The Magic Valley continues to support Ryan Franklin's family during their incredible loss. Ryan lost his life in an accident south of Kimberly on May 18th.

The amazing support this family has received is proof of why we love living in the Magic Valley. Our community rallies together in times of need. Numerous people have stepped up and made donations to Ryan Franklin's Go Fund Me page and to a bank account set up in his's wife's name, Amie Franklin, at Farmers National Bank.

The Go Fund Me page is currently at $74,212. Paul Smith created the account and hopes to raise $100,000.00 to support the family. Not only have community members donated money to the Franklin family but they have offered kind words, a tribute drive down Blue Lakes and a tribute to Ryan with a ghost bike and a cross placed at his place of death. Photos of Ryan's ghost bike are in the above gallery courtesy of Paul Smith.
