How to Help Adil Shafi’s Family

POSTED 05/05/2014

Last month Adil Shafi, an industry veteran and major contributor to our trade association, died at the age of 51, leaving behind a wife and two children.  A special fund has been established to help the family.  The Association for Advancing Automation will be donating and I know that many of our members will be donating as well.  If you would like to contribute, here’s the link: http://www.gofundme.com/83jqm0

I think this is a great way of not only helping the family but also of honoring Adil’s legacy.  I know the family will appreciate donations of any size - our heart goes out to them in this time of need.
