Lost my Son in 2007 and still grieving

MY son Eric Holke was killed in Iraq on July 15, 2007. It was only 4 days after his 30th birthday. I have been attending grief counseling since then and it just wasn't helping. My grief counselor suggested I start a Memorial Fund to honor him.

I did and it is helping knowing that he will be remembered. My initial donation to fund resulted in a Marine getting a Scholarship to Cal Poly Pomona. But to keep the fund going I need to get it to endowment status. At present I am a $3,000 short of the $10,000 required. If any one has any ideas on how someone on a limited fixed income can get donations please let me know. I am open to any and suggestions.

Starting this Memorial fund has done a great deal to aide me in transitioning form grief to remembering. And all the memories I have of my Son are good. Which in itself was one of the great achievements my Son was able to leave behind for his family and friends.

There is a website about my Son at http://www.eholkefoundation.org

Thanks for reading this and letting me cry on some shoulders.
