A gift that keeps giving

The memorial scholarship to help students at Freeman was a very touching read (“How this family and this convertible are helping kids,” Aug. 16, 2018).

In his wife’s memory, an anniversary gift that will keep on giving was such a compassionate undertaking by Jim Hawley and his family. I praise them, for out of their love and grief came generosity and forward thinking. With this legacy, Ellen Hawley will continue to be remembered at Freeman in such a beautiful and beneficial way.

Throughout the years to come, as Jim Hawley learns of the students who benefit from that selfless and brilliant tribute to his wife, it will surely bring a smile and warm his heart as he remembers his beloved Ellen. Love always remains and continues.
