Many forum members may not have read the thread on the serious accident that happened back on June 28th to the Matt Ford Sales Manager, Jimmy Thornhill. On his way to work at Matt Ford, he was involved in a serious accident that resulted in him losing his left leg. He was in the hospital for over a month and passed away yesterday after many complications with losing a lot of blood and his body rejecting transfusions.

With all of the extreme medical expenses and his family in dire needs, Ryan Matt has setup a Memorial Fund for him and his family with a GoFundMe account you can access on the Matt Ford facebook site (www.facebook.com/mattfordsalesMO/). The dealership is contributing matching funds for this account so if you would like to contribute to this fund it would be greatly appreciated.

Jimmy was very helpful in getting all of the final paperwork and numbers for Matt Ford customers and especially ones who ordered Transits. We lost a valuable member of the Matt Ford family and he will be greatly missed.

Getting close to 1/4 of the goal of $10,000. They are having a Memorial Service for him next Saturday, August 17th in Lee Summit, MO. More details on the Matt Ford website. Instead of sending any flowers, best to send them cards and even make a contribution to this fund with a note as well.
