    Default Info on Ag Scholarship in honor of Tamara's husband--post 44

    Tamara said to expect some more info about the scholarship fund after Oct 22.

    I contacted Tamara's sister, have a mailing address for cards, please PM me, don't want to post it.

    Cards and PMs or FB msgs appreciated.
    No flowers, please.
    They will be setting up a scholarship, details in a few weeks.
    No funeral arrangements yet.

    Many thanks to all for the messages of support.

    (thanks, Mods, for your patience)

    The scholarship fund is a wonderful idea. Maybe we could set up a CoTH contribution? I am apologetically clueless as to setup, but I would like to donate.

    Tried to send a PM for the address and I don't think it went thru.

    I wonder if there is another way to get that address, so you won't have to answer hundreds of PMs?

    The address on Production Acres WEB site is physical only, not mailing, tho given the givens, I bet it would work. Did not dig into FB to see if the mailing I was given is the one there. Sorry, but not knowing more of the circumstances, I just don't feel comfortable posting the addy even here, will deal w/ the PMs. Off to dog school this eve, will answer more later.

    I'm not sure what kind of scholarship fund the family has in mind, but I work at the University of Tennessee in the Animal Science Department and would be more than willing to do whatever I can to help from my end if needed.

    Tamara has some specific thoughts on this. She promises that as soon as she has things ironed out she will let us all know what she would like to set up in Calvin's name. Right now she is overwhelmed with many other details that must be attended to. I know she appreciates all the outpouring of support that has been offered. Please honor her wishes and keep an eye out for an update, however, it will take some time. Too many other things must take priority right now.

    Posted by Tamara on the other thread...

    Friends.

    We will celebrate his life on Thursday Aug 23 from 6-8 at Schuberts Funeral Home in Wartburg. We will have the funeral service the same night following. And we will bury him privately here on his land at a later date. In lieu of large flower masses, we would like to let people know that we will be establishing two funds for his memory to be announced probably on Tuesday.

    Thank you all again for your kindness to us,the extended family and our farm workers who were also his friends and family.

    Tamara and Family

    I posted this idea on the other thread and ran it by a FB friend that knows and worked for Calvin and Tamara. She thinks this is a great idea.

    Maybe we can organize a stallion service auction? Ask members on COTH to donate a breeding to their stallions.

    If we can get this organized, I am in for a breeding to Waps Applause.

    Sounds like a great idea.
