Do You Remember 8KidsDad?

He hasn't been here in a few years. Got tired of being reported for speaking his mind.

He and I are friends on facebook. He recently fell ill and is dying.
I know he ruffled a lot of feathers here - but he did give some good advice. His wife is really sweet and being as positive as she can - knows since he is in Hospice care - the time is near.

I know we all go through a lot in life. We've made some good friends here. While not a question that is typical for here - can you send good vibes, prayers, etc. his way?

If you have anything nice to say about him? I will pass your words on to his family.

What can I do next?

I remember him. It was always interesting to see what he had to say. Didn't always agree with him but that's not what this site is about. Loved that there was a dad out there that was able to give a mans perspective. That is very sad to hear.

I am sorry to hear this. I do not remember overlapping with him but I have read his responses on some old posts and it was interesting to see "dad perspective".

One suggestion: maybe his wife would like to sign up for Mamapedia if she has not already, to read his old posts? If you type 8kidsdad into the MP Search feature (the magnifying glass at top of screen) it even pulls up some old posts of people saying how much they like his responses (like in one old thread about "who are your favorite posters here" a bunch of people name him).

I remember him. It was great to have a dad’s opinion in the middle of all the moms’ opinions.
He clearly cared about kids and families and not just his own. Sending him prayers of peace.
