Collecting for a wreath for the funeral 

I am looking into a guitar wreath for Ron's funeral and AC has confirmed that it would be appropriate. We don't know the costs yet but I would like to start a collection.

If you would like to donate, please click on the button at the top of this page and follow the instructions.

If you don't have a PayPal account, you can use your credit or debit card.

I have started it off. Thank you in advance.

I'm going round a few florists today and I'm going to ask them for a rough estimate for a guitar sized wreath.

Any other questions anyone wants me to ask?

Also I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who donated! Even the smallest donation is so incredibly generous.

AC, take a photo of a flamenco guitar on your phone for them to use as a reference.

Seems they have changed it so that you can only do that via a PayPal merchant link, which I am. I use it to sell the DVD, so I know it can be done.

I'll set up a button to put on the site. Hold tight.

On that page, look for:

Don't have a PayPal account?
Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue.


Then click on Continue or login if you have an account.

COME ON EVERYONE... Collecting for a... (in reply to Escribano

Come’n y’all, each flower forming that flamenco-guitar-shaped wreath should represent each one of us all, foro members, and the love and respect we feel for Ron M.

When Simon will post a picture of the wreath, you too will want to proudly say… yes my flower was there, saying good bye to dear Ron.

So please contribute, even if one single GBR Pound, be there.

And do make that video, as well… leave your message on Heaven’s voice mail, so that Ron may listen to them all, while sipping a pint of his favorite brew.

Thanks Simon.

No problems here. (Other than PayPal telling me I had the wrong password a few times. Then somehow deciding that I had the right one. Not unusual for my PayPal account!).

Have a safe trip. . .
