From the magic cafe:
My dear friend Dean Dill and his family were in a very bad car accident (almost killed). Dean is in a hospital in Las Vegas (they were on their way back to LA from Vegas). Dean's vehicle was T-boned by a Dodge Truck as Dean was trying to help another vehicle that had flipped and landed on its roof. Dean has some broken ribs, broken pelvis, and lacerations to his face. Denise (his wife) has a broken cheek bone and black and blue eyes. Jamie broke his nose and lost several teeth. Denise and Jamie have been released, but Dean has not. They are trying to stablize him so they can transport him to a hospital close to home.
That said, it will be some time before Dean will be back on his feet and working. In the meantime, the Dill family are subject to an enormous amount of financial hardship.
Given the pain and stress they are already enduring, I come to you, our Caf family to ask for your help.
I realize that everyone is having their own set of financial matters to deal with, especially with the holidays and all.
That aside, I feel we still need to reach out and help not only someone I consider a close friend and a brother, but a fellow magician and entertainer who has given us all so very much. If you cannot give, perhaps a card or letter to let Dean and his family know you are thinking of them?
I would also ask and encourage each of you to keep the Dill family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
