  2. Awesome! I'll keep the GoFundMe for Ken open in that case. Thanks.
  3. I want to thank everyone for the GoFundMe contributions and to anyone who sent Ken's wife, Jo, a card to the address posted. I am going to shut down the GoFundMe this Friday so if anyone wishes to still contribute, know this would be the deadline for it and anything afterward would have to be mailed to her directly at the address provided in the original post.

It also goes to show how much he invested into the site.
  8. There were many times that I was over there when it came on. There was nothing to be discussed during that show, only Jeopardy to be enjoyed. It was a household commitment.
  9. I'm not really sure how to do that... is someone here the account owner that could?
