    Default Thinking of Fred Evans as I Post This;

    I try to stay up with our active members especially when they go silent for a long period. Some of you reading this may have received a 'Proof of Life' PM from me over the years. I don't like to pry because I understand that many things can occur in life that are way more important than posting to a forum but I do reach out when I notice someone MIA.

    Today I got a message from Lewis Chessman asking if I had heard from Fred lately and I woke up to the fact that I had not. I called another man I know down in Medford OR. who is one of Fred's friends and got the update on Fred.

    Fred suffered a debilitating stroke 2 weeks ago and is currently hospitalized in a facility where stroke victims receive physical therapy in effort to help them recover use of affected limbs etc.

    I thought it proper to post this because so many here have gotten to know Fred through his sometimes quirky, sometimes quite entertaining remembrances from a colorful life. Our mutual friend in Medford will carry best wishes from myself and on behalf of the forum at large in a visit tomorrow with Fred.

    I spent a little time with Fred and a number of other interesting folks when I spent 10 days fishing Oregon a few years ago, funny how time slips away.....

    Here's to you Fred

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    What a bummer to hear. Fred has always proven to be a good man, and most definitely is his own man. My father was raised in Medford, and that’s my connection to Fred. All the best to him and his family.

    Wow, that was a gut punch. This world needs more people like Fred, not fewer. I pray things go well for him, and we can read his unique thoughts again soon.

    Thanks for the update, Ard. It's better to know than not, but this makes me sad.

    Love Fred's posts, I gave up work 22 years ago to care for my mother who has had multiple strokes so I know the devastating effect they can have. My thoughts and prayers go out to you Fred, remember, there is always light at the end of the tunnel it just takes a little time to reach it.

    You should cross post this to the UK forum as well. He seems to be pretty well known over there as well.

    I hope he fully recovers.
