Over the next few days I will be emailing all the winners of Mercier's generous giveaway with details about a monetary collection for him. This will at least help to offset some shipping costs he will have to absorb. There is no amount too small or too big. To get an idea of exactly what airfare from Singapore costs to your destination feel free to check out usps.com.

Also, if you are leary about electronic payments and would rather send paper money I will include a PO Box for you to send the money.

As I stated in your replyl, I will take care of the shipping costs for 'gin's mom'.

Actually, 'gin's mom' will be here in Utah the whole month of May and her strand is being sent along with mine.

Thank you again, ladyluck, for offering your time to take care of this.

Hi LadyLuck

I am truly touched by your offer.......and I appreciate so much the thought behind it, but I think I should have the final say on this issue,

and I really want this to be on ME.

Please do not collect any money on my behalf. You cannot judge the shipment rates by UPS because I will be using my local postal service, anyway

I've had an awesome month of business this month and the free shipment is my dearest pleasure to offer to my DT friends. Please don't take this pleasure from me.

I will *definitely* tell you all if I think of anything that I would like.

Thank you so much for your consideration. I would now ask you to retract your offer though.

Thanks,

Mercier

Iím all for contributing to mercierís collection but I also want to respect his wishes to have this be Ďon himí, so what to do??? I hope abiding by his plea to not contribute to a collection is not seen as dismissive. Ladyluck I think your efforts are superb and just your intent alone conveys on behalf of all of us how we feel.
I really like the idea of hosting a contest/give-a-way for DTerís, since Iím not in retail I have no stock to pull from, I spoke to Mr. Bella about this and he joked that I could make recordings of my singing to offer ~ well, I wouldn't do that to any of you but really what can I do is my question?
I think the whole idea of giving with no strings attached is awesome, I want to thank (or show my appreciation) for mercierís gift by following his lead. I will be on the hunt for something suitable for the cause ~ don't know what or when but Iím on it.

If I were in Mercierís shoes and I received money after such a act of kindness I would be touched by the thought but wish others hadn't done that. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to receive a gift but itís good for the soul.

Iím seriously going to figure out something, may not be as wild as receiving pearls or jewelry related items but a few ideas kick around my head that are in tune with love.

I agree with you Bella. We really do need to respect Mercier's wishes.

I have proposed a compromise with Mercier under 'Let's Compromise'.

I see there are several threads on this topic floating around, and I haven't had time to keep on top of all of them.

But Bella...it seems you have the same feeling as me (which I just posted in another thread). I don't want to pressure Mercier into accepting our money or gifts if he doesn't want to.

I'm sure he's "felt the love" and that seems to be enough for him.

Gotta sign off...my hands are cramping from typing too long!

Thanks, CAL

Well, I just read mercier's generosity on shipping, and I think maybe the best way to thank him is to be generous to people when we have the opportunity to do so, that way all the good feelings we have for Mercier can be given to others and it willl just keep giviing. Do you think? Susanp

Bella: I know what you mean! I'd love to be able to do something like what you were talking about, even if it didn't have to do with jewelry. In fact, I've done several rather random acts of kindness in the past week. Everyone was so grateful and happy, even with tiny little things.

It just makes you feel *Good* to do something for someone else with no ulterior motive - just out of kindness.

Paying it forward is a great idea.

OK Mercier. If you can think of anything you want - a U of I postcard, etc.. etc... let me know. But in the meantime I am going to pay it forward with you in mind. You're a good soul.

Reliving the wonderous generousity of Mercier...

LadyLuck and all those who remember Mercier...

I have not been an active member of DT in a long, long time....

I was looking back on some, very, fond memories and wanted to pay a tribute to one of the most wonderous and generous people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

A moment of peace for Mercier...

Peace to all

WOW! Same here...I was active on DT several years ago while shopping for diamonds and the people here were so helpful to me, but I haven't been on DT in ages. But as soon as I saw this post, I remembered Mercier and what a generous soul he was. Thanks for the reminder!

Wow. It's nice to see all of you 'old-timers' still popping in once and a while. I still lurk...

Thanks for resurrecting this thread. It brought a smile to my face as I think of Mercier often. Even though his time here on Earth was short he taught many of us that sometimes we get more back by giving than taking.
