Every penny counts

This has no correlation to my typical subject matter but I am going to use this platform to bring more eyes and support to a family in need.

Tuesday March 1st, Kristi Oliver of Gresham Oregon, died from head and chest trauma after a 100-foot cedar tree fell on her car while driving. The tree smashed into the driver’s side of her SUV at 6:41 a.m

Another driver pulled over to try to help but Oliver was pronounced dead by the time an emergency crew arrived. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the tree to fall, though recent storms in the rural area east of Portland may have been a factor.

The moss-covered 100-foot cedar tree snapped and crushed Oliver’s windshield and hood.

Kristi was only 30 years old and nearly 4 months pregnant with her 2nd child. She leaves behind a husband and 3-yearold son.
