With all your support we have the 400 OG order covered. I wll place it this morning. No more donations needed guys. Thanks to all who stepped up.

If more donations do come in they will go for flowers. It would be nice to have some sent from Forums Forums members.
Awesome & WOW! Thanks for coordinating this.


What a great bunch of folks we have here.

Thanks John.

I placed the order. $407 worth of goodness from Olive Garden. Plenty of good eats. Appitizers, plenty of salad and Lasagna, chicken parmesan, Some type of Alfredo and more. Something for everyone.

Phyllis has already expressed so much gratitude for us helping her. She had no idea how she was going to take care of food for this, I'm so glad Gail thought to ask that question and with your alls help we could come to the rescue. You all are awesome!!!!!!

No more donations please. We got this covered. I'm picking up a condolences card this afternoon and sending it out from all of us on the forums. Food seems so much more appropriate than flowers to me. So I think we did the right thing.

Jerry's wife Phyllis sent the following:

Quote:
So sorry I couldn't get back with you sooner. Just wanted to let you know that the food was FANTASTIC!!!!! Could not have asked for anything better. You guys went Above and Beyond and I can never thank you enough!!!
Also the dust has settled and I got the donation that Glazier Sean promised. I have tallied up everything and we raised a total of $540.
Cost for Olive Garden was $407 and the cost for the condolences card was $5. So I spent a total of $412

$540 - $412 = $128.

I will send a check for that amount to Phyllis on Friday, once things have warmed up a bit around here.

Again, I want to thank you all for pitching in and helping the widow of a quality member who had been with us from the beginning of this forum. Jerry will sure be missed, and I am so proud of you all for helping ease the burden on his wife Phyllis. Kudos to all who donated. You are AWESOME!!!!!!

====================
Another thought we all might want to consider. I love our forum family. I think we all try to keep up with you all and things that are happening but what if the worst happens? How would your friends here on the forums know? We all take little breaks from the internet. So we don't panic if someone is MIA for a bit, but if something bad were to happen we would want to know. Please consider keeping a contact or two in the loop with your contact info off the forum just in case we need to check up on you. Had I not had Jerry's contact number we would not have known what was going on. We were a few months behind finding out that Big Al had passed. If we know, we can pay condolence properly. We've grown so close over the years it seems like the right thing to do.

I agree doc. When I had my accident the only way you all knew was because you had me as a friend on Facebook I believe. Otherwise I could have passed on and nobody here would have known.

I was a tad to quick on the trigger for the post above. Our favorite lawyer, JPR sent in $50 for the cause. Thanks JPR! He told me he was going to send it but I got him mixed up with another who was going to mail but ended up using paypal. So, now we have a total of $178 for Phyllis. Sure glad I had not mailed that out yet. I'm hibernating until it warms up. That should be Friday if the weather dude is correct.

"Favorite lawyer". Now there's an oxymoron.

I'm just glad we all could help comfort Phyllis.

Hey guys. BIG KUDOS to all of you that opened your wallet to help support Phyllis (Jerry's widow). She got the check I sent out last week and called this morning wanting to be sure you all were thanked and thanked again for all we did for her. There is power in numbers and each of us giving a bit made a huge difference to her. She even said the money helps with her being in the between stages of no paycheck or insurance check etc. She was so appreciative and genuinely touched by our actions.

Together we were able to touch Phyllis's heart and help her during one of the toughest times in her life. She said in June they would have been married 30 years, that more than half of her life had been spent with Jerry. He was her best friend and her life. She is going through such a major life transition. I am very proud of all of you who helped us make a real difference to her in her time of need. THANK You!!!!!!
