Default Our Messages to Jeff Hinson (TulaneJeff)

The entire SBS Family is relieved to hear that Jeff Hinson, founder and owner of SIRIUS Backstage, is reported to be safe after the ravages of Hurricane Katrina.

Still, speaking on my own personal accord, we can't help but feel extreme pain for how much Jeff's life has no doubt changed. He was extremely proud of New Orleans, his second home where he attended college at Tulane. He was also proud of his hometown of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, which was Ground Zero for Hurricane Katrina, and has been pretty much destroyed.

I'm certain it will be some time before we hear from Jeff again, as he takes care of more important matters with his family in Bay St. Louis. I would like to see all of our members deliver a personal message to Jeff, through this thread. I'm sure this will be extremely encouraging for him when he is able to return to the SBS Family.

In fact, I would like to see this become the largest thread in SBS history. After everything Jeff has done for all of us to develop this site, this community, and a love of SIRIUS, it's our turn to return the favor.

Thank you, and God Bless you and your loved ones Jeff. Our thoughts as a family are with you.

PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS AND MESSAGES TO JEFF AS AN SBS FAMILY BELOW:

Jeff and all "down there,"

I watched all of the news reports as the storm approached.
I was glued to the TV during the early morning hours as she hit you hard.
I am sad as I continue to watch the aftermath.
I am sorry that you are going through this entire ordeal.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Take you time and get your life back together. I'm certain that everyone here will behave well.

First off, we are all very relieved to hear that you are safe.

You are a really great guy and if anyone can pull through this storm it is you. Remember, you can re-build a home but you can't bring back a life once it is gone. You have many friends here that support you and if you need anything just let us know.

Default Put a list together of Stuff you need

Jeff,

List some basic things that you need at this point.

A lot of the members here have a lot of stuff that sits around waiting for the next garage sale. Post the list here and maybe where to send it and see if we can help that way. I.E. tables, stuff for the house, maybe paint drywall materials, who knows. We should be able to help out that way.

Jeff,

First off, glad to hear that you are OK. As in the past we've helped each other out due to our common interests, and my feelings remain. Let us know what you may need that we, the satellite radio fans can help with, and I am sure we'll do what we can.

It's hard to imagine being cut off from the people and resources we take for granted. Thanks to your aunt, we're very glad to hear you guys are safe. Don't worry about things here. Focus on your home and family. We'll be here when you get back.

Everyone in the path of this storm is in my prayers.

Jeff:

We are personal friends and I will send you a private message to your email. However, in case you read this first, I wanted you to know that I said a hundred extra prayers on Monday when I found out that you were in the eye of the storm, hoping against hope that you and your loved ones escaped major injury. Hey ... maybe one of them worked!

I can't imagine what you're going through right now but you know that I'm standing by to help you and your family in any capacity you need.
There's a lot in my life that i have to be thankful and I want to share any of it in order to help you back to normalcy. I just bought an SUV over the weekend as my second car and you're more than welcome to use it for as long as you need. When the time is right, I'm more than willing to come down and perform clean-up, dig ditches, lay bricks or whatever. I'm serious when I say anything you need.

You built an incredible community here and i don't doubt for a second that the community wants to pay you back for all that you've given to us.

Your friend,
Ron Rodrigues

MM and SCB... Do great minds think alike, or what?! (I guess that works on both ends of the spectrum)

Jeff,
If there's anything you need I'm sure that anyone on here can agree we are going to go out of our way to provide it, all you need do is ask. Hell, I've got vacation time to burn and would gladly come down and help clean up, rebuild, or whatever you need. You are in our thoughts and our prayers.

Jeff it is great to hear that your are ok. I have been sitting here at my Desk in Connecticut feeling helpless, I keep hearing things and my head keeps saying "well UPS them a package of (whatever) and it will make things a little better". but then I remember there is no way UPS will be making deliveries there.

On my site I have plastered it with banners for the Red Cross and myself have donated. Yet I still feel helpless. I want to do more.

If there is anything I can do to help then just ask.

All the best!
