I am sure many of you are familiar with Renee from Womanist Musings, an often-linked blog here at The F-Word. Renee has had a loss in her family and is fundraising to pay for the funeral of her nephew, who died at age 20. If you’re able to help out, please go over to her blog where you can find information on how to donate and help support Renee:

His name was Jesse James Cox and he was known as the gentle giant. He was 6’5 240 lbs. He was much loved by his mother, father, two brothers and extended family. Jesse always had time for everyone and a bear hug for everyone that needed it. As a family, we are absolutely devastated by his loss and this is magnified by the fact that we are unable to pay for his funeral.
