Oh no! How awful! Thanks for telling us, m3rmald.



RE: Remembering Rachel Mayer

I will send a donation in her memory to the African Violet Society of America.
Very sad. Thank you for letting us know.

RE: Remembering Rachel Mayer

dragonfly2008--A few people in the VioletReflections Yahoo group had the same idea..

One of the list moderators, Jana had this to add:

"This is a wonderful idea but please wait before doing this? If we collect the monies and donate it as one lump sum to the Tinari Endowment Fund then Rachel's name & Violet Reflections name will be listed in *every* AVSA magazine. The Tinari Endowment Fund was created so AVSA will never die off from lack of funds or membership.
I'm sure Millie would be willing to (or I can) collect the donations & forward them all together to AVSA."

RE: Remembering Rachel Mayer

P.S. when everything gets sorted & all, I can provide Jana's paypal address if anyone would like to donate to the "lump sum" donation to AVSA.

I'm going to be donating all the money (and/or time or whatever else) I possibly can to keeping the websites and forum up and running.
