Gill Family

Isn't this a beautiful family?  Well this beautiful family could really use some help right now.  Matasha is my supermom!  With ten children, she is the most organized efficient and calmest person I know! And Kenny, well I've worked with him for the last 5 years and he truly is one of the good guys!

"Kenny and Matasha Gill are the parents of 10 children, his hers and theirs. They were in a horrible wreck this past week and both have bad injuries. Matasha's 'Nanny' lost her life. They had their 3 month old son with them at the time, but thank God he was uninjured. The Gills live in Neosho Missouri. It is going to take several months for both to even begin to heal and need all the help they can get.

All we can really ask is that you pray for this beautiful family.  However, if you have the ability GoFundMe has an account set up to help cover some of the expenses they are going to endure during this horrific time.  Click here to be directed to that page.
