Dick is a metal detectorist, a senior, and a reader of this blog and has contributed a number of comments about metal detecting and collecting.
A fund has been set up for him and you can make a secure credit card donation at this Gofundme link. I know that things can be financially tight at this time of the year, but I hope that you can at least make a small donation (and perhaps more later).
Even being close to the path of a tornado is a horrifying experience: One touched down a couple of blocks from where I was staying in Oklahoma City, once, tearing off the roof of a church. Despite the fact that I had opened the windows a crack, I still heard the window glass being pulled from the low pressure outside. Homes can literally explode in such situations.
Please do what you can and spread the word about this fund. My best wishes and hopes for a brighter future go to Dick and his wife.
