Memorial brick for Patrick W. Desmond?
« on: August 13, 2009, 22:21 »
See this post first for background: http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php/topic,372.msg2177.html#msg2177

I have an address (other than paypal, since I know some people don't like paypal, me included) to send money to Jeff Jacobsen for a memorial brick for Patrick and/or Lisa McPherson and/or anything else we might want to memorialize.  I have known Jeff for at least 10 years, and I trust him to do what he says he will with the money.  I'm planning on sending him a check or money order toward a brick for Patrick, but wouldn't mind help covering the cost, if anyone else wants to chip in.  The bricks must be ordered by March 15, next year, but I would rather do it sooner than that, if possible.  You can send me a PM if you'd rather not post specifics.

Can we come up with something else to say other than his name - the bricks can have up to 3 lines, each line composed of 14 characters, which include spaces, punctuation, etc.

Patrick W. Desmond (18 characters)
Patrick Desmond (15 characters)

so it will take 2 lines just for his name.

Patrick W. (10 characters)
Desmond (7 characters)

Here's what we have available:
(3 characters + space) Patrick W.
Desmond (space + 6 characters)
(14 characters)

Any suggestions on what to say on the brick?

Ok, I have $50 toward the $75 that the brick will cost.  If anyone would like to contribute to the other $25, please PM me.

I think I like that one the best too.  Nice and simple, respectful. 

I have pledges for the full  $75 now, but if you'd like to contribute also, I'm sure the other donors would like to have their share lessened a little bit.   :)  PM me for specifics.
