As many of you know, Smallie_Stalker, Jim, lost his wife in a very quick illness.

Without going into great detail, Jim could use some help. This has put a serious financial burden on him (as it would anyone). Jim does not have a lot of family close by to help out. What I'm getting at is Jim will have to use public transportation to get to and from in dealing with all the final preparations of his wife's passing. 

I'm not asking anyone to give anything they can't absolutely afford but if we pass the virtual hat, I think we can help Jim with some extra funds to purchase Ubers and Taxis versus waiting at a bus stop. If we can get him a few dollars for food, travel, or necessities around the house we can make a big difference for him right now.

If you are in a position to give $10-$20 or more please send a PayPal or Venmo to mike@ultimatebass.com and I will get it forwarded to Jim. If you would rather send it directly to Jim, send me a message and I'll get you his information.

I know as a community we can make a big difference for Smallie_Stalker, Thank You.

I want to send out a huge thank you to everyone that has donated, we've raised quite a bit in a short time. I will be sending these funds to him at COB tomorrow.

Again Thank You, and if you haven't donated but want to, please send funds to mike@ultimatebass.com on PayPal or Venmo before 4 PM tomorrow.

I just received a message and a PayPal from Mike. I don't really have adequate words to thank you all enough. Not sure if this will make sense but In the midst of all my grief and sorrow I feel very blessed.

I still have so much to do. It will be a few weeks before I can get back on here full time and give proper thanks to all.
