We're glad you found us! Before you start exploring our
pages, we'd appreciate it if you'd peruse this page. In addition, our FAQ may
also be of help to you. The FAQ largely deals with
questions specific to the John/Andrew Bucket Brigade and its
membership. This page, however, was created to deal with
some of the misconceptions people seem to have about JABB.
Namely, it's connection (or lack thereof, really) to John Dye or
any one involved with Touched by an Angel.
Hopefully, with this page, some of those questions will be
answered with out people having to wait for an email response
from me. If your question is not addressed here or on the
FAQ you are more than welcome to contact me.
If you're a new JABB member, Welcome Newbies!
is also a good resource.

4. Can you get
this message to Mr. Dye's family?
5. I just learned
of Charles Rocket's suicide. Why did he kill himself?
6. What's next for former TBAA cast members?
7. I want to join JABB. How
do I do that?
1. Question: Did you know John Dye?
Answer: No. At the time of this writing, no one active on
JABB had that pleasure. We were all deeply touched by his
work but we did not know him and we never sought him out.
We respected his privacy and still do.
2. Question: Did John Dye know about this
or did he ever participate?
Answer: We do not know for sure either way if he knew about
JABB. It had been listed on the Touched.com links page for
some time so we suppose it's possible he had knowledge of
JABB. If he did ever participate in any way then we did
not realize it. We would be very surprised to learn this
3. Question: What can you tell me about
John Dye's personal life or his death?
Answer: We have never had any knowledge of John Dye's personal
life nor did we ever seek it out. We consider it exactly
that. *Personal.* As for his death, all we knew
about it we learned from published news reports. We were,
of course, devastated. However, we are committed to
carrying on his legacy of kindness and compassion.
4. Question: Can you get this message to
Mr. Dye's family?
Answer: No. However, you might consider submitting a
remembrance to Pay It
Forward in Memory of John Dye. The site was started
with the cooperation of Mr. Dye's family. We continuously
pray for them and let God make the connection.
5. Question: I just learned of Charles
Rocket's suicide. Why did he kill himself?
Answer: Charles Rocket played Adam, the original angel of death
on Touched by an Angel. Sadly, he committed
suicide in October of 2005. We did create a tribute page
for him which you can view here.
Other tributes followed and can be found by glancing through our
TOCs. They are all labelled as CABBs.
Our prayers and thoughts continue to be with him and his
family. That being said, neither myself nor anyone I know
knew him. I haven't the slightest idea why he took his
life. Further, I don't think it's any of my
business. I will be more than happy to discuss memories of
Adam or Mr. Rocket's other roles with you but please do NOT ask
me this question. I have no answers for you and it makes
me feel uncomfortable. Thank you for your consideration in
If you are feeling suicidal and looking for help, we at JABB
suggest calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or visiting
for resources and support.
What's next professionally for former TBAA cast members?
Answer: You can keep an eye on their profiles at IMDB.com. That's all we
can do, too.
7. Question: I want to join JABB.
How do I do that?
Answer: This is a question I can answer! :-) We'd
love to have you join us. All JABB members receive our
biweekly "newsletter." It's not actually news but our
creative efforts. To get added to that distribution list
email me, Jenni, at the email address given here.
Some people also opt to join our Yahoogroup so they can chat
with other members. You can find information about that here.
Thanks for your interest!
