It reaches far and wide, Monbla...I very much enjoyed your typing up the stories here on BoB, the stories told and the times you spent together.

Tonight's pipe's goin' out to him for sure. Send him off at the services well, Mon. You were good to him, and he to you, it seems. Smile They don't make 'em like that anymore, do they?

My condolences for your loss, Monbla. There's no doubt how much you each meant to each other. My heart goes out to you, my friend.

Very sad to hear this Michael. Perhaps you can take comfort that you'll always have the fond memories of your time together, smoking pipes in a brotherly way and sharing memories and stories. No doubt your visits brought welcome companionship into his life.

And you'll have his pipes to look after from now on. What a connection you'll still have with him, knowing you'll keep the smoking lamp lit in his memory as you connect with him in this way.

Hope the hurt of his passing heals in due course, and you can remember the happy times with this special man and his friendship.

Thanks for sharing this difficult experience.

Sad


Cheers,

RR

I am sorry to hear of your loss. It sounds like you made a great friend and fellow pipe smoker. I'm sure he really looked forward to your weekly visits and talks. It sounds like they really meant a lot to him.

If only he could have known that all these pipe smoking guys who never met him were so touched by his friendship with Monbla.

Old Dunhills, not much tobacco left, a not-so-old friend, and a quick exit from the stage -- not a bad way to go. Sorry for your loss.

Very sorry Monbla. I like to tell myself that there is an unlimited supply of pipe tobacco in the after life (even Penzance and FVF!). I hope it's true.

Monbla,

Sorry for your loss. Obviously the time you spent with him meant an awful lot to him and his loved ones.

The next pipe I smoke will be in honor of "You," both for the wisdom you share here and for being a friend to some one in need of friendship. Very Happy

Monbla,

My condolances to you and his family. It's good to know that there are great people like yourself still in this world, who are selfless and take care of others in their time of need.

Michael, I apologize for missing this thread when it was first posted. I'm sorry for your loss, but you and your friend spent some of the best quality time there is, and in that respect no time was wasted. I'm sure you will enjoy thinking of him when you smoke his pipes, and I'm sure he would be glad to know you have them.

While I am saddened by your loss of a friend, I find so much good in this story. A friendship that helped an aging man through his old age. I am certain the moments you provided him were wonderful and appreciated. Your gentlemanly companionship is a very good thing, and gives me cause for joy.

You are a kind and thoughtful person for being a true friend to this man, your compassion will be rewarded. He is smoking his flakes in a better place now. We can all only hope to meet someone someone like you in our life.
