A Maryville mother is asking for help in bringing Christmas cheer to her kids this holiday season.
Miranda Browning was the wife of 35-year-old Ryen Browning who was struck and killed by lightning in August while fishing.
Miranda said Ryen leaves behind four children: 11-year-old Lindsey, 9-year-old Issac, 4-year-old Maverick and 3-year-old Atreyue.
“(They’re) going through the first Christmas without dad, so my idea was to just have people in the community, throughout anywhere that we could reach, via Facebook, radio, any of that, to send the kiddos Christmas cards just to maybe brighten up their holiday just a little bit more,” Miranda said.
Cards can be sent to the following address:
P.O. Box 154
