It's certainly a sad story, Red Stick, but if it sinks to page 20 on the OT, then either not too many people know who he was or apparently care about the story .. Just an unfortunate part of life .. You can't force people to care, I guess ..
On the flip side, I do see your frustration as I have seen threads like that stickied before and am sure others will be after .. Don't know the criteria here ..
Eta: just read through the thread closely .. when you started soliciting for donations, that's where it gets dicey .. looks like two other groups outside the OT that would be closer to him and more compelled to donate are already collecting .. They should be able to raise enough, hopefully .. When you start doing that here, it's frowned upon .. Like Captain said, you're lucky the thread didn't get deleted ..
