Three weeks ago my beautiful 30 year old son, Spike, died suddently of pneumonia. I am crushed. Mom is more than crushed. Spike was a sailor's sailor.
He attended Seattle
Maritime Academy where he learned to be a commercial
seaman. After a few years at that he became an iron worker. He was extremey creative and he loved working at the forge and he was very good at it.
I would really appreciate it if you could contribute to Spike's Fund at the Seattle
Maritime Academy so we can send more kids
to become seamen. The money
is going to scholarships with the only stipulation that I get to meet the kids
SAILING ANARCHY has raised well over $10,000 for the fund let's see if we can do that over here. Here is the contact:
o Seattle Central Foundation Donation Page
o Seattle Maritime Academy
I'd appreciate anything you can do.
For all of you cruisers in the PNW on May 2nd at 7pm we will be having a fundraiser at Conor Bryn's Pub in Ballard, where else. There will be live music
. I know Max, Spike's brother will do a set and I may even do a set. You'll have to pay to make me stop singing.
So come on down, support the fund and wear your CRUISER'S FORUM T shirt.
DO NOT set your nipples on fire or you will be mistaken for a SAILING ANARCHY person. ( They have been huge supporters)
I will definitely have at least one nipple on fire. Or maybe I'll just use a felt pen.
This is a chance for sailors to show their support for one of them. It would mean a lot to me if you showed up.
