It's been a few months no and ther is no improvement in his health or his situation
He was just in hospital with another heart attack and has had two other hospitalizations since October. I know he isn't a big name, but he is loved at few shows he can do. Since last I checked in here he now has a grandson that he loves very much and is one of the few joys he seems to have
He says he has the Sadim touch anymore, reverse Midas touch(it turns, but not to gold). My husband and I live with my mother and with the new baby we can't do anymore. He has been hustling for shows, finding tenants and other jobs to no avail and the Act 91 has arrived, In a month or so he will be homeless. He doesn't qualify for disability, the VA is no help and lawyers are useless. I can see where he is giving up, and it scares me.
I have dreams of him pulling quarters from my sons ear and dad teaching the art as he did me.
He has become reclusive, depressed(clinically) and taken two attempts on his life that fortunately failed.
I can see through his put on smile he is broken, tired, hopeless and given up.His motivation is dying if not dead.
I want my son to be able to see the man he was when he raised me, when he was quick with a trick a joke and a hearty smile bringing joy to others through his magic. He is only 56, but he looks so much older now.

Even as a small time amature magician he put love into everything he did, at a show, or in the grocery line for a fussy child waiting to go home. He was always giving his time to magic, starting school clubs, working with scouts, even unpaid adult classes at local colleges.
It breaks my heart to beg like this for him, he is stubbornly proud. I see how many good people are out there and in my dealings with my dad I got to meet some wonderful and amazing people. I am proud to call Simon Lovell "uncle" and dear friend. I've met so many great artists through my dad. I found out the stage name North he took was a family name a direct link to John Ringling North (now I know why I like to eat fire like dad)

With so many of you here and the broad walks of life around the world I am begging with all humility to help my dad out of this mess, give him his spark so he can live again and long enough to make my son Jack a better magician then he ever was!
The gofund $10k has been closed but the need is still very much there and has risen to 40K. We reopened a smaller one hoping to at least get his car running,
I will be very happy to provide proof of payment to loans, utilites etc. If we by sheer luck exceed out goal I will be happy to work with Café staff to pt that overage to others in need,
but I am including my emails to get in touch if you can offer any help, bills, debt, get his car running, so much is needed. please help me get him on his feet, he is too young to quit, I am not ready to lose my father and I want him around to watch his grandson Jack Grow up.
He's given his life to magic, and it seems only magic can help him now.
Thank you all for any gifts large or small, and thank you for myself and little Jack,,
