Rich Hyams - Scholarship Fund - UPDATED
I exchanged messages with Lisa Hyams yesterday, and she shared some information with me, that she has now given me permission to share with the rest of Rich's DISboard "family".
For those of you who were questioning how Rich died, it was related to the aeortic heart valve problems he was treated for four years ago. Since Rich was diagnosed with a heart condition at age 38, he became uninsurable.
Rich and Lisa's daughter Jacqui is in the 11th grade, and the family has set up a scholarship fund for Jacqui's college education. The fund will be controlled by the family.
If you are interested in contributing to the scholarship fund, or want to send a personal message to the family, Lisa asks that you do so through the funeral home. Contributions should be made to: The Jacqueline Hyams Education Fund c/o the Hyams Family.
The address for sending things is:
The Hyams Family
c/o TM Ralph Funeral Home
371 NW136th Street
Sunrise, FL 33325
If you need further information, the phone number for the funeral home is (954)587-6888.
If you will be in the Sunrise area, and would like to attend the memorial, it will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, from 2:00 - 4:00 pm.
The funeral home has assured me that they will continue to forward letters that arrive for the family after Sunday.
Since the logistics of handling a group donation would be very cumbersome and could become a logistical nightmare, donations will be on an individual basis. It would be nice if people would put their DISBoard name with their contribution so the family knows that we are thinking of them during this time.
