Hello, My name is Tamara, I want to send my prayers to the Griffith Family. I am reaching out to the family cause i know of someone who was the orginal & 1 responder to the flood that day cause he works at the Brilliant Boat Club on Allegheny River Blvd. He is having a hard time as well with this as he was on top the car of your family looking for victims to safe, not being aware that anyone was in the car. Once found out, he had been very shaken over it & hard to get pass or out his mind. Once we heard of the fundraiser yesterday.. it was too late to take part in it. I would like if possible to help gain some type of closeure for most importantly your famlly but also for my boyfriend to help move on pass this trying time. I can be reached at 412-330-7391. Thank you & God Bless
