From what I've heard, an anonymous donor has paid for all the funerals. That's HUGH and THANK YOU for your compassion.
Also, two other small companies deserve recognition and Thanks for their contributions.
Mike Mims w/ Cherokee Child Caskets and
Trey Ganem and his son Billy w/ SoulShine Industries
who have suppled the 'painted' caskets. '“We feel like our children deserve a nicer casket than us adults,” Mims said.
THANK YOU AND BLESS YOU!
Reps., maybe you should reach out to these small businesses, particularly the one here in Edna.
Cherokee Child Caskets, which has been in business for 81 years, is based in Griffin. The company’s president, Mike Mims, confirmed to Channel 2 Action News that the company sent several caskets to Trey Ganem, who is customizing the caskets for the victims of the school tragedy, free of charge.
Ganem runs SoulShine Industries out of Eden, Texas. A Facebook post on Tuesday by I’m From Denver showed how Ganem has personalized the caskets with themes for each child’s favorite movies and cartoon characters
Hey LaPierre, Dumpsterfire and others: How's that good guy/bad guy gun thing working out for the kids and teachers in Uvaldi?
I'm praying that we can get enough Democratic senators in the next Congress so that we can pass meaningful legislation.
As long as the Republicans have a filibuster, nothing will change, nothing will happen, and people will keep dying from gun violence.
And again, sorry, but how many children need to die before we take a closer look at ourselves. Glad Marty made a successful business, IMHO, but maybe a little too far on the Second Amendment. Come on Texas, time to take a stance!
Before they takeout YOUR child
from the article...
"Eight days before a Texas teenager killed 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School, the manufacturer of the rifle used in the massacre posted an ad on social media that featured a toddler holding a similar weapon.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” read the post from Daniel Defense on May 16, the same day the Robb Elementary shooter turned 18."
and more ...
"A Daniel Defense spokesman told NBC News that the company has decided to skip the NRA event in Houston "due to the horrifying tragedy in Uvalde, Texas where one of our products was criminally misused."
"We believe this week is not the appropriate time to be promoting our products in Texas at the NRA meeting," he added.
The weapon used by the Texas shooter was a DDM4 V7 rifle, which sells for upward of $1,870. A Daniel Defense promotional video hails it as “a perfect rifle for everybody.”
Daniel Defense makes some of the priciest semi-automatic rifles on the market, charging upward of $3,000 for versions of weapons that can be bought elsewhere for less than a quarter of the price."
To my Reps., please look and Think! Not that that would ever happen.
How we can help is that we need stricter gun laws. Thoughts and Prayers are useless and meaningless. That statement is also a cop out.
Perhaps if The GOP took NRA's hands ouf their own pockets something meaningful would be done, but alas!-
