Jack, there is no need to apologize, I totally understand given your situation. After reading the current issue and visiting your website for the first time I couldnt resist ordering your material. I was prepared to wait for my order. I just thought it had gotten lost in this case and so I was hoping to get further information on this board. I wondered if any other folks on here knew if you had somebody else filling orders for instance whom I could have contacted. Well, as it turned out, you were still at the helm and that shows a lot of the person you are. Thank you again for handling everything, the ebooks are just wonderful! I have already fooled my wife badly with Bare Naked Ladieswhat a great effect with 7 normal cards. I have also ordered the back issue of Genii which had your first round of gems in it. You have inspired me, and Im sure countless others, to further examine some of the simple things. Im amazed that most of your effects use basic sleights but a ton of diabolical design. They really make me have those Why didnt I think of that moments more than a lot of the magic I have read and studied. I must say that even though I dont really know you, you and your family have been on my mind. We will pray for all of you as Im sure many others are doing. Thanks again Jack.
