RJL is Closing

Sad to say, but the cost of maintaining this website is knocking at $500 a year. That represents an increase of more than $65 over last year to say nothing of the increases that have been levied every year for several years. For a hobby that generates no revenue, that is more than I can afford.


Accordingly, I have no choice but to cancel the website when it comes up for renewal next month. I believe it will stay up until July 19th, but I'm not sure.


I have enjoyed creating and maintaining RJL since its beginnings as Memories of Hawaii Five-0 in 2009. Memories of Hawaii Five-0 and Remembering Jack Lord have received many blessings. A historian at the Richmond Hill Historical Society went out in the middle of Hurricane Sandy to take pictures of the house where Jack grew up. Several members -- most notably Mike Quigley, Steve's Girl, Vrinda, and Park Lane -- contributed greatly to the research that went into the websites. During a financial crisis about ten years ago, I sold six of Jack's lithographs to raise the funds I needed to keep the websites going. Two bidders went after "The Sisters" with a vengeance, allowing it to sell for more than $1200! Can you believe it! Truly, the old saw is true: "It takes a village to rear a child."


Again, many thanks for your interest and support.


Mahalo and aloha!

Sad to see this but as the others have said, completely understandable. You have my great thanks for all of the time and efforts you’ve poured in to this beautiful site. I found it when I was going through a long convalescence and it’s continued to be a happy place I’ve come back to time and again during relapses when I’ve been able to do little but just read. You’ve brought much joy to many people. Mahalo!

Thank you, Honu. Your posts have been delightful and informative, especially about the MacArthurs, Pretty Penny, and James' passing a few years ago.
