.Hi all, long time to speak. Some of you may remember me, Hellion. But I,m not here to announce my return. I,m here because I need the help of this great community to homer one of our own.
I don't know if Ed Wills ever posted here but he is an AV ENGINEER beyond peer. Unfortunately Ed is dying of cancer and we don't know how long he will be around.
I know medical bills must be hitting his family hard, though he's the type of guy that will never admit it.
The man was a mentor to me and to my whole team. I just put him in for an achievement award which I'll send the text to anyone who asks. That came with a 2000 dollar monetary award.this was for designing and managing the installation of a central control system that does VC, audio, multi display video, content, web streaming and fully produced video from any room, (17), within the institute as well as external site.,
Ed's system can do all of this and much more. Not to mention he is one of the best people I've ever met and it has been an honor to have work with him. I'm the manager, but he 's the heart and soul of the team. I consider him a mentor while he's almost a father figure for the rest of the team.
I used to be on here a lot and I believe I had a pretty honorable rep. I want to start a collection for him and his family to help with the medical bills but I'm not sure how the best way todo so would be.
I call on you TSC's to help me out.... My personal email at work is email@example.com
I hope that shows my seriousness.
Please give to help out Ed, and his family, but better someone please show me how to collect the donations. I promise very penny will go where it's supposed to.
He has quit treatment and just wants to focus on quality of life. Yet, his bowels are partially blocked and he's on a ton of pain killer. This obnoxious ass still try to come in a couple of times a week for a few hours. And you know what? I'm glad to have him. I can learn more talking to him in 5 minutes than a whole day in any formal class.
Please help me to do something for this wonderful man and his family.
Sincerely, and thanks,
