NCM benches are $5000, and I have little doubt this forum can raise that. I'm definitely in.

Given that BR2 is ~6 months away, I'm sure the bench could be done in time and unveiled during the event, and hopefully Steve's family will be able and inspired to attend too. Just as much we hope Kathy Maguire can return too.

We don't forget our forum family members.

My condolences to Steve's family.

Knowing the generosity of the people on this forum I have no doubt a bench can be done for Steve and my family will gladly contribute what we can to make it happen. The bench for Bill is awesome!!! Jim did a wonderful job designing it. I will most definitely be at BRII and for the unveiling of a bench for Steve and to visit Bill's bench once again.

Much love to everyone! Hug your loved ones tight.....you never know when your time or theirs will come.....

Kathy

I checked with the NCM. The person to talk to about benches is not in on the weekends. I will call again Monday.

Looks like we have quite a few donors, we need to capture that while they are still feeling it!

Who's got an acct we could donate to, both now and continuing until we get the funds needed?
Didn't Dixie do the last one? Would he be willing to strap on again and take the lead on this? Or snide?

If all else fails, I'll take the lead and gather all the donations in my paypal acct (and take other payments), and turn all over to the one arranging for the bench when enough is collected.

Or, a moderator could start a "VB donation account" for such occasions.

I donated for IrishMac and feel privileged to be able to donate again. Once everything is set up, I'll make a donation.

I'm pretty sure _I_ don't have that kind of power!

But if I did, I would!
