    As many of us know, 10GAGENUT (Joe Speroni) passed away recently. Joe is survived by his wife Marge Speroni. On another thread, the idea of a fundraiser for Marge was suggested.

    Joe was a well respected member here. He was always kind to others and spent a lot of time passing on his knowledge. He took the time to engage with anyone that needed help or wanted to learn. He truly enjoyed what he contributed here and I think that we should honor the man.

    I spoke with Marge today and she was overwhelmed with our generosity. She has been following the threads about Joe and she says it's been very heartwarming for her. She told me how much Joe enjoyed the forums and how much time Joe spent here. It was a very emotional conversation to say the least.

    With that said, cash donations will be accepted and all funds raised will go to directly to Marge. Since GoFundMe takes a percentage of the donations, I suggest that we not use that service. We have done another fundraiser where all funds were sent directly to me and dispersed in full upon completion of that fundraiser.

    If everyone is okay with me managing the donations, I would be honored to do that. I will accept PayPal donations as well as cash/check for those that do not want to use PayPal.

    PM me for my PayPal details or my mailing address. Please include your username so I can track who sends the money and how much was sent. That will allow transparency on the funds raised. Any amount you're able to donate will help tremendously. I will edit this post each time a donation is received.

    I'll start this off with my donation:

    @MJ Mark, I'll back your generous donation up with as much as I can right now.
    callinfowl promises to send MJ a $50 bill, as I don't do paypal or checks.

    Sticky the thread, Mark. Surely if we can have two stickies dedicated to “stories” and two other defunct stickies, we can make room for this great cause.
