    My thoughts are, Mr. Crowell needs to clarify his beef instead of kicking someone after the death of an immediate family member, either that or post a retraction.

      Nope, not here he doesn't. ...and if he ever had a beef with Leanna, he should have brought it up THEN, instead of pissing all over her at one of the worst times in her life. Talk about an ass. I think any respect I had for you Bill, just went out the window.

          Leanna, I'm sorry if you felt I was being unkind, but it did not help that you called me, essentially, a gay asshole when I respectfully expressed some "red pill" opinions on FABO. So if I owe you an apology, then you owe me one, too because I'm not gay! I liked chicks when I was younger (I was really trying to be a blue-pill guy back then)! I'm just too old to get a woman now. Just being a red pill kind of guy like me doesn't make me gay, so I didn't really appreciate your statements in that regard.

          You wrote: "As to you @Bill Crowell, I'll post up a copy of her Death Certificate as soon as the funeral home has it ready."

          Now that is a bit of a red herring or straw man argument, because I never claimed that your mother didn't pass away. I think the statement was rather unfairly prejudicial toward me.

          Look, I am not going to criticize you for being down on funds. Yes, there are always lots of people who will call you a loser just because you have little money at the moment, but I am not one of them. I was a business owner all my life, and I faced that problem all the time. I just had to learn to wear my poverty with pride, and not listen to the judgmental people. Leanna you should be too proud to buy an expensive funeral for your mother, and deliberately resist the feeling that you need to buy her one with money you don't have, in order to show her proper respect. You weren't born yesterday, were you? Everybody knows that funeral homes are the biggest ripoff in the universe, and poor people need to just say "no". Poor people have to find their own way of respecting the memories of the deceased, and honestly admit to themselves that they can't afford to do what people with money do. I'm sorry, but I found it rather undignified of you to ask for money that way.

          You also wrote: "I tried not to take offense at your observation but it actually reflects more on my mom and dad than anyone else..."

          I accept your statement that your mother had good values, but I doubt that she would be proud of you for begging money to pay for her expensive funeral. If her values were that good, she would probably tell you that you're making a big mistake.

            I didn't see anywhere where she was "begging for money". She explained the situation and asked for more work to help pay for her mothers funeral. All these threads on the forums were started by members wanting to help out. Expensive funeral? She mentioned cremation. Probably the least expensive funeral around. Don't bother responding, you are out of line in this thread. Have some respect and keep your false opinions to yourself.

              You know what they say. If the shoe fits, wear it.

                  I DID NOT BEG ANYONE FOR MONEY. I actually asked for people to send me WORK TO DO because I was raised to work for what I have. This is my FaceBook post from yesterday after I got home from the funeral home.

                  "As if the shock of losing a loved one isn't enough, the extortion being leveled by the funeral home just adds to the pain more than it helps survivors recover.
                  I'm beyond numb. Just like my dad, she had no insurance either.
                  I could REALLY use some work if you're inclined! Even at the bare bones minimum, the cost of mom's cremation is more than I've made in the last six months I think. Every job -- even a few brackets or something -- will be appreciated more than you can know right now.
                  http://PhoenixSpecialtyCoatings.com
                  Thanks in advance for helping me heal and move on ... and hopefully avoid bankruptcy as life gets back to normal. Ugh.
                  "​

                  The kind and generous people who Follow me on FaceBook took it upon themselves to start these fund raisers and the Benefit Auction going on over on FBBO, and both of them will tell you they pretty much had to talk me into letting them do it.

                  Even though it's really no one's business, I am not having a big or little funeral because my mom didn't live here very long and had few friends, and because it was going to add a thousand dollars to the total. All I want to do is be able to cover her cremation and whatever final expenses she has once I can go through her bills. A lady from her church called me an hour ago and invited me to a Celebration of Life on Sunday at 2:00 and I will be going to that ... and bringing something for the potluck they're having in her memory.

                  As to me calling you gay, I have no recollection of it or the thread it supposedly happened in. I've had few regrets on FABO over the many years I've been a part of it but that isn't one of them simply because I don't remember. If I did, I'm sorry. Talking about red and blue pills leads me to believe it may have been in the N&P forum but I'm merely guessing.

                  In the meantime, I want to thank everyone again for opening your hearts and helping me move on with life. I don't know what I'd do without all of you.

                        @CudaChick1968 , I wake every morning and run threw the for sale adds to help keep our sellers with in the rules everyday, then a quick post in a coffee thread and then log out to start my day.
                        I am so sorry to hear this information about your mom just about 30 minutes ago (I am still a slow reader sistha) but faster then I was :thankyou:
                        I know every time you threw your hat in the circle to help a member out :thankyou: and you have done that many many times.
                        This member that is throwing negative and harmful posts in here don't mean anything to me, and I bet all the other members.
                        There is a big hart in your small cute frame, I hope to get a big smile and a warm hart from you :) , we know you have took care of your family, as did I , I lost all three brothers in the last 6 years, and you always put a warm smile back on my face.
                        To keep this short, we love you and all the things you have done here to help when it was needed.
                        Streagth, healing and wisdom be with you on this day I pray, bless you for all the good you have brought to members here and other sites.
                        Prayers daily sistha, y'all stand strong and stay humble.
                        Love, your northeast Arkansas big brother memike

                          Can you please just refrain from posting here? Your lack of class, and compassion are not needed, at this time or any other. Your assumptions are just that, so kindly move on. And, I hope someday we can do something kind for you in your time of need, the same as the great folks here have done for so many others.

                              Whoever wrote the dumb shit to start drama in this thread can just go do that somewhere else. Disrespectful and leave well enough alone. Leanna-no need to respond to anything in the thread. We know you appreciate the help... That's all there is to it....

                              Take care of yourself and the family- John Weaver....

                                Good thing I'm not a mod or someone would be on a permanent holiday.

                                Some good stuff up for Auction over on FBBO if Bill or anyone else wants to put some money where their heart is !

                                FBBO Benefit Auction for @CudaChick1968!

                                    I read through from start to finish. Let's just get back on track. The negative posts and the positive responses are a great reminder how we take care of each other here. A friend in need is a friend indeed.

                                        Sometimes it's best to keep your mouth shut and let people think that you are stupid, than to open your mouth and PROOVE IT....

                                        Bill, if you are gonna keep posting negative things about Leanna, just stay out of this thread... This is not the time or place for it....


                                        She's a great person and wouldn't play about this.... She didn't beg or ask for help, others started it for her because she's helped so many others on this site over the years and she deserves it...

                                                No need to show anything Leanna. Theres always a sceptic when moneys involved..
                                                The good Lord has always provided me with enough, enough to pass it on. Id do it again in a heart beat. Like I said you post nothing. You dont have to prove anything.
