Legacy: Nina's Plot
“She told Bess a couple of weeks before she died that giving was her way of being happy and if she could not give, she could not be happy.” Nina’s Plot: Honoring the Legacy of Nina McEntire. Nina had a plot, and Nina had a plan. She believed that every person should have access to a full belly and a full mind. This year, Nina started two ‘helping-funds’ to ensure that her dreams could become reality. This program offers food and scholarships to those in need.
Linda's Lunch Box
“Someone (I think it was Ted) told me that every day Linda packed an extra lunch to take to school just in case one of her students forgot theirs. Giving was just a part of who she was. The Bible says that we should store up treasure in heaven and that one of the ways we do that is to give to those who are less fortunate that we are. You know, when I die, one of the first places I want to go see is Linda’s place. I want to see what God can do with the kind of gifts Linda gave.”
John and Rosemary Fund
“All God’s Children—from the city to the country, from the school house to the farm, from the boardroom to the street, from clinical precision to open arm acceptance, from music to gourmet, from unusually rare to home grown– John’s arduous good work, his connoisseur appreciation, his joyous love was encompassing of All God’s Children. The expanse of his life and the continuation of his legacy mark a new stretch of this journey. Your presence at this juncture is significant and greatly felt by the family and the community. Your choice to engage in ‘doing good’ -in honor of John- plants a seed for future blossom and fruit.”
