My friend Ilovesteptoe, Where are you?

Ilovesteptoe, where are you mate??
It’s been a huge pleasure to chat with folks here over the years, some of whom I’ve got to know. And as any regular visitor to this, Bob’s Steptoe Appreciation Society forum realizes, ILS is one the funniest & fiercely intelligent people here. Yet, without warning, a few months ago he suddenly vanished.
He casually mentioned his illness (the nature of which I knew but he didn’t specify publicly, so neither will I) to Bob in another thread, so I’m not breaking confidence that ILS was quite ill. Nonetheless.....never, not once in our many, very lengthy, private conversations over the years, did he ever moan. Not once. And his mind and sense of humour was so finely tuned, I’m having great difficulty believing that, presto, all of a sudden, he went. I won't believe that.
Neither was he ever one to lose his bottle; ergo an unpredictable impatience or boredom with this forum is more than a little unlikely. I’ve written him at home in Swansea and there’s been no response, that scares me.
I know he was quite close with his family so if his brother reads this, please let us know what's happening.
It was wrong to put off writing this thread until now, I deeply regret that.
But we haven’t forgotten you ILS, please respond dude.
And, as always, please give our best to Molly, Smudge & Coconut.
Kittie says howdy! ...cheeky cat has never seen a horse but still thinks he’s John-effing-Wayne :roll:.
Gobeithio eich bod i gyd yn iawn mate, rydym i gyd yn colli yn fawr iawn.
Cofion diffuant, eich ffrind dan sylw,
"I'm a rag n' bone man, I'm not a poxy grave robber!"
