Hope you can make it.
Here is our original story on what happened to Snoopy Taylor.
Help needed, because life can throw some really devastating punches.
We see it everyday in the news business.
It knocks people down and makes it very difficult just to carry on. Such is the case right now for Sue and Orlin Taylor, or ‘Snoopy’ as his friends call him.
Snoopy is a U.S. Army Veteran, a Vietnam War Veteran who developed a serious leg infection recently. It became so serious, doctors had to amputate Orlin’s right leg, above the knee.
Snoopy had a long hospital stay. And mounting medical bills. Family friend, Laura Nichols, has established a special ‘Snoopy Taylor’ benefit account at Veridian Credit Union.
The account has a goal of $4,000 to help the family through this very difficult time in their life.
Donations can be made at any branch of Veridian Credit Union under the ‘Snoopy Taylor’ account.
