Hey Mal, thanks for posting that, hopefully it will help the nay-sayers move on to the next conspiracy.
I've kept quiet on this because I am close to JB, but I will say that it is a shame that some people choose to attempt to tarnish a good will, kind hearted effort the way they have, to the point of talking about "questionable circumstances", SPECIALLY when they didn't even contribute to the fund. SHAME.
Thanks again Mal, for all you've done, and thank you to all of you who've managed to keep your contributions positive.
What is going on here? I am confused... How did this happen?
Let me state that if you need someone to hang then look at me.
I was the one who told the police what happened. The police report is based on my testimony. I was the one who held Steve as he died, no one else was there. Since I am also the one that told John what happened for he can't remember, "he had been knocked out..." The story about the accident comes from me. This includes all the repeats of the news about Steve's death over and over again because John couldn't remember five minutes after the telling. Note, the version is all mine since there are no other witnesses. This fact had the added benefit of watching John go through the shock of losing his best friend over and over again until his memory stabilized.
Don't forget that I am also the one that people called to ask if they should do a fund raiser. I was the one that gave them the go ahead. Also please note that at the time no one had an idea if John had insurance since he was too out of it to tell us.
I was also the one who thought that if we had any money left over after paying off the medical expenses that we shouldn't casually pocket the remaining funds. I thought that we should donate it to Steve's memorial fund.
Hang me for reaching out to Tim after hearing about his illness and offering help in Steve's name.
This is my fault. This is my problem.
Don't attack the man with the broken neck. Don't attack the one facing a stroke.
Since I am perfectly healthy and I don't need positive thoughts to get better... Since I am not too busy facing my health issues unlike the others who will not be emailing you because they are dealing with worse things , please pick on me.
If you think I am upset, you are right.
Anastasia sweetie, don't listen to any of these pricks. I know you're frustrated, but you know as well as any of us that you've done nothing to be blamed for. Unfortunately this is the kind of ugliness that a few anonymous pricks perpetrate to fell better about themselves.
I'm sorry you've got to deal with this. Take comfort in those who do care, and ignore the rest of the bullsh#t.
