    Hi, I am Cathy Davis. Mark Davis' sister. Mark has gone completely blind. That's why he hasn't been in the forum for the last 7 yrs.
    He really misses everybody. He's been in hospital from November 2019 to June 2020. He had an infected foot and had to have a toe removed but back home and doing fine.
    He really loves everybody. He's still playing guitar.

    Hi Cathy. We really appreciate you checking in with us. Mark was one of the regulars here, as you know, and we miss having him around. I remember him very well and do recall his visual impairment and his determination to participate regardless. I'm glad he's home and doing well and still playing. I wish him well.

    Glad to hear he's doing better! Give him our best! He was before my time, but a TDPRIer is family.

    Thanks for the update, Cathy.
    I’ve wondered how Mark is many times.
    I’m happy to hear he is still playing.
    Please tell him Howdy for me.

    Hi Cathy, Mark stopped participating before I joined, but we're all family in here.

    Sorry to hear he had to be in the hospital for so long, but it's good to hear he's back home. Please tell him we're thinking of him and sending positive thoughts.

    As a side note I work as a professor for an audio school and we do have vision impaired students from time to time. Today there is robust software aid to help someone like Mark interact with the outside world. Does Mark have the ability to use such software?

    Kindly,

    GDR

    Thank you Cathy for letting us know about Mark. Usually when a family member reaches out to the forum it's not good news, but it's great to hear that Mark is still upright and breathing and importantly playing guitar.

    Please send him my best wishes from Australia.
