Good point, but ultimately some sort of update would seem considerate.
Wow. Just caught up on this thread. It was an amazing read with a cliffhanger ending. I was all ready to send money and now...
I really pray that we hear from Jack soon and that it has a happy ending.
I guess there is no way to see what is still in that PayPal account from someone here that helped Jack set it up. Or if someone puts additional money in it now is it possible to know if and when it was used/spent?
Hmm, I think I'll keep an eye on this very curious thread.
I have some very strong personal thoughts, but I'll just keep them to myself and wait and see where it goes from here.
One thing I will say however is that there are some very caring, very kind and wonderfully generous members on this forum.
Makes me feel proud to be a member.
Me too, Doug.
I can't help but agree with Barry above that an update would be considerate. But, we continue to wait to hear from Jack.
We are hoping for the best for him...and hope his silence is an indication that he has been busy acclimating to his new surroundings.
Just so people here are aware, I continue to reach out to him via e-mail on a fairly regular basis.
Thanks for continuing to reach out, Mike.
And if I ever hear something, you folks in this thread will be the first to know.
And, I've heard something.
The good news is that Jack e-mailed me this afternoon and that he is fine.
The bad news is that his attempt to relocate in Nashville did not go as hoped. He called the trip a "bust."
I wish I had more to report...but there just isn't much more to say at this juncture until I hear more from Jack.
Thanks for understanding.
Thanks for the update Mike. I kind of feared that, but at least he is alive, and that's important.
I know if I were in his shoes, money donated from HTF friends and acquaintances, only to have the move blow up...I'd kinda be reluctant to stick my head in here again too. I just hope he understands that the money wasn't supposed to guarantee some sort of outcome, that we're glad he at least gave it a shot to better his situation. No matter the outcome, glad to hear he's still vertical.
Thanks, Mike, for not giving up to get in contact with Jack.
I fully agree with Carlo: we gave some money to help Jack, not to get back a certain result.
It's too bad it didn't work out as hoped (immediately). Perhaps there are more chances.
Jack, if you read this: stay in touch with your friends here, please, if you feel like doing that.
I couldn't have said it any better, Carlo. Jack, if you are still checking in, please let us know how you are doing. Mike, thank you for your perseverance and letting us know Jack is okay.
Thanks for the update, Mike/Jack. I'm so happy to hear that you, Jack, are still with us, and very sad that things have not worked out better for you, yet.
Please keep us posted. Speaking only for myself, my relief at hearing from you outweighs my disappointment in the current outcome. Of course, it's easy to say that, sitting in my house, with a full belly. I only hope that you can stay strong and focus on trying to find a better result.
Good Better Luck.
I agree wholeheartedly with Cees and the others. I'm so sorry things did not work out in Nashville.
Continued best wishes Jack!
I heard from Jack again today.
You folks are very much in tune with how he is feeling.
But I wanted to quote this particular section directly from his e-mail:
Mike, thanks so much for keeping the lines of communication open. Probably nothing I can say that hasn't already been said here, except that I'm glad he's fine, and sorry that it hasn't worked out yet. I sincerely hope that there's a bit of good luck somewhere not too far in his future. I can barely imagine what any of this must be like, and it must have been so hard to reach out to Mike to report that things hadn't gone as planned. I'm grateful to have heard something from him via your posting, disappointed at the world for it not having worked out better, and not in the least upset with Jack. I truly hope that something better is just around the corner for him.
Well said, Josh.
I don't know Jack at all, but have thought of him and his situation often. Those of us who are more fortunate must never take anything for granted. Maybe it's because today is 9/11 that I am especially appreciative of what I have but I felt compelled to post a shout out to Jack if he's reading letting him know he's still in my prayers and best wishes go out to him for better days ahead.
Stay strong, Jack, and keep the faith.
Any further updates Mike?? I really hope Jack is OK.
