Box Breaks in Memory of Bill [TheRealKennedy]

In November of last year, we lost our good friend Bill to a battle with cancer.

At that time, we reached out to Bill's family to see if there is any way that we could help, as Bill meant a lot to us and we wanted to do something to honour his memory.

Just recently, Bill's mom made me aware of a scholarship fund at the New England College, where Bill attended. Until June 30th, the alumni will match dollar-for-dollar any donation that we make. As friends of Bill, we would like to honour his memory by making a contribution to this scholarship program.

I have been in communication with Bill's mom about this Break. Today she sent this message to us all:

To honor and celebrate Bill's life, and to acknowledge with gratitude the wonderful and meaningful college experience that my son had in New Hampshire at New England College - I feel blessed. Thank you and the entire Box Breaks community for the opportunity for this kind of "paying it forward". This gives another special meaning to Bill's life, and his huge passion. Being a part of your community gave him such joy and pleasure. Even when there was unimaginable suffering, this passion uplifted him.

Thank you again for your generous spirit, and for your friendship with Bill that brought him so much gratification and JOY.
I wish you could have seen the way his face would light up when he was "in the flow"!

I figured this was a good cheque # to send off to New England College for the donation in memory of Bill...
