Rippy Family needs our help

-A A +A

Tanya and Waylon Rippy are friends of my daughter and their little girl Jaylon has been to our home, with my grand daughter.

A sturgeon jumped into their boat and struck the mother, son and daughter. The five-year-old daughter died.

This is a tragedy beyond belief.

There is a fund set up for them on GoFundMe. Please if you can, contribute to the fund set up to help with the medical and funeral expenses.

Besides the Go Fund Me account there is a second fund set up for them at Drummond Community Bank, 1627 N. Young Blvd., Chiefland, FL. 32626, in their name (Tanya and Waylon Rippy).

Any amount that you can afford will be greatly appreciated.

It will never bring this beautiful little girl back to the arms of her parents but it will help in releasing some if not all of the financial pressure that is building upon the backs of this family.

God bless this family and may the Lord take Jaylon to his arms, as I know he has.

Noel Desmond


Editor's note: There is also a cake auction today, July 16, at 6 p.m. at the Chiefland Elementary School cafetorium that will benefit the Rippy Family.
