Laurie Thomas had many gifting’s and talents. She served her family and community in excellence. She was not only on staff of an amazing ministry, Hands of Hope Tucson, but served on boards, event teams, churches and passion projects. One of those projects was Joy in the Mourning. We are honored to be able to serve her family at this time. As her husband Dan put it, she was advocating for herself, and she didn’t even know it. Joy in the Mourning serves families who have faced loss by creating awareness, providing immediate assistance, building community around them and offering ongoing support. We will be assisting with the immediate needs and memorial costs for the family. If you would like to give a tax deductible gift to the $5,000 goal to help the family at this time, any amount is appreciated. Anything raised over the amount needed will go to support other families facing loss. You can give through our website via zelle or paypal. Thank you for your prayers and support through this time.
