hey du old timers- do you remember cliffordu? UPDATE-2. [View all]

Last edited Thu Jun 7, 2018, 10:47 AM - Edit history (3)

he hasnt been on for a while, since the switch to du3.
i didnt know him well on du, but i bumped into him on fb, and have gotten close to him the last year or so.

the other day he got some very sad news- he has an aggressive form of als. he is a viet nam vet, and this is a service related disability, caused by agent orange.
he was in good health last summer, but over the winter had many weird symptoms, and finally was unable to breathe easily or walk.
he is in the v hospital in portland, or.

he doesnt know i am posting this, and i hope he is not mad at me. but i thought a thread w good wishes from old friends would cheer him up.

if you have a good story about him, please share for the younguns.

i will share this w him when it get to the top of the greatest page, which it gosh darn well better.

update- cliff has been aware of this thread, but is currently being poked and prodded.
he is a little overwhelmed, tho.
so lets keep it going.

update 2- i talked to cliff last night. he is going to try to log in today. he isnt sure he knows his password any more, but his account is still listed as active.
this thread has def cheered him.

it has fallen off the greatest, but lets try to keep it going here in the lounge.
