Those on FB may have seen that Andy FishMaster1's mother passed away recently...

She was a special woman and I feel honored to have gotten to meet her on several occasions...

Andy and his brother Mike reached out to the A-Hulls for some $$ help with her final expenses, and we agreed unanimously to send them $3,500.

I have attached screenshots showing the transfer to Mike, and the current PayPal ($9,949.22) and checking ($165.81) balances...

In 2017, PIF did the following:

-$5,000 given to Pacific's GF Pamela
-$2,500 given to Sheri
-$2,500 given to Steph
-$9,600 given to Steph
-$6,000 raised for Steph still in PIF PayPal
-$5,000 given to Rini
-$3,000 given to PinSeeker_11
-$3,000 from Native Raffle given to VictorG
-$3,000 from Native Raffle given to PinSeeker_11
-$3,500 given to FM1's family for mother's final expenses

That's a total of $43,100...the most PIF has given out in one year ever...

Between PayPal and the PIF Checking we still have $2,615 in PIF reserves for future need (this is after taking into consideration the $6,000 we have set aside for Steph, the $1,500 for AOTY/DOTY awards).

I hope the actions we have taken this year have been in line with what the community wants from us, and please let me know if there are any questions or concerns.

It's a discounted raiders Jersey after the season they had this year. I'm sad to hear about Andy's mom. My thoughts are with you brotha. Hope you guys celebrate her life in style.

very sorry to hear of Andy's loss.
Glad that NCKA could help, as FM1 has certainly paid his own forward many times over.
