Ralph, if you're in contact with Melanie and she does need help with expenses, I'd be willing to chip in some. Maybe other Sailnetters would too.

I sent Mel an email linking the thread here, and at CF. I hope she will see how much respect we all had for John, and how much we all care for her too, in this sad time.

I asked about her plans for Imagine, and if she still needed any kind of help? I know some members here have sent what they could. She is a tough one, but dealing with John's death and Imagine in Panama, well...it has to be really hard. I'll post more when she replies.

Melanie - thanks so much for the write up. I'm really going to miss John. But I love the peaceful way you let him go. God's peace be with you now.
