Ways to Give to the Klicka Family

The Klickas have been overwhelmed by the many expressions of love and care they have received. Thank you again for your prayers to a faithful Creator on their behalf. Some of you have also asked how to help the Klickas, financially and otherwise. As a result, we have two direct avenues of giving to the Klicka family that you can consider utilizing, and a third avenue of tax-deductible giving to the Klickas' church and its benevolence program:

1. As usual, direct gifts and donations for the family may be sent to their home address at the following address:

6779 Riley Rd.
Warreton, VA 20187

2. Corey Cheney generously established an account for the Klicka family through which you may electronically donate funds:

Dear Tracy and family,
We have never met, but we have been following your CaringBridge blog since HSLDA "e-lerted" us to pray for Chris. We have grieved along with you, but we've also been blessed and encouraged by the things we've read there. You are all in our prayers as you go through these last days with your husband and father. We're praying that you will experience the supernatural comfort of our Lord.

Dearest Tracy,
We are all grieving with you. The Lord come in and fill your void with His own sweet Self. I am so grateful for the vision you received; I know that it must be accurate. There is so much more reality that we cannot see than what we see with these temporary, imperfect eyes. Thank the Lord that this whole phase is but for a moment, and then we can all enter Chris' 'world,' and partake of his eternal joy forever.

Peace, refreshing of spirit, and the peace that passes all understanding be granted to you now, dear sister. Your family in the Lord is one with you in all of this, and in experiencing your loss. We all so thankful, too, for Chris' life and for what he accomplished for us. We are glad that he is whole again, and forever free of suffering. We hold you, both in our love and before the throne of grace.

May God be with your family in this time of missing your dear husband and father. Although you know he is rejoicing in the presence of the Lord, it will be hard not to miss him deeply.

Thank you so much for being true examples of followers of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May He bless you and comfort you during this time of great grief.

Dear Tracy and family,
We had the privilege of homeschooling two of our sons through junior and senior high, and then our youngest son for 11 years. I don't know where we would have been without the work that Chris did for homeschooling. Today, all three of our sons our serving the Lord and love Him passionately.

I pray that the God of all comfort will wrap each one of you in those strong arms of love and that you will continually feel His presence.

In His Love, Brenda Arnold

Dear Klicka family,
I have been following your 'life' through emails from our Home Education Group in NJ, and wish to express my condolences, letting you know that I've been praying for God's mercy, peace and comfort be showered upon your family. Though we know your beloved is in the presence of Christ, there is a mourning process - please count on my continued prayers. May our heavenly Father be nearer than ever before, and may His love shine through your lives.

Praying for you all and rejoicing with you and crying for you all at your loss.

I am so thankful, as a homeschooling mother, to have had Chris on our side. We live in PA and about 7 years ago when we were trying to change the law here, Chris came and gave testimony before the Education Committee for the state house of representatives. I remember how calm he was and full of insight about home educators and homeschooling.

He will be missed. Makes us long for heaven more to have loved ones there.

Dear Tracy and Family,

Our family has such a deep respect and admiration for Chris. He defended and supported our Home Educating efforts in Michigan with passion and zeal. We've schooled our 3 children for 6 years now and we probably only know a small percentage of how his efforts have truly paved the way for us to freely school our boys in Michigan.
What stands out the most for me, not only did Chris have influence and determination, the love for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and for his family, far outweighs any other achievement or activity that would've impressed me. In corporate america, I see family and character put to the wayside for power and money. I had heard Chris speak a few times and his heartfelt message of family and Christ has stuck with me from the first time I heard him.
We will continue to pray and lift your family to the Lord.

Dave and Gail Henig and boys

We remember with great joy staying with your family when we came to Virginia to do writing workshops with homeschooling kids several years ago. We felt so honored to witness your beautiful children and your journey as a couple first hand. Thank you for sharing Chris' passage into heaven in such a beautiful way, even though you value your privacy at this time. With gratefulness and appreciation, Dave & Neta Jackson (Trailblazer authors)
