I'm starting to get a little worried....according to his page, Robert hasn't logged into CSN since March 24th.  And he always used to like replying to birthday posts, but hasn't since February.

Does anyone have an address or other contact info for him -- maybe from the ornament exchange?  If so, would someone be able to check in with him, and let him know we're thinking about him?

Keep checkng thus post to see ifnhe has responded. I keep telling myself when we don't hear from someonenfor a while that they are just busy or on vaca, but he has never gone this long. Keeping fingers and toes crossed!

Will believe he is on vaca until I hear otherwise!

Like the rest of you, I am concerned about Robert. Last night I emailed CSN (Greta) and inquired whether they could contact Robert and have him or someone on his behalf post an update on this discussion board. I have not yet heard back from them. It may not be possible, but I thought it was worth a try.

ROBERT, we are thinking of you.

Since a PM from CSN lands in your regular email box, thought it worth a try.

Here is a copy of the response I got from Greta at CSN:

 

I will send an email to the email address we have on file for him to convey your concern and well wishes, etc.  If we receive a reply we'll let you know.

Best,

Robert's CSN account "ManWithaMission" was deleted. I don't know what that means, I hope he is OK.

I do think he would delete his account. I hope Greta will help us to understand.

I agree, Olga. Robert always kept in contact with us and it seems unlike what we've known of him, that he would delete his account.  I hope we can get an answer and I hope that answer is that he moved or doesn't have computer access or something like that.  I still remain worried .

Hello ladies, 

I am from the Kidney Cancer forum. Since my diagnosis, I took an interest in other forums and people's stories, wanting to know how people cope with this  diagnosis/disease/fear of recurrence, as many of us do. 

I saw that all you nice ladies were worried about Robert, ManwithaMission,  I wrote a few private messages to some of you, but they don't seem to get through or something. I didn't think it was my place to come and say anything, I have been waiting for a while for someone in his family  to come and let you know but that hasn't happened.

 

 

Sadly, I believe your dear brother in pink has passed away. I have found his obituary, I had seen his picture before and I think it is him. I am very, very  sorry for your loss!

Just in case the link gets deleted by the administrator for privacy reasons: I looked at the obituary and unfortunately it is not a mistake. Robert passed away on April 17th. May he rest in peace.

Kitty, thank you for the update.

Alexandra,

You did the same for us with Texas Wedge. I'm thanking you now!! It was very hard for us, active posters and lurkers like me alike not to know

what was going on.

 

Condolences to all of you, ladies and his family!

I was afraid that this was the case when he hadn't posted and didn't reply to Vicki Sam post.

Condolensces to his family.   Robert was one of the most positive posters on this site.  I shall miss him.

I am sorry to hear about Robert.  I do wish a cure could be found, don't the powers that be have any clue at all?  Same with Alziemers  etc.  waiting for 'a break through' of some sort.  So sad.............  Did he have a family?

Robert was a gentle and courageous presence on the CSN MB.  I pray his example will help other men come aboard.  He was so brave and open about his disease.  I know he will be missed by everyone who knew him.  So very, very sad this am.  He was a one-in-a-million gem of a guy.

Thank you Kitty for the link.  I was able to post a condolence there (we have until April 17th before site closes).  If you copy and paste Kitty's link (below) in your browser window, you can do likewise.

He sure will be missed here. I wish his family could have kept the account long enough to have a chance to see all the wonderful things written about him. He really was one of the most positive, or "plesant posters" on our site.
RIP

Thank you Kitty for letting us know.

This is sad. Robert seemed like a man with a huge heart and gentle ways. He kept up with everyone's birthdays and was always pleasant and upbeat. I always enjoyed his posts, he usually said something that made him write "ha ha." I hope heaven is treating him well.
