"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to preserve and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."

Christopher Reeve 1952-2004


One of the greatest gifts we give our children is a sense of family.  In the first few days following Paula’s murder and at the height of his grief, her eleven year old nephew, Connor Blackburn removed $50 from his wallet and asked his mother if he could open a bank account so Anna would always be cared for.  From this kind gesture was born the idea of a trust fund to secure Anna’s future.


From its inception until its last deposit date in March of 2006, the account which is managed by Paula’s two sisters, Lynn and Lana, and by Jason MacRae reached $5,000.
