I just received an email from Bob´s wife. He has been doing well but the cancer spread and he has been going downhill since Thanksgiving. He passed away last month.
I did not always agree with Bob but I always enjoyed his great attitude and interesting comments. For those of you who have not read his work, please take a minute to go by and see some of his work here on Hubpages. https://hubpages.com/@bobbamberg Some of his pet articles have been moved to Pethelpful, but I think his most successful hub is a Degarden article about the ladybug invasion that takes place in Massachusetts every year.
Those of us that did know him thank him for his contributions.
Didn't know Bob but I'm always concerned when a fellow writer here is ill. Hope for the best for his family.
Hey, DrMark, like all hubbers, I am not familiar with all the writers on HubPages. Thanks for the information. I felt for the family he left behind. May he rest in peace.
I didn't know Bob Bamberg. Very sad news. Condolences to his family. Cancer is a very cruel disease.
What a shame. I didn't know him, but best regards to his family.
It’s sad when a writer here dies. I didn’t know Bob, but I’ve seen his name at various places on the site over the years. I’m sorry about his death and sorry for what his family must be going through.
God bless.... I will head to his page now. And Thank You 4 the up date.
My heart goes out to Bob's family. Losing someone to cancer is not easy by any means. I wish Bob more adventures and hope continues to write wherever he decides to go.
Dr. Mark, thank you for posting about this. This makes me so sad! I saw the discussions between the two of you on some different articles and while you certainly didn't always agree, I appreciated that you were both so respectful of each other and your differences. If more people conducted themselves this way, our world would most certainly be a better place. We will keep Bob's family in our prayers. Hope all is going well for you. One of my Brazilian friends just sent us a care package with Brazilian coffee, real Brazil nuts and some guarana. We will enjoy it all with gusto!
Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I didn't know him personally but had seen his name and comments on some hubs and in forums. Condolences to his family.
I also didn't know him, but my heart goes out to the wife and family he left behind. May God give them the fortitude to bear the loss.

What do you think about the idea of having wills set aside for each and every writer here on the hubpages platform? I've had this discussion in the past with another hubber within the community and we thought that it would be an interesting forum topic. If you were to suddenly pass on, wouldn't it...

What happened to fellow hubber Brenda Durham? She is no longer on HubPages.

Have you ever come across or met a fellow hubber in real life? If so, how was the experience?The Hubpages community is so friendly and supportive. I really wish to meet some if not all of them in person, in real life. If it happened to you, how would you feel?

I just learned from a special friend here on HubPages that our beautiful Hubber friend, Skye2Day has gone on to be with the Lord. Skye (Patti) has been a member of HubPages for seven years! She has not been active here in the past couple of years, but her memory lives on in her...

With all the silliness and high school drama that is all the rage these days I thought I would balk the trend with this forums thread. Instead of complaining about this or that hubber I ask you to say something nice about this or that hubber. There are many I can say nice things about and first to...
