A gift for Cecilia

A guest post from friends Steve and Nancy Skancke:

We are saddened to hear the news from Julie that the earthly life of our Christian brother Patrick is nearing an end, but know that God and Jesus are welcoming him to Heaven with a new, disease-free, body.  And we know that Team Patrick will continue to pray and care for Julie and Ceci even after Patrick leaves us in this world.

Many have asked how they might help Julie and Ceci financially.  As a result, an account has been set up at Fidelity for the health and well-being of Ceci (including her living and education expenses).  Julie’s name is on the account with Ceci as the beneficiary. You can contribute directly to that Fidelity account; the instructions are outlined below.  In addition, Patrick and Julie set up a college education account for Ceci and you can designate your gift for that account if you so choose.    

Checks for the Fidelity Account should be made out to, and can be sent to:
Fidelity Investments, FBO:  Julie Cate Kelly”
In the memo line, please reference Account No. X65520322

Mail checks to:
Fidelity Investments
P. O. Box  770001

To wire transfer funds to the Fidelity account, have your bank send the wire to:
J. P. Morgan Chase, NY
Routing No. 021000021
Credit to National Financial Services LLC (no. 066196–221)
For the benefit of account:  Julie Cate Kelly
For final credit to account no.  X65520322
[you can also see the wire instructions here  -- be sure to use the brokerage account wire transfer information from this web page].

If you have questions about deposits to the Fidelity account, you can call Fidelity at 1-800-544-6666, dial “0” at the prompt, and reference the account number

If it is easier, you are also welcome to write a check to the Fidelity account (written to Fidelity Investments, FBO:  Julie Cate Kelly, with reference to Account No. X65520322, as noted above) and send the check (along with your email address and/or phone number) to:  Steve and Nancy Skancke, 833 Nethercliffe Hall Road, Great Falls, Virginia  22066.  We will confirm receipt to you and will ensure that the check is immediately deposited.

If you wish to contribute to the Ceci College Fund, please send to us a check made out to “Julie Cate Kelly” with “Ceci Education Account” indicated in the Memo section of the check. (Mail to the Skanckes' address above.)  We will make the deposit and confirm receipt back to you.  

Please don’t hesitate to call (703-759-4927) or email us if you have any questions.

Thank you for your continuing support and prayers for Patrick, Julie and Ceci, and for Patrick’s family.  We know that it means a lot to them. 

God Bless you and them, 
Steve and Nancy Skancke
