Rea Blackburn lived a life of touching others!
Starting as a son and brother, becoming a husband and father, to being a proud Grandpa and 'Santa Ray' to many. Ray was a wonderful, kind and caring man.
He's spent the last month in the hospital fighting for time to see his family as he was dealing with kidney failure. Dialysis treatments were helpful but took their toll on his body. His body did not respond to the treatments but he was able to see his children and grandchildren!
His frequent inquiry over these last few weeks has been, "What about mom (his wife of 48 years)?" We're looking to raise funds so that mom is not burdened with medical, funeral, and other expenses. Our family is rallying and doing what we can, we need help. Can you help us make Dad's final wish come true?
Thank you all for the love and support you have shown our family. There are no words that adequately express the love and feelings we have for Rea, 'Ray', Santa 'Ray', Papa Santa, Dad.
