Funerals for the Faultless Healthcare Linen employees lost as a result of the reported Loy-Lange explosion on Monday, April 3, 2017 – Tonya Gonzalez-Suarez and Christopher Watkins, who were married to each other, and their friend, Clifford Lee – began this week.
Soon this stunning and heartbreaking event will fade from the headlines though the families’ sorrow and the sudden burden of costs involved linger, said Faultless President Susan Witcher in a news release.
The Faultless family has worked privately with our employees’ families in providing direct support, Witcher added. In addition, the public outpouring of assistance – as evidenced in the Sons & Daughters of Soulard’s GoFundMe page, https://www.gofundme.com/faultless-explosion-victims-fund – and countless other acts of kindness, will relieve our employees’ families unexpected and keenly felt expenses in food, travel, lost work and wages and more.
New offers of service, support, comfort and sympathy arrive daily. We are amazed and humbled by the caring response of the St. Louis community, Witcher said. Our deep and heartfelt thanks go out to all who have made themselves known to us as well as those who in anonymity have come alongside our company and our people in a time of need.
