Sad News - reposted from the UEF board - Discussions - Business Topics - Etsy Teams: "It is with deep sadness we must share the news of the tragic loss suffered by Cindy Boardman, known here as designedbylucinda, a UEF moderator and long time member of the Etsy community.
On Thursday, February 3rd an accidental fire took her home, pets, and claimed the life of her 11 year old son, Kevin. No words can convey the shock and sadness we feel, Cindy is an active and valued member of our community and we share in her grief during this incredibly difficult time. Our thoughts, prayers and most profound sympathies are with Cindy and her family.
Her husband Robert Boardman's co-workers have set up a fund to assist the family with medical and living expenses. Donations can be sent here:
Boardman Family Fund
10150 Mallard Creek Rd.
Charlotte, NC 28262
Also, you can convo Etsian FancyPantsAndMore for an email address that is accepting donations for Cindy.
Send your prayers her way. I can't think of anything worse than this.
