Thoughts and prayers go out to Steve Arthurs and his family.
Steve's 97 year-old grandfather, Fred Arthurs (pictured here with Steve after a feature win in 2011) and his aunt, Suzanne Smith both passed away recently.
We also extend our deepest sympathy to Chris Zuver and Lisa Peterson. (Chris is the director of the ULMS and UEMS series.) For anyone who may not be aware, here is a post he made on Facebook...
I write this with the most heaviest heart that a parent should bear. As all of you know.. the past 9 months Lisa Peterson and I have been waiting for arrival of our twins Rayce Alan Zuver and Zoiee Renee Zuver. We are sad to report that upon their arrival there was something went wrong and we lost our precious angels to god. Lisa and I want to thank our immediate family members and family for their thoughts and prayers and we ask for privacy as we regroup and refocus on our family life.
Rayce and Zoiee ... Daddy, mommy and your brothers and sisters love you and your in good hands now and you have wonderful grandparents guiding you till we meet you.
Rayce Alan Zuver & Zoiee Renee Zuver - May 30, 2015
And further info from a close friend of theirs...
I have the address for anyone who would like to send a card/donation to Chris Zuver and Lisa Peterson. I think that as members of the racing family we should all show how much we care at their time of loss. I spoke with Chris and he said it was fine to post the address.
