Those who know me, or follow my blogs regularly, know I'm a product of great women...From my mother and sister, to my wife and daughters, to the wonderful ladies who've worked with and for me in the past 20+ years. To a much lesser extent, however, there are a handful of men I credit with helping form me: My father (Jim Caruthers), Paul Pierri, Ron Steinberg, Sergeant William Oxford, Dennis Prager, and Rich Karlin.
This last man is my father-in-law, and it pains me to say I haven't spent nearly enough time with him. My wife and I moved to Arizona decades ago and we have often spoke of moving back to Denver - the one reason we kept longing for this return was Rich...Ultimately we've chosen to raise our family in Arizona, and I'm quite certain we made the correct decision. I think Rich would agree with my assessment. As much as he loves his daughter and grandchildren, I know he is unselfish enough to know Melissa and I have made the right decision.
That's the kind of guy Rich is...Actually, Rich is the most kind, gentle, and decent human being I've ever met - by a lot!
Unfortunately, he has fallen on poor health, and is requiring heart surgery. Equally unfortunate, this surgery and his after-care are causing financial strains which were never expected.
I have never used my blogs to solicit anything from anyone, and I am not asking my readers for any money
...What I am asking for is if anyone knows any 'Angel Donors'- people who have money, and are looking for good causes to support.
I know these people are out there, and I know Rich Karlin is someone deserving of support.
If anyone knows any 'Angel Donors' please forward this GoFundMe
link to them: https://www.gofundme.com/tgnktmck
If you would like to link the page
on your Facebook or Twitter accounts it might help as well.
Like I said, I've never done anything like this in my life...THIS MAN IS WORTH IT!
