Hi Everyone,

Last week, George Matos, Sean's dad, thanked us for all our thoughts and prayers for his family. He is currently trying to raise funds so that Sean's wife and mom can accompany him to Portugal with Sean's ashes. Here is a message from him:

Dear DPC members,

My name is George Matos. JawnyRico was one of my greatest gifts from God, an
only son. I want to take this time to thank all of you for your kind words
and prayers. He loved all of you and always welcomed your kind advice when
it came to his pictures. One of my sons final requests was to take his ashes
to where I, his father, was born, the Azores, Portugal. We are trying hard
to fulfill his wishes. We live in the USA, so this poses a financial
challenge for my wife and Sean's widow. My brother has offered to pay my
way, however we are asking for those who were touched by his soul to help
share in his last request. Be assured, as Jehovah God as my witness, the
fund would be ended when the amount for the trip would be reached.

If you would like to make a donation;
Please send a check or money order to my care:

George Matos
281 Oxford Avenue
Akron, Ohio 44310

or if Paypal would be easier, we have a Paypal account set up at (
jawnyrico@yahoo.com )

account # is above email
JawnyRico's loving and saddened father,
George Matos

I'll use money order if that is OK. My condolances to you and your family and safe travel wishes.

I wonder how soon he wants to make plans?

I'm sure that we could raise a LOT in Calgary just by passing the hat after a few drinks...
