Brothers and Sisters of Local 6132,
Please read the following message from Blake Leinneweber. This was taken from the GoFundME page for David Crain.
We are currently raising money for a close friend of mine. His name is David Crain. He is not only a co-worker, but also a mentor and close friend. David had a mild stroke a couple of weeks ago. He spent multiple days in the hospital. Two of those days in ICU.
We are thankful that David will be ok, but also know that medical bills can add up very quickly. In addition to any donations collected here there will also be a BBQ Fundraiser/Benefit scheduled for this Sunday, December 11 at 911 Canyon Wren Dr. in Buda, TX. BBQ will be served all we ask that if you eat please donate whatever amount feel.
No amount is too small or too great. All donations are very much appreciated. I know myself, the Crain family, and everyone involved with this effort will be forever grateful. Thank you.
