Lucasfilm Sends Care Package to Mourning Family

There has been a lot of negativity in the Star Wars fan base which has caused a drift between the cast and crew, and audiences. However, even with the disappointments floating all around, there have been remarkable stories of how the galaxy far, far away can help bring some joy to the most loyal fans, even while they face immense tragedy.

One fan, Raymond Camden, is remembering how Lucasfilm helped him cope with his wife’s loss by sending him and his children a care package full Star Wars merchandise after they lost their mom.

“About two months ago, I lost my wife of over twenty years. Saying it has been rough is a massive understatement, but I’m very lucky to have a strong support system here. (My wife was one of 8 kids.) A few weeks ago, a friend of mine reached out to the publicity department at Lucasfilm and let them know what happened and how I was a huge Star Wars fan.”

He explains that Lucasfilm paid attention to detail and left no stone unturned in the package.

“Yesterday I got two boxes full of gifts from them. They had called my friend to find out about my situation and my kids. They got their ages and every single one of them (I’ve got seven kids, yep, seven) got an incredible gift bag of merchandise. All the right size – all age appropriate. They even sent me some wonderful stuff as well.”
