Quickshot a dear friend of mine is in failing health and spirits.
Quickshot has posted 800 messages here and is one of the kindest people I know. There is no length he wouldn't go to try and find a answer to someones question.
He's now become a victim to father time. His exact age I don't know but I do know it's 80 something. I should live so long. We developed a long distance friendship via this site. He now needs some cheering up.
You see he can no longer do the things we younger people take for granted. He has aches and pains and what took 15 minutes now take him a hour with breaks. He's in pain. His eyesight is failing and can no longer play in the A.P.A. in the evening. He can't drive at night.
My purpose is just to cheer the Man up. Pay it forward as it were. A little history about Jim. Jim and myself BTW is a former Marine. He served his Country back in the day Faithfully! He can tell you the years, months and days he served.
He has children and is a devoted Father. That's as personal as I'll get. I'll respect the mans privacy.
So here's what I'm asking. Any of the members here who have received any help from Quickshot just send him a email and ask how he's doing. Just a simple hello and maybe a thank you or two. A prayer wouldn't hurt either.
Simple request from a simple man for a friend in need.

Make it a P.M. or he'll think he's being spammed.

My father played pool with me when he found out that I was trying to play with some kids in the hall.. He bought for me a custom cue from pampanga Philippines and taught me how to play the right way... Being a kid, I traded my pool cue for a bunch of nba basketball cards that now doesn't worth anything.. He then got really mad when I lend his own Playing cue to a friend w/c to date I haven't seen anymore... Bec of that we no longer played the game.. And I know I he had I'll feelings about it.. After 15 years I bought a deacent playing cue for him made of cocobolo (shaft and butt) that made him very happy.. He told me that he wanted to play again... But bec of having lung cancer and not being able to leave the house anymore hindered him in doing so... When he passed away, I had the cue turned into a 3 piece jump break cue that I still now use and will never trade for anything.. Especially nba basketball cards
