Fund Raising For Al Bodine's Mother

Postby Billet » Sun Feb 05, 2006 10:22 pm

Since no one can get to the Politics branch, to read about this in the OP about Al Bodine's death, I'm starting this OP in the lounge.

Al's Mother (who is sick with cancer, herself) is having to spend $8,000 for Al's funeral.

If anyone would like to donate money to help defray her expenses, I'm accepting donations, again.

PM me for instructions on how to safely send me your credit card information.

Just back from the visitation and taking Justinian back to the airport - the Stew flowers were beautiful

Good job, Incognita

I'm so glad you guys were there. I'm constantly awed by & thrilled to know (however superficially) the people of political stew. Were there many people there?

I'm sending something to Vera directly. Nice of you to gather money, though, Billet.

I'm kind of wiped out - and Incognita probably can talk about this better, she's been the one doing all the legwork

there were people in and out - his Mother is just what I'd have expected - there were people there from a bar he used to hang out at - and we were there - other groups of friends and family we didn't meet - his Mom came to dinner with the 4 of us

don't know, I can't put my thoughts together on it - but I'm thinking about Incognita, Justinian, and Cowtown and they're pretty special people - something about what I always say, it makes you bitter or it makes you better - they chose better - I'm just as fortunate to know them as any of us ever was to know Al

time for a good cry - ciao for now

Al's mother is a remarkable woman, I'm so glad that we had some time to spend with her at dinner. She was so impressed with the kindness and generosity of all the "internet" people. The cards, pictures, letters, donations, etc really meant the world to her, and to Al.

I'd told her that my first conversation with Al had been just after his return from Mexico, to which she said "he really loved it there. My only regret is that Al hadn't an opportunity to see more of the world."

thank you Hats, incognita and cowtown. You really honored Allan today, I'm so happy to have been part of that.

I'm also sending something directly to Al's mum, but thanks Billet for yet again being the Stew's CFO. And thanks to everyone who went to the service on our behalf.

Sad news. I, too, wish that Al had seen more of the world.

Keep the donations coming in!

I have raised $705.00 so far on credit cards. A couple of people are also sending checks, and I don't know the amount of the checks, yet.

Thanks to everyone who is helping so far!

Just in from the funeral. It was very nice, Vera is lucky to have such good friends.

Yesterday, Hats, Justinian, Cowtown & I went to the visitation and then took Vera to dinner afterwards. It was nice to see how she & Cowtown clicked, they have similar roots so they were talking about that a lot. Cowtown gave me cash to give to Vera, I added it to money I was giving to her & put it into a donation envelope & marked it from "The Stewbies". The flowers were a beautiful standing spray at the head of the coffin. I gave Vera a print out of the condolences thread from the PS branch too.

Thank you Billet for being the CFO for all this.

I bet with the $705 Billet's sending and the money some of the rest of us are sending independently she'll have well over $1000 from the stewbies to help defray the costs.

Smish, funerals are so expensive, even if you want a low key funeral, it would be at least $6K.

I wonder how Vera will handle it all, she being so ill herself, and then with her grief of losing Al and the stress of the funeral expenses.

When you lose someone, you want to honor them with the best you can do.

I hope that we can raise more than $1K to help her out. There are a lot of people here and many have bragged about how successful they are, then contribute, successful people.

Yes, I know they're expensive.

I'm sure, even if we can't cover it all, Vera will be thankful for anything we can send.

Please do remember that everyone is not of the same means around here.

I'm sure the people that can spare the money are making arrangements to do so.

We certainly don't need to be judging people on whether or not they have something to contribute to this fund at this particular time. And, if someone can't contribute, it doesn't necessarily mean that they didn't appreciate and don't miss Al terribly.

I agree. I was also told by PM, earlier today, that she was given $200 in cash the day of the viewing, which can also be added to the total sent by the members of PS.

You know, I am sorry if I came off as being judgemental, I didn't mean to, I know that almost all of you are kind and giving and do help as much as you can.

In fact, this board is incredibly generous and caring.

I never meant to imply that any of you weren't. But I guess that was the impression I gave and for that, I can only offer my most humble apologies.

I think that Zara and Smish misunderstood what I was saying, I don't have a whole lot of cash either but I do what I can and I know you do too. We all do what we can, if that means just expressing support verbally then that is what we do.

Sometimes I don't express myself properly and suspect this is one of those cases.

My apologies to those who misunderstood what I was saying.

I think I really put my foot in it without meaning to.

Sorry.

I just hope that Vera, who is undergoing her own personal health issues, and who has lost her beloved son, takes some solace in the fact that her son was much loved.

I cannot think of much else to say.

auntie? i think there might be another misunderstanding here. i'm very sorry if you think this was really all about you when in fact my root concern was really based on a comment that was made during a previous fundraising when it was suggested that all the donor names be posted to shame those who didn't or couldn't give any money. the word "selfish" was tossed out and i knew how upset ppl were by that remark, so i was really just hoping that they didn't feel the same pressure. i realize now, my response didn't address that b/c i was just trying to be diplomatic.

i know your intentions were truly heartfelt and you seem like a very caring person so i apologize if you felt slighted in any way by my general worried remark. this was a wonderful cause and i appreciate the efforts of all involved. thank you.

You're right about that Billet. That's wonderful news.
