Mr. Fuskie,

I'm REALLY sorry I missed this announcement. Congratulations!!!!!

On Friday I was at the hospital visiting my little girl. She's so wonderful -- and brave too. Who would have thought that cleft lip and the six fingers on one hand would have brought such ridicule at the pre-school. On Friday a nasty divorced Dad flipped out and started firing with a gun. My little girl threw herself in front of the babies and never cried once when they took her kidney.

Mother would have been there with her but she's trying to fight the lyme desease while taking care of her parents with Altzheimer's. Normally she'd have been working but she got laid off at Delta. She's run out of unemployment but fortunately mine from that big Coke layoff is still coming in.

Now, of course, we're too proud to use welfare, but the cost of that kidney for my little girl is pretty steep. I'd NEVER ask for charity, but a LOAN of $1 mill could just tide us over during this rough patch.

Again, congratulations. I KNOW you'll enjoy that money -- sittin in that big office in Alexandria, and your home in Atlanta, and now visiting Las Vegas all the time. I don't want you to worry about us, because any resemblance to actual events, or to think about our future, as uncertain as it may be compared to YOU ... the BIG, LUCKY guy.
