More Info on How to Help

Okay everyone, here's an update. I now have the name of the funeral home and mortgage company for the family I posted about yesterday. If you can help-- even with just a few bucks-- please email me: and I will tell you to whom you should write the check and how to mail it to me. I'll gather all funds and drop them off directly at the mortgage bank and funeral home.

Other ways to help:
HEB gift cards and/or new or gently used gifts for the kids (and their mom) are much appreciated. I am offering to sweeten the deal thusly: if you will send me gifts for them, I -- Spike "Scrooge" Gillespie-- will personally wrap them and deliver them for Christmas. My mailing address is:

P.O. Box 4843
Austin, TX 78765

Info on the kids:

There are three girls and 1 boy.

Girl #1: 11 years old
Coat Large
Shoes 5
Pants 12
Shirts 10/12

Girl #2: 8 years old
Coat Med/large
Pants/dresses 12
Shirts 10/12
Shoes 1-1/2 or 2

Girl #3: 6 years old

Thanks so much for any help you can offer,
