We surpassed my goal of 100 shirts 3 days before the fundraiser even ended, and the final count is 122! An amazing 100 supporters destroyed my $1,200 goal by buying shirts and making general donations that total over $3,500, almost triple what I expected!
My family thanks from the bottom of our hearts all who bought t-shirts and donated. I have now raised $5,175 toward my $10,000 goal this year!
Stay tuned for information about our August fundraiser, where we will be raffling a Chromebook tablet/laptop and Beats earphones!

I formed the Nathan B. Marti Memorial Scholarship in honor of Nathan at his alma mater, Radford University. Each year, the scholarship benefits an undergraduate student who embodies Nathan's time at Radford by being involved in a social fraternity/sorority and demonstrating active community service. Preference is given to criminal justice majors.

The lucky iPad raffle winner is Chris McDermot of Arlington, VA. Congrats to Chris!
I'd especially like to thank Naz Dizeyee for her hard work collecting restaurant gift cards for the raffle; my sister Adrienne Mills and Beth Via for being raffle ticket selling machines; the wonderful silent auction donors; and everyone who donated their time and money to make this event a success.
My awesome friends in the band Compliments of George rocked it out at the end of the night, too!
Can't wait to see you all next time :)

Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
