Our friend, Old Line Garrison member and Terrapin Base XO Anthony Federici (SL-5583), suddenly and unexpectedly lost his mother yesterday and is in dire need of assistance.

Tony and his family have, unfortunately, over the last year had some unfortunate events occur within their household that have depleted their savings and have had them living quite lean to make sure ends meet and kids are fed. All the while, Tony has given his all to making sure that his RL Base has kept on chugging and he is always ever thinking of others.

Tony's mother died yesterday most unexpectedly, having no evident health problems and was an otherwise health 69-year-old woman. She failed to awake from an afternoon nap.

Right now Tony and his family, of whom it is only he and his brother, are faced with a deadline of this Thursday, January 17th, to claim his mother's remains from the hospital and have her remains cremated. At this moment, Tony and his family are $600 short of the costs for this and are asking for help from the Legion. If they are unable to meet this deadline, her remains will be 'unclaimed' and the state will charge by the day to keep them until they are claimed.

We will be collecting donations via Paypal. You can make a donation as a 'Gift' to:

Donation sent...I hope it helps!!!! My thoughts and prayers along with those of our Freedom Base members are with Tony and his family at this difficult time. Please let me know if there is anything else we can do to be of assistance.

Who is collecting the funds and how will they be accounted for/distributed to the family?

Sent what I could. I hope the money is raised. It would really bother me to know my mother's remains were being held so I hope this is resolved for them.

Awesome. I hope it can provide them some level of comfort in this difficult time. He will be in our thoughts.

I know that he is relieved and comforted by everybody's help. It would have been awful if he and his brother couldn't have recovered their mother's remains. May the Force be with them in their time of need.

I'm so glad to hear that the money has been raised. I can only hope that he can find peace during this trying time.

I am very glad to hear the goal has already been reached. I can't imagine facing that situation. It is refreshing to see how helpful everyone is when one of our own is in need.

I know this is late,
but I just sent what I could to help moments ago.
I really wish it could be more...
Perhaps there is some way I can help more later.

This is terribly awful, and my deepest sympathies are with Tony and his family right now.

I only just saw this today (Thrs, 1/17). It was the first time I checked the RL forums since this past Fall.
I really don't know what led me to look at the forums today.

Perhaps the force really -was- guiding me? I have no other explanation.

As I am sure many do, I consider Tony a good friend, and would help him in any way I could.

I know the 'goal' was reached,
but I hope any amount over that will be helpful too.

Gosh,
Life is -so- short. And we never know.
...May we all hug the people we love a little more today.
There -isn't- always tomorrow.

- Jim
