m25operator (Benny)
« on: May 17, 2023, 02:57:47 PM »
I know m25operator (Benny M) hasn't been active on here for a few years due to health issues, but he was always a beloved part of this forum from the beginning... and even though he won't see this, let us take a minute to wish him well in our thoughts and prayers.

Yes, I miss him.  I had breakfast with him one morning many years ago.  He's a great guy.

Used to get the occasional phone call from him, back in the day.  Hazcat did, too.  Thoughts and prayers.

They are both doing well.  Youngster is a merchant marine ship's engineer.  Haz is retired and enjoying life.  Since I moved to the North Carolina mountains and no longer live a couple blocks from their house, I don't have those daily conversations over coffee.  I miss that.  But Haz claims to be doing just fine.

Thanks. It's a shame he doesn't visit this forum.  We all miss his input.

I was seeing some FB stuff from him, and that quit a while back. Now his account has been hacked, and I blocked it.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Yeah, he was posting via his wife's page, but I haven't saw much lately. Posts on the timeline go through October but don't know which of the two are posting it.
I just posted to ask how things are. I'll relay here if/when I hear something.

After asking how they were and how things are going, I got this reply on FB:

Quote
Luckily we doing all right, I'm lucky that I am healthy and a good health is where it's. Everyday is a new day, And thank you loving people who take time out of your busy lives to give me a shout, it really means a lot.
God bless you all and be well.

I know a while back he was pretty much bed-bound and was using a voice writing app to type messages (not 100% sure).

I let them know you guys were asking after Benny and that we all miss him here.
