He was abrasive and foul-mouthed.

No, we are not. Realized there was another Patrick on BE and that was the one referred to. He and his wife had multiple foster children if I am remembering correctly. Ignore my post.

I think you are talking about Patrick Hasler Rete...not the original Patrick...http://britishexpats.com/forum/members/patrick-2136/.

He made several posts on the UK Yankee site about a month ago in mid-September. His only comment concerning his health was "As a result of health issues I no longer spend time on internet forums". Nothing more was said about how he's doing.

Thank you for posting that OAP.

My dear friend Dolly passed away. :(

Desi was banned after repeated warnings. I think Gruff and Cinds left us for FB. :(

The Granddaddy of BE Ray posts when he can.

Does anyone have things in place to post anything on the internet if anything happens to them. Back in the past an advert in the local paper would suffice to inform everyone that knew you. My wife has access to my passwords should anything happen to me and vice versa. Just curious what other people have in place.

Quite often a family member will let us know...either by phone, PM/email or post on here.

Sometimes a family member has opened an account so they can post.

You can register for something like "Dead Man's Switch" (There are a few around). Ok in principal I guess, so long as it doesn't misfire.

When I go the internet will breathe a huge sigh of relief. :D

People I miss...

Ray
AWP
Rushman
Patrick Hasler
Deb
Sarah
Britvic

It was a very different BE when the above members were around. Tears of laughter often ran down my face. I also miss the old Leslie. ;)

There are a handful of members who I was glad to see the back off...but I will keep the names to myself. :sneaky:

All my passwords are saved on the computer. My wife can access any of the sites I frequent if something happened to me. Would be up to her if she wanted to or not.
