A sincere "Thank You", C.COM

Just a note to say a heart-felt Thank You to Alex and all the folks at Cigar.Com. Just when I begin to think all of the condolences and good wishes have been received, along comes a package from all these wonderful people who make our hobby so enjoyable.

At first I thought it might be the COTM package but it seemed a little early for that. So I opened it to find a CAO America sampler that I figured had to be a mistake because I hadn't ordered one. Looking a little further I found a small card in an envelope that said, simply, RIP Chase. It was time to break out the handkerchief again.

What a class act you are, Alex. You and the whole great crew you have behind you. I can't think of the proper words to thank all of you for this kindness. It's no wonder you have such a loyal following. Thank you. Very, very much.

    Man, that made me get all fuzzy in the eye socket. A big reason on why I love this place, the people are what makes it so enjoyable. And for Alex and his crew to reach out like that makes it that much easier to love this place and Ccom in general. Bravo Zulu gents!

    Not to take away thanks to Alex and crew for anything because they all do a spectacular job, but it wasn't them this time. I saw that sampler and it looked too fitting to go in that new humi. Don't thank me either. Nobody deserves more thanks and appreciation than Chase and all the others who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

    Oh, Wow, Ben. I'm sorry. Truly. I had no idea. There was no clue in the package other than that the portion of the invoice that shows the price had been cut away and I figured it had to be C.COM's doing. Talk about having egg on one's face - I really blew it!

    And the appropriateness of it was beautiful. I hope you'll accept my apology.

    I haven't broken the cellophane wrapper on the sampler. Probably won't for a while. For now, it'll stay right on top in the humi that SmokinDaddy sent me. Right where I can see it every time I open the humidor. It was an extremely symbolic choice and in spite of your wishes, my friend, I thank you.

    No apology necessary. I certainly was not offended and hope it didn't come across that way. I'm glad you found it as fitting as I did.

    No, Sir, it didn't come across that way. I'm glad you corrected me, though. I can imagine Alex sitting there saying, "What the hell is Marty talking about". LOL

    What a Class Act Cigar.Com is. They make it a pleasure to do business with. Really it's not business. It's trading currency for good will.

    And this thread, my friends, is one of the reasons I like being part of this forum.
    Very nicely done.
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.
