An Important Announcement from St. John Bosco High School
SJB Update

Dear Bosco Family,

"The Lord is Watching Over Us. Let Us Leave Ourselves in His Hands and Trust in Him."

St. John Bosco

We write to share some tragic news about the Gance family, who are members of the Bosco and Saint Joseph's communities. Michael, a 2017 graduate, Lauren, a sophomore at Saint Joseph High School, and their parents, Jeff and Glendale, were involved in a devastating car accident that resulted in the death of the parents. Jeff is an alumnus from the class of 1986. Lauren and Michael have been recovering from their injuries at Loma Linda University Medical Center. Michael has undergone two surgeries to treat significant injuries but is expected to make a full recovery.

Michael and Lauren's older brother, Jeff Gance '09, is leading the family through this incredibly trying time. He wanted to express his gratitude for all of the support from the Bosco and Saint Joseph's communities and welcomes visits from close friends over the next few weeks. He asks that visitors please contact him directly to facilitate their visits so the family is not overwhelmed at the hospital.

We ask that you join us in prayer for the Gance family during this sad and devastating time. We pray that our Lord Jesus grant Jeff and Glendale eternal life and that Michael, Lauren, and Jeff receive the comfort of his Grace and loving presence. We pray also for strength and patience as Michael and Lauren continue to recover from their injuries.

The Bosco administration will continue to support and communicate with the Gance family and provide updates as they become available. A Go Fund Me account has been established to provide financial assistance for Michael and Lauren that can be accessed by clicking here. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact Dr. De Larkin at May God Bless the Gance family.

St. John Bosco, Pray for Us.
