Help a Brother Instructor
« on: December 23, 2016, 02:44:57 PM »
Mike Daniels, Mellow Yellow, is having some health problems and can use some assistance.

He's been helping keep Colorado going the last few years. Let's now help him.

There's a gofundme page setup with the details. About to go kick in a few bucks myself.

Thank you, Scuzzy.

Mike is my dad.  If you want/need to contact me, email is best, but phonecalls and texts are OK too.

Wow!  Thank you guys, so much!  The outpouring of support and generosity is overwhelming.  Your help is going to make a hard time a lot less stressful for us, and I cannot possibly thank you enough.

Bump.

Mike contacted me yesterday. Bills are higher than expected - as you can well imagine.

Just kicked in a few more bucks myself and hope you guys can do so also. Even just a few bucks helps.

Jesus told us to help the sick, Consider it done Scuzzy.
"When men's rules are Honorable and Just I will follow them. When I find the laws tolerable, I will tolerate them. When I find the rules obnoxious, I will ignore them. When I find evil imposed or codified, I will War against it. My Lord has made it known and understood to me that to accept the gift of freedom I will alone bear the full responsibility everything I do, or chose not to do." Henry

 Thoughts and prayers to Mike and family.   I have walked this path with one of my dearest,  I can share your feeling.    Keep up with the fighter spirit and take it one step at a time. 

Get well soon, Mike!    Hope to see you on the forum again soon.

With a pic like that how can you resist?

Prayers and a donation sent. 

See you on the line soon.

I'd noticed that. Man - those were from way back. Got a stack on them in my closet and still wear them.

Anyhow all y'all - even say $5 or $10 bucks to Mike helps. Even if it's not much it still says I care and I'm thinking of you. And yeah - I know times are tough.
