I have today received a pm from Tony explaining his recent absence from our forum.
He has logged out of both this forum and .net as he is caring for his beloved wife Ralda. She has been in the 'Help The Aged Care Home' for some time but Tony finds it hard not to be with her at all times. The carers don't always stay for long, there is a large turnover of staff and anyone who is any good tends to find a new job or fail to turn up, as the pay is so poor. Both Tony and Ralda are well but Ralda is an Alzheimer's sufferer and Tony feels that he just cannot afford the time to post on the forums anymore. He will pop in to see how things are going whenever he gets a chance. Tony had posted over 21,000 posts.

I am in personal touch Dave and will keep my ears and eyes open the best I can. He updated me approx.10 days ago. I WILL DO WHAT I can in my limited way and keep you all informed.

Very sad. His postings are always worth reading.
