  •  Thank you very much COwoman and Tina Braxton (14+ / 0-)

    I am thrilled you were able to get there to verify the circumstances of his family for us. What may have been a struggle for the group to accept based on just the diaries and messages we had recieved and published became a Jubilee for Richard's family because of your willingness to go verify that storyline for us.

    Tina Braxton also pushed to make this happen. If not for her reaching out, the diary The family of Richard Myers needs our help would never have been written to start this ball rolling.

    And a big thank you to all those that dug deep and found something to to contribute to help the family of Fellow Worker Richard Myers.

    •  Thank YOU for sounding the (11+ / 0-)

      alert that started the ball rolling.

      What an utterly amazing community this is!

      I'm a Democrat - I believe that government has a positive role to play in the lives of ordinary people.

        I saw a need, felt strongly enough about help the family in their time of crisis, and was lucky enough to ask COwoman if she could verify the story for the community.

        I knew the story was true, but I wanted to do all in my power to ally any fears of fraud the commenters had. When I saw in a comment that she was nearby, I messaged her with the request she check out the particulars. A fortuitous request, she exceeded her quest many times over.

        She did a great job with the diary and the pay pal account info. I am glad she set that up, so that she could hand deliver the money. To mail it from where I am (Erie, PA) would probably be pushing the time limit.
