    Default Phillip Allen: Has anyone heard from him?

    His last Log in was 10/21.

    I got his phone # from Spinnner, I called 3 or 4 times yesterday and once today. No answer and he as not set up his voice mail.

    I now have darker suspicions. Hope someone can dispel them.

    Not good.

    Hope he's okay.

    He posted that he'd reached a critical stage of congestive heart failure— it didn't sound good.

    She may not have thought (or known how) to blip someone from here, if things did take a turn. She will clearly have had larger concerns.

    He did mention hospice care, but I can't find an obituary for a Philip Allen near Springfield. I did find one from Lonoke, AR. but that isn't where Philip lived.

    Well, didn't some say they tried to call him? Is the phone still working or has it been disconnected? You know the phone and electric don't like the bills not to be paid.

    I guess I'm on a number of ignore lists. Not sure what I've done to offend folks - but sorry!

    And not just to you. It is often someone kneejerking to the last post without reading the thread.

    I just checked my search history. It was for Springdale and Fayetteville, I just wrote it wrong in the post. I used to have in-laws in Springfield, MO which isn't all that far away from Springdale.

    Sorry... did you say something?? <G>

    I know the feeling, though. Sometimes it seems like folks only read the title before responding... or only read the last thread, then fire away.

    I DO hope Phillip is ok. He's a truculent old knucklehead... but he's OUR... etc.

    If it's any consolation, I've recently delisted you.

    I think what Philip said was that according to his doctor, his heart condition qualified him for hospice care, not that he was in hospice or planning to go soon.

    Just took a peek at FaceBook, but there are a great many people of that name and adding Springdale, AR got no result.

    I fear the worst. I hope he is finding the peace that escaped him, here at least, in recent years.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Peter's link in #26 contains an address if that can help in any way.

    Calling the town office building in his village may help.
