Condolences - From ChiefsPlanet

Extended opportunity to Sept 14th. Please give. We're at $240 so far and this site can do much better.

In the past 2 months our site has lost two longtime members who were great people and contributed to this site over the years. Each of these men were in their 40's.

Currently, the Lounge is named for a man named Dan Edwards (aka CrazyHorse) who had fought lung disease for a very long time and finally succumbed to a second transplant which failed earlier this month.

Previously, Mike Hall (aka MadMax) died after a lengthy battle with liver disease on June 30th. We named the Lounge after MadMax for the entire month of July.

Several current members know these men in real life and some were even introduced to ChiefsPlanet by them.

We used to do nice things for people more frequently when the site was smaller and we haven't done anything like this for years. Dan was a Chiefs fan but spent enough time friendly trolling over at OrangeMane.com that they pooled their money and sent he and his wife on a vacation prior to his first lung transplant more than 4 years ago. We did nothing at that time.

I know there are some financial needs in both of these cases and these were extraordinary individuals who were taken far too early. Mike left a couple of minor children. Dan's son is grown.

We'd like to accept gifts which will be passed on to the families of these members who were taken tragically far too soon. Dan's family will utilize these funds to help pay for funeral expenses. Mike was a personal friend of FlopNuts and he will ensure that the money given for Mike will go directly towards the care of the children and/or their college fund. If you're unable or unwilling to give, please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.

If you choose to send a gift via paypal, use the button below. l total the moneys collected and share those numbers on the 4th. Please specify how you would like your gift to be earmarked. If no instructions are specified, it will be split 50/50. Thanks for your generosity.

Personal checks can be mailed to me or I will provide an address via PM.

I know Mike would be humble here, and I know his Mother who has the kids would be eternally grateful and humbled as well. Class act Phil, but those who know you know this your norm. Thanks.

PM me. I'll have a name and address for checks. I will facilitate paypal donations and write a check for what comes in. The personal checks will go straight to Mike's mother (who cares for the kids) and to Dan's wife.

That's fine as a concept, but I'm wondering where the line is?

Just members? Long time members who post regularly? Spouses? Parents? Children?

That's a good question. We have a lot of members. Obviously, not every death is going to mean we put up a solicitation like this.

You and your wallet decide where the line is. If neither of these guys inspired you and you don't feel compelled to throw down a few bucks then don't. I'm not going to spend my time organizing this each time a member of this site dies, obviously. But these two were particularly tragic, too soon, and there is a need for donations. I feel comfortable the money sent isn't going to be injected into somebody's arm or used for a trip to Vegas. Obviously, a guy like Logical would have qualified for something like this if there had been a need communicated. But we honor his memory in other ways because he was financially well off.

Holy shit, I want to go kick something after learning this. Every time something like this happens, I wonder why the good people have to go early.
I am going to miss Crazyhorse on here, and had truly wanted to meet him in person.
I wasn't aware of the MadMax passing either, will post again when I collect myself.

I've spoken with the kids grandmother who is raising them. She has no problem with people sending check donations to Phil or even directly to her personally. If you'd like to mail direct you can PM me for her name and address. 14 and 16 is awfully expensive for someone who's already done it in generations passed and didn't expect this to happen again. She has asked for nothing, but I know first hand it would be incredibly helpful. It's much appreciated but she wouldn't want anyone to take any mustard off their hotdog on her account so no one should stress themselves to do it.

Donation on the way.

I think setting a line where this step is taken is fraught with land mines. But, I think we can safely set the bar to at least long time members of the community in good standing.

I agree. I know we've done this several times over the years. One was strange in that a father/son duo in good standing here had their wife/mother become diagnosed terminal. They were open about how their homelife was suffering so we collected some money and sent some pizzas to lessen the load on the sick lady. Then we sent the rest to hire a cleaning crew to come out. That lady is still alive and kicking which is awesome but it left questions about the contribution. No, I'm not going to identify them. There's really nothing to be embarrassed about but my intention isn't to finger them at all.

Then there was another member collecting money for himself. We'll never allow that again.

No issue with that one. I donated to that and I feel really food that she made it. A true blessing for that Family.
