Our friend, the Ravenna Blog, has put together a pretty comprehensive and overwhelming ‘Thank you!’ post to all of those over the past two weeks who have stepped up to support the Schulte family. The number of people who have contributed to the Schulte family in their obvious time of grief and need speaks to the character of our NE Seattle communities. Thank you to everyone who has given to the memorial and medical funds (FundRazr and ProjektKarma), donated food, walked on their behalf, and given continued thoughts and prayers for Karina and lil’ Elias Jose’s recovery.
Dan Schulte, whose parents died and whose wife and son remain in critical care, has one favor to ask of everyone via Karina and Elias’s CaringBridge site. His note is below:
My friends keep calling and emailing to ask what they can do for me. There is something I ask of you all, esp my good friends in Indiana and Seattle, and please take this deeply to heart: DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE. I can’t say I’ve never been guilty of it, but I’m pledging now to never do it again. Please join me. Perhaps this is the mission for the rest of my life and so be it. I’m going to convince you all.
