So What's The Deal With Kumabear

I hear that he has vanished. Anybody? I also noticed his name is no longer on Facebook.

That would be terrible taste.  I know he's had health problems.  I was hoping for the best, and still am.

The low mode should be lower.

A quick google didn't turn up any obituaries, so that is a good sign.

route69, do you have any evidence to back up your statement? If you would prefer not to share for privacy reasons PM it to me so I can confirm. Sad

When my wife’s cousin died, his family posted an obituary on his page.
Family and friends still post to his page.
It has become a memorial.

@route69, yep we have his full name and address. I'm probably going to try to find a phone number for him, and if not that then there is always snail mail.

If you are serious about contacting him and don’t mind an akward moment, call their neighboors and kindly ask them to deliver the message.

Look up the neighboors name and address thru the local property tax office, they are usually online and is public information, then use the internet white pages for the number.

I am originally from the Boston area and I talked with him about it. He definitely lives in in or near Framingham, Mass. Gosh darn it. I hope he is okay. Darn.

Hmmm... That might be worth a shot, I will look into it. Smile

I'll keep Bob in my prayers. Hopefully he's just recovering from his illness, and not something worse...

I actually have a $60+ pending order with Bob that’s about 3 months old now. I have always had the best transactions with him in the past.
I would like to eventually see my batteries, but all things considered, a fellow members health and well being is a heck of a lot more important than me get a few more batteries.
So I only wish you the best Bob.
