With a heavy heart and a great deal of sadness, RealCentralVA will be closed from Friday in honor and memory of Sheila Lublin, wife of Bill Lublin, a friend and fellow author at the Agent Genius blog.
Some of us are chipping in money to help Bill and his son get through the next few days by setting up food deliveries from local Philadelphia area restaurants/deli’s. If you’d like to contribute, you can click on the donation widget in the right side bar. Excess donations will be sent to the American Cancer Society.
Update 08 August 2008: Wow. The community blew by the $1500 goal. From AG: “Any additional funds beyond $1500 will go directly to the Sheila L. Lublin Memorial Fund, c/o Lupus Foundation of America-Phila. Tri-State Chapter, 25 Washington Lane, Suite 39-1, Wyncote PA 19095. (Sheila suffered from Lupus herself)”
I cannot fathom what Bill and his family are going through, but hopefully the community support through the meals and donations will do a little to help ease the pain the next few weeks.
There is more this world than blogging, but the connection felt among the real estate bloggers is very real, as is the collective sadness and desire to help. The support that Bill’s blogging family is putting out is overwhelmingly gratifying.
Regarding our own families and friends – every day matters.
