Dear Ellen; I'm writing you for the first time. Hope you don't mind hearing from a grizzled old private eye, but I have a very special Christmas request. There's a young man here in Lakewood, Washington by the name of Justin D. Horn. he's a former U.S. Marine ('Fought in the Gulf War). Subsequent to his military service in which he received a number of citations & commendations for meritorious service ... he went on vacation with his wife & friends to Puerta Vallarta. In brief, on the last day there he sustained a tragic accident in which his neck was broken and he wound up a paraplegic. That was in August of 2001. His wife at the time left him for good just five weeks later for reasons of her own, leaving him to raise their two little girls, Taylor and Jordon. He has done a magnificent job of it even though his income is limited to SSI only. 'Problem is his 1990 Chevrolet Astrovan has seen it's better days long ago. I've driven it and it is simply falling apart, beyond repair. The VA will complete outfit another van for him with the latest in hydraulics, etc., he only needs to get a van. NOT a new one or even a fancy one. VA requests one tht is less than ten years old is all. I see them all over the place for between $5,000 & $6,000. I have started a fund for Justin at the U S BANK here in Lakewood. It is entitled "JUSTIN HORN DONATION ACCOUNT", with a routing number of 125000105 and an account number of 153565909154. Any US Bank in the U.S. can accept funds to that account. Or checks made out to the JUSTIN HORN DONATION ACCOUNT can be forwarded to his mother, Vicky Cook at 5801 Hillcrest Dr., Lakewood, WA 98499.

This is my 46th year as a private investigator, and I have yet to meet any individual more deserving of a helping hand than this fine young man. Would you consider assisting him or nudging others to do so? It would definitely make the welcoming of the new year a warm one for him, to have a vehicle that would be less likely to fail him.

My phone number is: 253-582-0224 and my email address is: alfarrpi@centurylink.net Should you have any question whatsoever please feel free to contact me at any time. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you. You are so much admired by us all for your good works and just being YOU .. ! Take care & be good to yourself
