    A memorial fund has been set up in the memory Matthew Hanson at Chase Bank in Bishop. Ivan lost his dearly loved son, a joy to many of us. He also lost his home, car and all of his belongings. Please help if you can.

    My heart aches for the loss of such a young child and for his family and especially his parents. I can’t comprehend the pain they are going thru and I really hope they eventually find peace. Such a tragic loss!
    Will there be a fund set up for the family to help with burial costs and the loss of the home?
