We received an email of concern about Friday nights vigil and a wake happening at the same time down the street from the common for a loss in the McGrath family. Please be respectfully answering any concerns among your peers and remind others that the Vigil has evolved to bring strength and unity for this family and it is not being facilitated by the Neighbor Brigade. Below is the note sent to the concerned friend of the McGrath’s and she was very positive in this response, Thank you :
Neighbor Brigade has passed on the info and is not the facilitator of this Vigil.
We are a group of community volunteers that are supporting the Monroe’s in its right time because of our Mission.
I have received the info for the vigil from a friend of the family that we are connected with and she gave me permission and “encouraged me to spread the word”.
It is my understanding that 3 women (names are not necessary) have invited this to happen as a community and they are from the Davis Thayer school where the children belonged.
I hope this helps and I also hope both families can be appropriately and respectfully able to mourn and be allowed opportunity to come together in unity to help these grieving families.
Lastly, I have not received any info about a need to help the McGrath family and just want to let you know that we are sorry for their loss. Neighbor Brigade is an available resource of volunteers who help families in day to day needs as they grieve and recover. Please feel free to ask us anymore questions or let me know if there is anything else we can help you with,
