    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    David Hueben, a long-time member of this community, passed away last Friday. I thought many of you would remember him and want to know.

    He was a good friend who struggled badly with depression after suffering detached retinas in both eyes.
    Diabetic since 5/2001

    Oh dear. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time. No time of year is a good time for these things, but during the holidays make it so much harder on the families.

    I am not a frequent poster, but David was always so thoughtful and helpful. He will truly be missed.

    Again, prayers for his family.

    Thanks for the update Michelle. I know he hadn't been posting much lately. I always wish I could have done more for him. This is the dilemma often with online friends.

    Oh my Michelle, I wrote/ emailed him on Sat. and he never returned the email which is not like him - so I just picked up the phone and started dialing his number when I saw this.

    Thank you for letting us know David H will be missed by many for all that he did. I will miss him greatly as he too was a friend of mine.

    My prayers go out to his son and other family members as this has to be very hard for them. Deb
    I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.

    Oh my! I was just thinking about him this morning. He was very knowledgeable about Diabetes and a valued member of this community who will be missed.

    He definitely will be missed. I will pray for condolence and for comfort for his close friends and family.
