Guys,and Galls ,
I asume ,you all know the beautiful voluntary work Vitolo has been doing over the years.

I am proud to call Vito my friend, but it's a friend online, i live in Nz and Vito in Arizona(I believe).
but I always planned to visit him after all the Rona stuff and the likes.2

He is not on line now since I thought 8 March.....?... nor email checks....:\🥺. I am worried.

I think to remember that @ChooChooCharlie ,Send him a package with goodies around that time...🧐, I can not private message @ChooChooCharlie, because well he blocked me anyway.
If you read this Choochoo, can you please send me an pm???🙏.
Did you get contact?, do you know how Vito is?
Or Any one? This is such a good guy, I just need to know if he is right?
thanks in advance.:leaf:

He hasn't been to Vapor Asylum since March 6th. I hope he is well, but the odds are he's either very, very sick or he has passed on. Unfortunately, he had prior physical ailments, If he is gone, I wish him well. He tried to make the world a little bit better.

I've been searching obituaries in AZ. I don't think he has passed. I don't know what to say.
There's only obit notice if someone chooses to post it publicly. I got the impression that his wife was his only family & we know how that went. Let's pray in whatever way we individually feel comfortable (🙏, :spliff:) for a good outcome until we know otherwise. Maybe it's benign enough that he lost his internet service & can't get to a library. 🤞

Vitolo's absence has saddened me so. Whether Vito has passed on or not, I grieve his absence. And I grieve the other FC folk who have traveled on. Max. PhotoRyder. Etc. Some have gone due to illness. Some have gone due to old age. Some are just tired of the forum.

Vito was just a year older than me. I am at an age at which my friends and contemporaries are winking out. It's the Cycle of Life in practice. My musical heroes are passing. I am not afraid to die: it's just the passage I'm concerned about. I really hate pain. Here's hoping for a massive stroke when it's my time!

Not me. No no no.

I would like to “go out” spending the evening with two 20 year old hookers. The mortician wont be able to remove the smile from my face.

All kidding aside, I hope Vitola is alive and well !!

Yeah, I agree. I believe there was a Mark Twain quote that said something like I didn't exist for billions and billions of years before I was born, and it didn't inconvenience me one bit. It will be the same after I am dead...or something like that.

I'm not scared of death at all. It's the possible pain and suffering I could experience as I'm dying that is scary. Like, the idea of wasting away in some hospital bed for months or more in misery as I slowly die from some illness or disease is quite terrifying.

Anyway, back to Vitolo.
I'm just really hoping we hear he's ok soon. The people who work selflessly to help others who are suffering are some of the best of us.

Old & In the Way
Echoing the sentiments here, wondering makes it more difficult.
Missing Vito for weeks, been poking round asking friends here.

I had recently begun to ponder the folks who we get to "know" pretty well here and then are gone, and we often don't know why.
FC is the only social media I've ever jumped into, it really is different here the sense of community is palpable.

Wherever Vitolo is, he can rest knowing he has been a great teacher, appreciated by so many..

Crosseyed & Painless
I was in denial for weeks over this thread and before that, his absence. Vito and I did not have a lot of conversations, but the ones we did have were always wonderful. I'm not thinking the worst until I hear it. I took a few years absence from here when I lost a job and quit consuming; so I'm hoping it's something like that.
Love you Vito and I hope you're well.
