I just learned about this family's tragic loss and contacted the family friend, who is trying to help, to tell her about the PE Foundation. She encouraged me to post a link to her web-page here:

I believe the family lives in Knoxville and that there are plans to set up a paypal account to help with donations for the new baby.
The family friend has also posted her email address on her web-page, so messages of support can be sent to the father and family.
