Casey's mom Andie was so excited to share what her and Casey's wife, Bethany, were able to do at Casey's church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church (Cherryville, NC), on 11/11. They held a dinner-concert fundraiser raised over $4,600 with over 100 donations. Anide said, "I'm so proud of Casey. He left such a positive role model for so many." Casey was music minister at the church.
What a wonderful legacy. The scholarship is now over $10,300!
