Sad news for Gene and Georgie

Post  Laura on Mon Mar 18, 2013 11:25 am

Gene and Georgie, the owners of Skate 'n' Place, lost their daughter, Tami, on Friday. Can the MissFits spare the cash, or could we take up a quick collection, to send flowers or make a memorial contribution from the league? If this is something we want to do, I could swing by practice tonight to collect donations (if we go that route rather than use league money), and make the arrangements in time for tomorrow's memorial service.

I know our relationship with Skate 'n' Place hasn't been perfect, but this has to be an awful time for Gene and Georgie, and some support from the skating community might be nice. I've posted here before I've shared anything on facebook - given our past - but maybe we'd want to let other area leagues know so they could send messages of support? There's an address on the Skate 'n' Place facebook page.

Link to Tami's obituary is here.

Oh this is sad. Good thinking on the flowers. Maybe one of the craftier Fits would make a card for everyone to sign??

Good idea ladies, I will craft up a card today and bring it to practice tonight.
I will also contribute some dollars towards flowers if you are doing that.
