Evan Tanner Memorial Fund

Courtesy of Team Tanner's Kyria McBrayer-Christison:

Hello everyone. I wish this email was one of those that I would send with news of the next fight or the next tshirt..........

I spoke with Evan's family today and they have finalized Evan's memorial. His memorial will be held in Amarillo, TX on September 27th at 2:00 p.m. at the Civic Center. The Civic Center is located at 401 South Buchanan Street.

If anyone wishes to send flowers or cards, they can be sent to Jeff Tanner, 504 S Harrison Street, Amarillo TX 79101. The family has also set up a memorial fund with The Amarillo National Bank. If you are interested in donating to his memorial fund, please email me for details.

I have received so many emails about purchasing a shirt, beanie, etc. I do not know Evan's family's plan for Team Tanner so I do not have the information you are looking for. The family has a lot to absorb and also needs time to mourn the loss of Evan so please respect that. If and when they decide to move ahead with shirts, etc, I have kept all of the emails and someone will be able contact them with the details.

I want to say thank you to everyone. This adventure has blessed my life. Being a part of Team Tanner and getting to know so many people who believed in Evan like I have has been an amazing experience that I will cherish for my whole life. Evan was so many different things to so many different people but the one thing holds true, he touched our lives in a way that only Evan was capable of doing. At times I feel so sad and I look around and wonder how can life just keep moving on but it does and I know he would not want sadness for any of us. I hope that his words, his message will be heard and will carry on forever and change the lives of so many others as it has changed all of ours. Again, thank you for this privilege.

As always,
Kyria-Proud member of Team Tanner
