Archie - My Friend

Postby bob » Fri Feb 10, 2017 10:40 am

This is a public SOS for my friend and great supporter Archie.

I know I have been less frequent on the board over the past year, but I was saddened to see that Archie hasn’t been around either. He is very special to this board and to me, as he was the first “real” person to join the forum after development.
Archie I know you contacted me about a matter several months ago. I know you had a very clear view on what I should do. I apologise if my reaction was not what you wanted or expected. I want everybody on the board to be happy and friendly and more importantly to be sensitive to people’s views and feelings. Especially when a member doesn’t understand why another member may feel a particular way. I did PM you at the time but I heard nothing from you.

I also understand that you have not been in h best of health and if that is the reason why you have not been around, I’m sure I speak for us all in wishing you a speedy recovery.

Anyway whatever the reason, please PM me – it would be great to hear from you.

I initially was unsure whether to post seeing Bob's heartfelt plea to Archie who I understand has had health issues the reason for his possible absence. All I can add is this. I myself am seriously ill but find solace in talking to friends on this great site. So Archie if able to post please do as you are a vital cog to the running of this forum. :|

Cheers for the well wishes Bob. Sadly got some bad news last October. Been touch and go ever since. Not a lot I can do. No cure. Got to stay strong for my family. Thanks friend. :|

We've none of us forgotten Archie's local cinema, the needlessly demolished art deco Regal
