Several forum members have asked me privately how they could make a donation to cover funeral expenses or whatever the greatest need was in terms of Dan's passing.

Let me say that Dan was not a wealthy man. He and his wife lived in an apartment on the east side town that was by no means a wealthy area. It is in the area of the old Liberace museum. He did his best to make it with another hit casino game but lightning never did strike twice in Dan's case, although he still has some irons in the fire, including a game I developed with him. Lacking a dependable source of income there, he recently was forced back to work as a dealer, despite back problems that make it difficult for him to stand for long periods of time. Before returning to dealing, he opened a legitimate Thai massage parlor. Dan wasn't the type to sing the blues about money (like I am) but from what I've read between the lines, it has has not been doing well either. He kept asking me to pay it a visit and I never did.

Furthermore, I think he wore the same shirt every single time I saw him. Or maybe he just had lots of them that looked the same.

So, Dan's widow could definitely use some help to defray some of the expenses she is facing, not to mention the loss of Dan's income. She asked if I would lead a collection of Dan's friends that I'm able to reach. So, I am.

I'm flexible on the method of any donation. Paypal, check, cash, whatever. Feel free to include a personal note and I'll be sure to relay it. The official Mass for Dan is this Thursday but I'm not imposing that as a hard and fast deadline. However, it would be nice to have a gesture to make at the time. If you prefer to give more directly, I can help advise on how to do that.

Anyone interested, please PM me.

Thank you for your time.

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Obviously, I'm going to participate. I hope to have something in the mail to you tomorrow so you get it in time to hand to her on Thursday.

But although I met her twice, and heard others mention her at the memorial service, what is Dan's wife's name/spelling?

Actually, what name should I put on the check, and is there a different name to put on the personal note that I'll include?

Thanks.

Mike, thanks for the PM with the mailing address.

I sent a donation yesterday and enclosed a personal note. While composing it, it occurred to me that I actually met Prapaisri at least 4 times. Very sweet lady.

Ya know, guy, this post is just...tacky. Hits me really wrong. Don't tie one to the other. (Yes, I saw you said you'd do this the other day. I shrugged that one off. But here you are again, so...)

It's not cool to use this thread and this purpose to whine about a welch. I challenge you to make the contribution now.

Maybe she skipped the middle man and paid off the debt owed to Dancer....

I totally agree with Babs on this. Actually, I think "Tacky" is an understatement.

Was Dan involved in the bet? This is the first I've heard of a welch (I don't follow every thread), but knowing Dan's character, I know the answer to that question.

Therefore, why punish Dan's widow?


Either make a donation or STFU.
