Horrible Tragedy Strikes a Member of Our Community

TheHartleySoapCompany posted the following on Artfire's forums.

"It is with deep sadness to share the news of the tragic loss suffered by Cindy Boardman, known here as designedbylucinda

On Thursday, February 3rd an accidental fire took her home, pets, and claimed the life of her 11 year old son, Kevin. No words can convey the shock and sadness we feel, Cindy is an active and valued member of our community and we share in her grief during this incredibly difficult time. Our thoughts, prayers and most profound sympathies are with Cindy and her family.

Her husband Robert Boardman's co-workers have set up a fund to assist the family with medical and living expenses. Please don't send any clothes or household items yet, as some were already donated. They will be living in a temporary place for about 6 to 8 months and won't have room to store things.

Lucinda is doing as well as can be expected.

Boardman Family Fund
Knight Communications

PayPal donations for our contribution can be sent to:
All excess donations will be transferred to the family's fund.


An article in the Charlotte Observer sadly confirms this most terrible news.  The thoughts and prayers of the Refugees are surely with Lucinda as she recovers from this incalculable loss.  I lost a dear friend to a house fire in 2007, and a working smoke detector would surely have saved her life.

PLEASE take a moment today and check to be sure you have a working smoke detector on each floor of your home.  This could prevent such a tragedy from taking the life of you or your loved-ones. 

Thank you.
