Folks. Inspired by Van Le and his generosity, check out my thread in the black market where I have 5 side curtains ready to ship. All 5 need homes. All proceeds from their sale will go into Sam's Go Fund me.
This is my step ladder. I never got to know my real ladder.

Just an update: Spoke with Sam's wife last night and she is doing about as well as could be expected. She is extremely grateful for the support of this community. Sam did not want a traditional funeral. He preferred to have a memorial ride to celebrate his life. Sam's friend Archie is pulling this together and I will publish details as soon as I get them. The Allen family life right on the outskirts of Wilmington NC.

I was a little embarrassed I could only do $20, but something is better than nothing for those in need during tough times.
We appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Sold a side curtain. Another $80 chipped in. That should put it up to the original goal. I still have four more for sale to help this. See my thread in the black market folks. Thanks!

Hey folks. We're keeping the GoFundMe donation site open for Sam's wife for another few days. We're looking to build the fund to offset medical costs for Robin. Still no info on the memorial ride for Sam. Will keep you posted.
