    I received the following email from the CEO/President of HatsanUSA, Blaine Manifold.  I spent quite a bit of time with Cecil and crew during Shot Show 2019.  I've always felt that Cecil was like family.  It brings tears to my eyes when I try to imagine what Cecil & his wife are going through.  If you can find it in your heart, please say a prayer and/or donate to help them through this difficult time.  Thank you -Michael

     

     

    Dear Hatsan Family,

     

    Two years ago, we were fortunate to have Cecil accept a position with HatsanUSA and he soon moved his family from Havasu City, AZ to Northwest Arkansas.  During this time, you all have worked with and have had a chance to get to know Cecil.  Cecil is the guy that would drop everything to help someone in need.  He is also the guy, that would never ask for help if he was in need.

     

    On Sunday morning, March 10, 2019, Cecil’s wife Jennifer and son Ryan were traveling back to visit family in Havasu City.  Jennifer and Ryan were involved in a car accident on Interstate 40 as they crossed over into AZ from NM.  The Ford Expedition rolled several times. Jennifer was airlifted to a hospital in Flagstaff and is currently still in ICU.  She suffered a severely dislocated elbow (2 surgeries so far), severely broken ribs (which will require surgery), a punctured lung, and a severely dislocated toe which required surgery.  The good news is, doctors feel that she will recover physically.  Unfortunately, Ryan passed away at the scene.  In addition to the physical challenges, the emotional suffering from experiencing the loss of a child is unimaginable – and will never be fully overcome.    

     

    Cecil immediately flew to Flagstaff to be at Jennifer’s side early Monday morning.  They have no family or contact in Flagstaff and he is staying in a hotel and renting a car.   The arrangements for Ryan’s funeral are on hold for now until Jennifer is capable to provide input. 

     

    I humbly ask for your help to ease the burden for Cecil’s family during this time.  Firstly, prayers and thoughts are most important.  Secondly, the unexpected financial burden on the family is overwhelming and, understandably, not planned for.  If you can and feel compelled to help Cecil financially in this very difficult time, please use one of the below options to contribute:

    I can't even imagine his pain. I don't really do any of those options but if he has a PP account I would like to help out a bit. I don't have much but I can do something!

    So tragically sad. I can't imagine the pain of losing a son, I would be devastated if I lost mine. And a badly injured wife as well. I get paid tomorrow and will be making a donation.
