    This is about Colin and It's not good guys.

    Hello, guys
    ever since the donations for Colin, he disappeared. I talked to him once or twice after. Colin was living in a shelter and trying to get his liife together. He had an interview that was going real well and he was excited. Sandy hit and I lost all communication with him. A couple of weeks ago Paul asked me if I had heard from Colin and I said I hadn't. I sent him some emails wishing him a Happy New Year and Merry Christmas but, no reply came. Yesterday I sent him another email and today I got an answer. It isn't good guys. when I find out more I'll let you know. here are the emails. they can explain things better.

    you alive? I know the holidays sucked. you doin alright? People keep calling me to see how you are doing especially, Paul. You need to pull your head out of your butt and say hello to the guys on the forum. They need to know if you are okay. They worry about you. I hope all is well, brother. Have a great New year.

    Hi I'm Dafydd Colin's Brother :
    He's still alive but Colin got hurt during the hurricane and is still in the hospital. I was coming back and forth between NY and PA were I live but we just moved him down to Florida so he would be closer to his mom. Colin's divorce never got finalized and his ex-wife is now siting on the paperwork and is making things kind of hard on us (me and the rest of his family). I'm assuming you know the story as you have his personal email and not business or eBay one, but just incase you don't. His wife left him last summer and filed for divorce. He singed all the paperwork and it was submitted but all this happened before he got served with the final papers so
    she is still next of kin. She is taking the high road because Colin hasn't been close with us for years, but we are still his family. I tried to contact everyone I could by going threw his address book but it's a mess so you might have got missed, sorry. I guess I'm kind of rambling, sorry I do that. Anyway I'm adding your email address to the list that I update family and friends with so you will be kept up to date from now on. Who is Paul so I can add him as well?
    Thank you again
    Dafydd


    Hello, Dafydd

    I am actually a member of the Kitchen Knife Forums. Paul is a member here on the forum and a friend of Colins also.We are all friends of Colin and are aware of his business and wife situation. There has been alot of concern and curiosity about his whereabouts and well being. I'm sorry to hear that he was hurt in the storm. Is he going too pull through? No loss of limbs or anything? I know he's a pain in the ass and quite opinionated so, are the rest of us. He's one of us though. Hang in there. It will work out in the end. If there is anything we can do on our end let us know. If you are able give him my well wishes.

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    I was just wondering yesterday how he was doing, I saw Butch's donation Knife thread and it got me thinking. I was gonna start a thread at some point to ask if anyone had heard how he was faring. This sucks...

    Very strange this should come up. I was just wondering the same thing earlier today and checked Colin's ebay account and it turns out he has a few items listed for sale. One of them is some horse hide and the other is an itou gyuto. The itou has an abalone handle and the bidding starts at 500. This is a good cause to help Colin and a chance to grab a nice itou at the same time.

    If I had the money for it I would help out but I hope someone else can step in.

    I hate to be cynical, but I really hope it goes to him and not his ex just trying to clean out some of his stuff.

    Colin if you do get access to the site - Our thoughts and prayers are with you!!

    I was contacted by a member who is looking for Colin because he received a box of his stuff from Colin's ex and wanted to get it to him. If anyone can help please contact me.

    I hope to hear that Colin is OK

    Holy crap I really hope he is on the road to recovery, but it sounds like it was pretty serious. Colin, we're sending our best wishes out to you!
