I am overwhelmed with sadness to hear of this unfortunate accident and your pain suffered from the injuries Marie. I hope & pray for healing & your complete recovery and know with all the love and support from your vast group of friends and family you'll find the strength to do so. I am also sending prayers and positive vibes to Jon Paul for the power and ability to help pull you through this tragic period in your lives...

here is a post from SG101 site.
that I thought was worthy of a repost here.
----------------------------------------------

Why bad things happen to awesome people is beyond me but I do know first hand good things come of it...Look how it's pulling all of us together to pray for both Marie and JonPaul and realizing how lucky we are to have the opportunity to support both of them...Jeff and I talked about providing cards for everyone to sign...Just as Jeff has done at Don's, I will have a card available at the Surfin Sundays gig May 2nd at Pier Plaza 11Am to 5 Pm...When you are suffering there's nothing more uplifting than knowing you are well loved by so many well-wishers...
On behalf of the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum, the surf bands and the surf community we are ever so grateful to Marie and JonPaul for their continued support in booking paying gigs at Don's for the bands who donate their time to play during Surfing Sundays...Everyone in the surf community is praying for a full speedy recovery and great strength for both Marie & JonPaul to get through this ordeal...I will be dedicating our May 2nd concert to both of them as well...
Thanks to Bigtikidude for posting Marie & JonPaul's plight...
Love to all!! Linda xo

I heard the terrible news and didn't believe it at first.

Marie has always made time at Don's feel welcoming and fun. She keeps the Dagger Bar feeling like home and I seriously appreciate that.

I send all the positive vibes and best wishes to Marie and JP. It really won't be the same place without her there..

There will be a crowd at Don's on Saturday to celebrate Tiki Bar TV's anniversary and I'll make sure we all show our support for Marie and get her card signed by the crew.

What're the odds of someone bringing the card by Bamboo Bens parking lot sale on Sunday? It'd be nice to get it passed around.

I was going to ask someone to do it, or drop it by Bens on sun morn. myself.
unfortunately I have to be at the HB pier all day.
But Vicky said that Ben was going to make a Big 3 or 4 foot card and have everybody sign it at the event.

If I can trust someone to watch the Binder and bring it back to Don's after the Ben event, I am cool with is being there.
But I was kinda hoping that people could swing By Dons after the event, and sign it there.

I'm good either way. I just need someone to promise to keep an eye on it while its at Bens. Maybe at somebody booth on the table.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery--My friends and I went to Don's for the first time a couple of months ago and Marie stopped at our table and told us some of the lore behind the drinks--We all were impressed by her knowledge and personality and have been back for a couple of Monday night happy hours and really enjoy the aura shares...Here's to a Painkiller in Marie's honor!

I don't mind saying that Marie made the difference between me liking Don's and not liking Don's...(I am talking about the location and it's 2 last incarnations). Prior to Marie being there, I found the service very rude and indifferent. The kind of placed you expect to find in LA, full of snob bartenders and even snobbier waitresses.

Not so with Marie. She is truly one of the Angels of Tikidom, in my opinion! I just can't stress enough how nice and COMPETENT she is at well, everything she does!

If someone wants to drop the binder off at me and Polynesiac's booth I'd be happy to mind it for the day. We'll just need to make sure someone can return it to Don's. Let me know Jeff, whatever you decide is totally cool. The big card idea of Ben's is a great one as well.

Hey....I'd rather the Don Beach card stay safe at Dons.

We've got something cookin for the Garage Sale. Holden thought it would be a good idea, and I agree. Kinda nice to have a bunch of HUGE cards signed by a bunch of different people, huh?

I heart Marie. Fell in love with her a long time ago.

When I was out there last year for the SG101 convention, I got to spend some time talking to Marie at the bar on Sunday night. We talked about Don's, about JP, and a little about tiki in general. She quickly became another entry on my list of "reasons I wish I lived in SoCal", which for an Arizona boy born & bred.....that's a big deal. Prayers, mojo, best wishes, figurative sacrificial virgins...whatever else I can come up with are winging their way westward.


Anybody figure out how to hook up a Mai Tai to the IV line? That'll get her fixed!!!!

Everyone,
Again, I cannot express how incredibly much the overwhelming love and support from the
community has meant throughout this difficult time.
I've been completely moved upon reading these posts--they've provided a total magical,
positive, supporting healing energy that has helped me tremendously.
I've been telling Marie about the thread and the messages within it, but today will be the
first time she's actually lucid enough to read them herself and absorb everything.
I'm home now briefly, gathering some things and taking care of some paperwork, and will
be sure to print out the pages and take them back to the hospital today for her.
(Unfortunately, her Macbook was destroyed at the time of the accident)
As far as an update goes....she was transported from the trauma hospital to the Intensive
Care Unit at Kaiser, where she underwent one further surgery for her right ankle.
Everything went very well, and that should be the last of the operations.
Now it's a matter of managing her pain, stabilization, and therapy.
This morning was a very positive turning point, as she is becoming much
more aware and interactive, wearing her glasses, and actually, in true Marie style, joking around
with the staff a bit. She was also cleared for solid food and her pain medication was decreased.
Those that have been asking about visiting...please send me a PM and as soon as I get the OK,
I'll let you know the details. I've also been receiving a tremendous amount of inquiries about
where to send things for her. Again, please send me a PM and I'll provide some details.
Now that she's conscious, I know that this would really cheer her up.
Again, from the depths of my heart, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
I know that many out there consider this 'our little hobby,' but the profound way that people have
come together in love, support and as family at a time like this, proves that it is much, much more.
I am so proud to be a part of the Tiki Community and be able to call you our friends and family.
As much love and Aloha as I can express,
Jonpaul
