The Story

On January 28th, we tragically lost our precious Gavin Jordan in a horrific car accident. Words cannot express the pain and loss that we feel right now and will continue to feel daily. Gavin was a smart, fun loving, compassionate young man whose smile could light up a room and who touched many people's lives in one way or another. No one is ever prepared to bury a loved one let alone their child. His parents are trying to pay for his funeral expenses which had added up quickly to over $25,000 while having to take time away from work and still take care of his 5 other siblings. Our family needs help whether it be a prayer or a donation. If you can't donate, please pass this on or say a prayer as we need all we can get right now to get through this time.

Hi Everyone,

Another long post here, but this is about shirts, hoodies, bracelets, and spaghetti dinner this week! We are still trying to raise money to help cover some of the costs we have right now for Gavin.

So for everyone that has been asking about still being able to get a Gavin shirt and for those who are interested in the's the update! FOR SHIRTS-- I am going to hear from the school this week on how many, if any, shirts are left for us. they had to end up placing 4 orders to cover all the kids wanting one so even if there are not, we will be placing an order ourselves to ensure everyone who wants one gets one. Anyone wanting a shirt can send the payment to our paypal for whatever desired items they want with specific sizes, number, etc noted. Once I get everyone's orders (or a decent amount) all accounted for and tallied up, I can place the order and ensure we have exactly what everyone needs. If I have a shirt that matches what you want next week from the school left overs, I can get them to you sooner. I can also ship shirts, there may just be a couple dollar charge. Usually I wouldn't do that, but with our expenses topping $20,000 right now, we just can't front the money for everyone and we have to get Gavin's headstone paid for and ordered still so his temporary will remain at his grave site. As for BRACELETS, the ones ordered previously by Gavin's friend will be going to the kids at school first. He ordered 200, received them Wednesday, and Thursday at school he sold over 100 so those left most likely will not last long. I placed an order last night for another 200 so I can get those out to other people wanting them either in person or sent through mail once I receive them. Again just let me know how many you want. The breakdown for the everything is:

T-SHIRTS --- $10.75 up to size XL and you can get White Shirt with Blue lettering or Navy Shirt with Yellow lettering

Every X size above that increases price by $2 so ex. XXL = $12.75, XXXL = $14.75, and so on.

HOODIES --- Options will be Grey Hoodie with Blue lettering or Navy Hoodie with Blue or Yellow lettering. Hoodies -- $23.75 up to size XL and again every X size above that increases price by $2 so ex. XXL = $25.75, XXXL = $27.75, and so on. If items need to be shipped, it will be an additional $2.75.

BRACELETS -- $2.50 and there will be no extra charge for shipping to anyone.

You can email me ([email protected]) or message me with your email address/shipping address and I can send the invoice for payment to be made. I will update as soon as the order is placed for shirts, but we hope to have it done as quickly as possible so there isn't a long delay. We may even be able to have it it done before our fundraiser dinner this Thursday so people can buy shirts there if they want. If you have any questions just shoot me a message. I'm trying to respond to people as quickly as I can, but there are definitely times I want nothing to do with anyone so I promise I'm not ignoring and please don't take offense to it. Don't forget you can still donate to our youcaring page towards funeral expenses even if you don't want a shirt or bracelet. The link is provided in comments. 

Lastly, if you have not heard/seen, there is a fundraiser spaghetti dinner ($10 person) this Thursday 2/15 at Big Al's Sports Grille (34950 W Jefferson Ave, Brownstown Charter Twp, MI 48173) from 4:30- 7:30. Everyone and anyone is welcome so if you want to or plan to attend and have not notified Penny Tarwacki at 313-218-5779 or Michelle Shamie at 313-670-5814 please do so asap, so they can plan accordingly to ensure enough food/seating. I don't know much other than that I will be there, so they are the ones to ask any questions you may have.

If I forgot anything which is likely....just let me know in one way or another. Thank you again for all of your kind words, thoughts, prayers, donations, items sent and made, reaching out to check on me, etc and mostly for just loving our boy as we do!
