I've been missing Robyn55 too. We lost so many this past year . . . there are probably more whose names escape me right this minute. I always hope when someone hasn't been posting for awhile that they're off traveling or enjoying life and too busy to post. Seize the day, everyone.

Had a good birthday yesterday. We went to the casino, ate and did some gambling. Tomorrow, we are leaving for my hometown. We are taking my grandsons. I had promised to watch them this weekend. They will have a chance to meet some of their relatives. We could have left today, but my wife had a commitment.

I'd be lying if I didn't say I saw this coming. I hope & believe he's resting in peace with his beloved wife.

I'm still alive. And feeling fairly ok about it.

I got a DM from Curm about a year ago when he went missing. He said he was depressed about his wife's passing but was doing better. He said he was"back" but obviously not. I wish we could reach out to those who are grieving or wishing life would end, somehow, but without knowing real names and emails, it's hard to do this.

May he rest in peace with his beloved Peggy, forever.

OMG, I also found the obituary for him. There is very little information. I am just heartsick. He was such a wonderful poster. I "met" him on CD when I first joined CD and was learning about it. He was a regular poster. I am still stinging from the deaths of several other regular posters, now this. RIP, friend, you are now with your precious Peggy. Is the obituary enough to make him an Eternal Member? There is no mistaking it is his.

So sorry to read about Curmudgeon. I enjoyed his posts.

I had a close friend on the Colorado forum with whom I exchanged two years worth of some of the best discussions ever. I loved reading her DM's and replying to them. She lost her home in the horrific floods in Colorado in 2013. We continued to correspond for another year or so after that and she seemed completely adrift - moving from one place to the next before finally dropping completely off the radar. I suppose I could try to track her down via Google, but I'm scared of what I might discover.

The very worst thing about getting older IMO is the inevitable loss of friends. My best friend IRL died a little while back, and I miss her something awful.

So saddened to here of Curms passing. We exchanged many DM’s as we were both Marine Corps Brats, and our fathers were posted at many of the same places- including Quantico and the Pentagon, actually at the same time. Curmudgeon was older than me so we couldn’t figure out if we had actually met. Such a small world. He was shattered at his wife’s death- he moved back to California, I believe to be near his daughter.
