Default First Rays Notice

Capt. Nathan Raudenbush, 24, a friend of my son's, and the son of one of my
coworkers, was recently killed while on duty in Iraq.

He left behind his wife of three years Casey, and a 20-month old son,
Jackson.

An education fund has been established for Jackson, and for the next several
weeks, the profits from all First Rays sales will go to that fund.

If you wish to make an additional contribution, you may do so in three ways:

1. Add a dollar amount in the "comments" section of the order form, and I
will add it to the total.

2. Send a check to us at 3057 Yorkshire Rd, Doylestown PA 18902, payable
to the "Raudenbush Memorial Fund", and we'll deposit it for you, or

3. Send that check directly to that fund, c/o National Penn Bank, 702 S.
Main St., Phoenixville PA 19460

Our condolences to one & all. This is so sad & even moreso when it's
closer to home.......
It is so good of you Ray to contribute but this get's me thinking that the
Government should
have funds set up for all military families that are killed in action. Oh
don't get me started.

I absolutely agree, Wendy. The way our servicemen are treated is a sin.

So far, about 15 people have added some money to their orders to add to the
fund. Orchid people are great.

TAPS is an organization that gives to military families who have lost loved
ones.

It is one of my charities. http://www.taps.org/
