Our friend, Rick Watters, a.k.a. "Caveman" will pass away soon. He's enjoyed a few years of remission, but his time has come to be with God. The cancer, made famous by Farrah Fawcett, has traveled through his body and has consumed almost all of his cells .

I was surprised to hear his last request, and wondered if my last request in life would be as simple as his. Rick has built dream computer's for 20 years, but never built one for himself. And at this point, medical treatment for cancer has depleted the family funds to zero. His only dream in life was to build and play "The Ultimate" dream computer.

One day we sat together and he showed me every single part he would use to create the beastliest machine ever! I wish you could have seen the look of joy on his face as he told me about each part and how it functioned. You can see his list on this page.

I admire Caveman's simple wish and believe we can make a difference in his life. His days are very few, so we have to act FAST! In the event Rick should pass before we complete this fundraiser, all donations raised will be given to his family as funds to take care of cremation and other final expenses they will face.

If he lives long enough to complete his mission, "and We do believe he will," then playing his favorite game in high definition & full glorious graphical detail for even one day will be his final dream come true!

Regardless how many days or weeks he gets to play with his brothers in arms on this new rig, at the end of our time with him, the machine will be donated to his tireless caregiver. Her endless dedication and compassion literally added 12 years to his short but wonderful 45yr lifespan.

What would you wish for? Would it be as simple as creating a tower from scratch with your own two hands? Will you help make his last wish come true?
Please donate today because too many tomorrow's may not be here for him.

I appreciate you taking the time to read and participate in this event. There will be a pot luck bonfire celebration on the lake with live music held shortly after he leaves us to celebrate his life & commit his ashes back to the world he loved so much. Everyone will be invited.
