruby (9 months). She will be dearly missed by all of us but most of all by those she cared for 24/7... her family.
Mark, her husband, has been the sole bread winner for the past 5 years but now, he will need to be the caregiver as well. The Leathermans have been one of the most generous families I have known over the past 9 years. They have given selflessly to those in need. Both financially and with their time. In 2004, Mark & Ruth quit their jobs and gave a year of their time and abilities to the Mennonite Disaster Service helping those who have been struck by misfortune.
We now have the opportunity to give back to them in their time of need. Let us all band together in support of Mark & Ruth's children and in memory of Ruth.
I will be running the Harrisburg Marathon in her memory on November 11 and the Calvary Monument Bible Church has graciously set up a fund to assist in caring.
The immediate goal is to cover funeral expenses, childcare and housing over the next 3 months considering that Mark will have very little opportunity to work. Thank you.
