Hello Everyone its Plumbob's wife here...

I just wanted to let you all know, that sadly Plumbob lost his brave fight on Friday 20.4.18 peacefully. He will be sadly missed by many family and friends and he also spoke 'highly' of the group. Can I ask you all to raise a Jack Daniels and Coke in his memory - many thanks for all your support and help, he loved making contributions to the group with his wit, advice and support - on behalf of Owen I would like to say a HUGE HUGE thank you - blessings to you all and I hope you all continue with your own personal aspirations and continue to fight your corners with the help of each other in the group - thank you....RIP PLUMBOB

Oh no, not Owen, I will miss him so much! I don’t need to tell you how brave and funny he was. He certainly always cheered me up and set the standard high with his positive attitude, & sheer determination to keep on “sucking it in”. Such a character and a real asset to our forum. Good on you Plumbob, you fought a great fight X

I know it's a late response but I have been in hospital and around the time of plumbobs passing I was not really well enough to read or reply to posts so I have now by chance just seen Owens reply to someone from 2 yrs ago and thought I would check in on his profile to see how he was doing as I had often wondered but cud not think of his username .....I'm so sorry for your loss and feel that his attitude was so inspiring as I too have a progressive rare illness and have been struggling but his posts and his fight for what was right was the best 😊...I hope you and your family are doing ok and would just like to say your husband was a true true gent obviously something you already know but he inspired so many people so glad he got what he fought so hard for so you his loving wife and family were ok xxxx⚘⚘rest in peace Owen (plumbob )....
