I em my DD my excel spreadsheet of pw's periodically, when its time to update it. Forums are on there.

i don't do that. i don't trust that sort of thing to anyone else directly. i've had too many people i know have their e-mail accounts hacked, so if i were to do it it would have to be super-dooper-encrypted and the only unencryption key would be said to them in person and they'd be told to never write it down or send it via e-mail to anyone, etc. since there is nobody i trust to do this sort of thing in my family it is all here in my head and people can get access after i'm dead via the normal processes of filing a beneficiary claim, etc.

Friends: I was scrolling thru FB and noted that Bobm's DD is having a yard sale. I pm'd her and this is what she gave me permission to post:
Thank you! He was Lithuanian not European. My mother; Karen, was ill back in 6/2016 but she is great now. She is still processing the passing of my father. They were married 52 years; 6/21/23 would have been 53 yrs. I relocated from Fresno to BG Washington in 2019 to help care for my father with his health declining and now we are going to be moving back down to CA to where my daughter and new granddaughter still reside. My mother will be coming with me

This was on his birthday, and also the same day that he last checked into TEG:

Yes feel free that was taken on 2/19/2023 for his birthday. He had just gotten out of the hospital

I was talking via messages to Bay about Bobm and decided to mail her some of his Japanese maple tree seeds he gave me back in November 22. I've had them in my refrigerator.

This led up to me looking him up, since he's in the next town. Bob was quite ill, on dialysis two or three times per week. He's got a fascinating history, of which Baymule can fill in as her memory is better than mine!

Sadly, he passed in March. He was a rascal with eyes that twinkled and shone with knowledge and wit.

Robert Manelis Sr., 82, Battle Ground, died March 11, 2023. All County Cremation and Burial Services.

His wife, Karen, you might remember, was an IRS auditor and boy oh boy, the stories of her findings and his adoration of her were very memorable. She was quite ill when I met her last winter. But she survives him at this point.

I'm sad to be bereft of his gardening and herd animal knowledge.
Wow I was just wondering about him recently. He was such a great gardener with so much knowledge. I have missed his posts. Thanks for looking him up and passing along this information.

I am so glad they have a wonderful family to take care of them. We loved your Dad's posts.
