Fund raiser

Not sure how many got this e-mail but thought I would post anyway.
08/30, Sunday afternoon, McHenry Illinois There will be a Benefit for JonD's fiancee, Yvette Cano at the VFW Post in McHenry IL...JonD & Yvette have been together for 17 years. Things are expected to be in Probate for a year and her WWR family is giving this "impromptu" benefit for her on Sunday, August 30th. At this point, it is still a surprise for Yvette. There are several Welcome Homes scheduled on Sunday and afterwards they are going to "stop by" the VFW and we will be there to offer her our support and share our memories of JonD.

If you expect to attend please email Sandra Christensen: [email protected] She is trying to get a head-count for food.

I got the video from Ken, aka Monster. I think he may have put it together. Not sure. But it is a beautiful tribute to a great guy.

As for the fund raiser I think Di and I will head down there after church. No special time set as of yet.

Fundraiser for Yvette

That Video for JonD was made by one of the WWR guys "Chambeaux". Nicely
done........Hard to watch. JonD was a great guy. We all miss him. We were going to do a Holy-Hill run upon his return from vacation. We should
do it. Havent been there yet this season.
Ann+I will also be going to the fundraiser.....maybe some of us can ride up together.

Ride safe

That video was a great tribute. I wish I could have met him and shook his hand. Prayers again to his family and to all of you that knew him.
