    You can also donate to him via PayPal, his email is in the description of the above video. If one donates through PayPal Friends and Family that should minimize the fees he will have to pay as opposed to making a purchase on his website where roughly 3.5% goes to the credit card company.

    I sent a little something via PayPal.
    I think when someone sees that basically strangers thought enough to send ANYTHING it could be morally uplifting when you're THAT down...

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers and any donations you could manage. As of yesterday morning we have raised $9800. This will cover the cost of all the funeral arrangements that we are doing and get us well on our way to be able to afford two memorial benches for Michelle. She was a huge genealogy nerd and tracked my family back in this country to Jamestown. Since she loved genealogy so much I want to have one here at a nice cemetery and one up in Cleveland at Lake View Cemetery. This way if someone is trying to track Micki's family in 100 years it is easier for them to find her headstone/bench.

    I miss her so much.

    Micki did all the office work for BWE so it will take me some time to figure it out once I can bring myself to go into her office. Please be patient and I will get back to work and get gunsmithing done, parts made, and orders filled.

    Is Richard OK ? I placed an order with him in March and received no response from him.. figured I would give him some time but I also buried my Father who also died in March.

    I have noticed that he has not posted to any forums lately or any content to his YT channel. So hopefully it's because he's busy in the shop and not for any health reasons....?

    I'm sorry I have been out of it. My wife passed away about three months ago and my cancer also got worse so they put me on a heavier chemo treatment. Due to all this I have been dealing with depression and am now taking medication to help with that. Unfortunately due to my cancer I have very low energy and can only work for a few hours a day. I am getting a little more energy so I hope I can get out in the shop more.

    You've had a awful string of events to deal with.
    Take care of you and your family. Wishing you a quick recovery.

    Lots of people are pulling for you, Richard!
    Take care of YOU before worrying about customers. They will understand.

    Has anyone heard from Richard lately? I'm hoping that things are getting better for him.
