I haven’t seen him on SimHQ for several weeks and he hasn’t been on Steam in 18 days. He’s been in my thoughts recently.

According to his wife on Facebook he's going through a rough patch.


"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which The Party is always right." - George Orwell, 1984

For those on Facebook you can look for the group "Team Fritschie"

I don't use FB or any social media. Could someone who does use FB make a post on his thread? blog? and let him know that many here at SimHQ still care and wish him well and others are Praying for his Healing and Peace in his body. Thanks in advance to whomever would do this.

Don, keep fighting Sir and rejoice in the Blessings all around you. Be Strong Brother!

Be Blessed, Drew

^ Just seconding what Blade_Meister said, I'd appreciate it as well.

Ditto.

I hope he's doing better.

Losing Murphy has made me more sensitive about us losing log-term members and friends.

I don’t do Facebook, but if anyone has contact let him know we care.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Murphy was way beyond just here at Sim Hq, as you know.

He was a classic example of a law abiding American just TOTALLY SCREWED OVER by the system he protected most of his life.

I first got to "know" Murphy when we both built our first home build computers "live" on our Hardware and Software forum here.

I was, at one time in my life, somebody Murphy would have "targeted", We discussed this in private messages, and I am going to keep them private.

Murphy was certainly someone I would loved to had a beer or ten with...we would have laughed alot.

Bless ya brother. angel

Murphy was a great friend. We had many hours of conversations about his place and the wildlife he loved so much.
Miss him. Talking about Guns and his work as police officer. Feel my mortality slipping away these days.

I suppose we are all getting to that age now, those that started their virtual flying with EAW and suchlike...I'm nearly 69 and one of the youngest in our virtual squadron. One of our members is 89 in a few days, so he is the same age as the oldest aircraft in IL2 1946!
We still 'fly' regularly, but tend to forget what the mission brief was when the game loads.....

From Airdrops wife on her "Team Fritschie" Facebook page:


"Don is home on hospice now. He was so happy to walk through that door. We have a bed set up for him in the dining room. He is resting comfortably. He is so happy not to have late night vitals and lab pokes. There is truly no place like home."

It's great that he's home but I will keep him in my thoughts and hope that he somehow still beats this terrible disease. Thanks for the update.
