After pushing to complete a two year program in a year and a half, on 15 June 2012 Katrina graduated magna cum laude from the Lake Washington Institute of Technology newly accredited Funeral Service Education Program. (It would have been summa cum laude except Business Law and Chemistry dropped her GPA from 4.0)

We would like to thank everyone who has helped fund her education to this point.

Our heartfelt thanks to all who answered our plea for assistance thus far - our goal previous was met in just a few days!

Next on the agenda is finding a job AND getting the Intern licenses in order to actually be able to work. We still need assistance for this portion; if you can assist, you would have our thanks.

For those who may not be aware, Ashleigh's disability income is the only source of income at this time, and neither the VA nor Social Security pay all that well when it comes to meeting monthly expenses, let alone funding college for two family members. (Both Katrina and M are past the ages where they can qualify for education assistance on behalf of Herb's disability.)

Thank you all so much!
