Help a 70-year-old sleep like a baby

Our favorite insomniac, Jim Luken, is turning 70 and his family wants to make his dreams of good sleep come true. We all know Jim lives a very modest life and keeps his luxuries to a minimum. So when he recently mentioned he might start saving for a Tempurpedic memory foam mattress, we knew he was serious about sleeping better. Jim suffers from chronic back pain and chronic insomnia as well chronic difficulty accepting the generosity of others. Of course, every one of us has exprienced the generosity of Jim; likely, many times over. We thought by making this a mass-group gift, Jim would be more inclined to accept a pricey birthday gift just this once. If you would like to join us in wishing Jim a happy 70th and many more happy days and deep-sleeping nights, please make a contribution in any amount. Also, please help us spread the word and forward this page to anyone you think might want to get in on the action! The gift is a SURPRISE so please don't tell the b-day boy. We plan to have a party for Jim, whose birthday is May 14, and we will share the date and details once confirmed. All will be welcome!

Thank you from Jim's kids, kids-in-law and "pop-up" grandkids: Becky, Sarah, David, Matt, Kenji, Katie, Aya and Lex!
