Has anyone heard from member Rolo? He hasn’t signed on since June 6th. He told me earlier in the year that he wouldn’t be posting much but he did check in and we communicated by PM. With such a long hiatus I am rather worried. He lives in Georgia which is COVID hotspot and is on regular dialysis and waiting for a kidney transplant and was inline to be getting one soon. I hope he's okay.

I sent him a PM at the end of June because I was already concerned at that point, and didn't hear back.

Hello everybody,

We texted last month. He was not doing well at the time. Nothing Covid related, but physically and mentally exhausted from the hard road he’s been on for so many years. Coincidentally, I sent him a text earlier this evening asking how he was. When he replies, and with his consent I will update. 
 

He is a great person and a dear friend, so it is nice to see people here that care about him.

It would be nice to live in a village, in the midst of fields and orchards. Jump on your bike and 15 minutes later you're at his gate, delivering a pie. Chit-chat chinwag, he's doing well enough and no worries. The world's gotten large and for all our technology, it's often hard to get in touch. 

 

Village with a nice park, large stream, gazebo, socials. We could "meet at Rolo's" and bother him til he smiled and ran us off.

 

He is a good spirit, a trooper. Have faith. And mind yourselves as well, please.

Rolo wants everybody to know the following:

 

”I’ve been too sick to really post anything, just don’t have the energy to do so. I appreciate their concern and think about them often.”

Terra,

 

I also was concerned and I did get in touch with him about the third week of May. He shared that he was in the hospital.. I sent him more   words of encouragement/   He obviously was having trouble...     On   May 29th    He emailed thanks   but added he did not feel like talking about it just now    .....     I respect   that    ..........I too noted his last sign on June 6th

 

We all wish him well and  a speedy recovery

 

good looking out folks   Thanks

I was also wondering about Rolo a couple weeks ago.  I don't post much, but I do read a lot and I really like Rolo's sense of humor, knowledge, and I always make sure to read any posts that I see from him.

 

If you read this, Rolo, please hang in there and fight!  I hope so much that you get that kidney very soon!  So you can get back to enjoying life.

 

Take care!

 

Jon

I got his phone number from a mutual friend and am going to try and give him a call tomorrow. Thankfully, he is still with us here on the Earth Plane, but he is dealing with some very serious health issues. I will convey to him everyone’s concern and good wishes.

I spoke with Rolo today and told him of all your well wishes. He’s very thankful for all the support he has gotten through the years from our Cloudy Nights family. He’s gone through a very bad patch this year but things are looking up. Best of all, he’s not just in line for his transplant but because of a very generous friend and donor, it’s scheduled to happen In less than two weeks,- August 20th! So please keep him in your thoughts and prayers and send him good positive vibes. After the operation there will still be a road to recovery and he will still need our good thoughts and prayers. 
 

GET WELL AND GOD BLESS OUR DEAR FRIEND ROLO!
