Tragedy happens all around us everyday: war, criminal violence, domestic violence, kidnapping, runaways. But there is nothing worse, in my opinion, than the unknown. I read today about a fellow Etsian whose husband disappeared on his way home from work on Wednesday, February 13. How truly terrifying for her and their children. They have a 4 year old daughter, a 2 year old son and she is expecting a baby in early October. It's the unknown factor that makes this so terrifying and tragic.
I live across the country from this family and cannot help in the physical search for him or in providing immediate comfort for his wife and children. I am praying for them and ask that you do the same. The Etsy community has rallied and is trying to help raise funds to offset the financial burden of this family. Please take a few minutes to read the following and help out as you can. Thank you.
This thread is for thoughts, prayers and updates in the disapearance of Nicholas Fransico. Nicholas has been missing since Wednesday, February 13, 2008. His car was found today (2/18)
His wife Christine owns two Etsy shops that are currently closed
According to Christine's sister (Jannell) financial support is desperately needed. Christine has a 4 and 2 year old and is pregnant with her third child (due in October).
SEATTLE AREA - if you are in the area and can help with search efforts, please convo Gabrielsaunt, she is coordinating Etsy Search Efforts. If you'd like to help by sending things for the kids, please convo fashiongreentbags, kvossdesigns or lovemeknot.
