Re: my  gofundme page, and all the help and support .https://www.gofundme.com/pick-needs-help

Geesh , Where do I start ,? .. I mean , how do you thank people  for giving  your spouse  the chance at quality of life you thought  may be out of reach on your own ? , not to mention the stress relief of a plumbing disaster, and the big worry of “how”. Then to see a rope descending into the hole of debt  you are in , and outreached hands above.  Seriously? How do you repay something like that?

I’m deeply moved by the actions of members here.  Absolutely stunned at the generosity offered,  simply  due to someone seeing me vent and bitch in chat early in the morning. to this outpour of help and well wishes . and a go-fund-me page set up for me . I truly am in a bit of a daze.

Val  (My wife) )  is even more so stunned  .. She keeps saying . “wow , these people don’t even know me .. what the heck ?  what amazing people .“   Then breaks down in a relief induced cry release.  I have also experienced that weird happy relief cry a few times in the past few days . (And twice so far while typing this.)

What can we say .. but ,..

We both thank you all from the bottom of our hearts  ..

 (and Val adds  …

 “and from the top of my lungs.)   :’-)

You all are the best folks on the planet, and the nation is truly a magical place that not only builds guitars, …….but builds friendship, character, bridges, unity, support, and long lasting relationships.

Thank you.  Nation.

Special thanks to Dr BLUES  , Whose efforts went beyond setting up  the page ,  but involved  jumping through some hoops , joining  facebook , and more than yall  know .

 And  A nod to  Ben  and Shane  for the multi  share and even  editing  cbn. Wow .

And again to you all.

I  just can’t believe this .

Pick & Val.

PS .. I apologize if this “mass thank you letter” may seem impersonal ,  Between cleaning out the basement ,helping val , and answering  what emails I can in-between ,  this is more-so that I don’t miss thanking any of you. And the fact that I can’t comment on the gofundme page without an fb account . Thanks again to each and every one of you.

I felt helpless and hopeless watching someone I love wither away, with labored breathing and rapid weight loss .  not to mention  the plumbing incident and debt ontop.

I no longer feel helpless, nor hopeless.  Because of all your helpfulness and shared hope.

THANK YOU  ALL!

Pick.

Pick and Val,

Not been on here in a long time, so I’m late to this news. Been out on the Interwebs just this morning pushing SwampWitch to another picker who likes resos, so I showed him the vid of the Elemental, and me rockin’ the Witch bobby pin fretted build.

Not in a position to send cash right now, but I most definitely will offer up prayers of healing and strength for both of you while at choir practice tonight.

Thanks Oily , That helps a bunch . ;-)
