So sorry to hear about Dr. Raoul. I will keep his family in my prayers. My memory could be wrong but I believe it was Dr. Raoul who responded to me when I inquired about a bus which was leaving from Philadelphia for the Gathering of Eagles down in D.C. I got up at 4 in the morning so I could leave early only to discover that my husband had gotten up early to check my car. It sat out in the driveway all night blocking the garage door—we only have a one-car garage. He told me it was totally encased in ice and there was no possible way we could get it thawed out in time for me to drive down to Philly! My heart was broken. I e-mailed Dr. Raoul to explain why I hadn’t shown up. If only we’d left it out in the street I could have taken my husband’s car. I fretted over that the entire day, knowing I was missing an awesome gathering.

Prayers for his family, and that they take comfort in our LORD. By HIM all things consist, and HE will come again, and wipe away all tears.

Matthew 11:28-30
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

This is a real shock.

I have quite a few photos of him.

Tell me how to get them to you.

RIP Raoul. ‘Pod.

God bless him and his family.They will be in my prayers.I met Doc at a Freep in Philly at a Hillary book signing.I went with my daughter and there were a few Freepers from the area there plus a radio personality who interviewed Doc later.There lots of cameramen and I was interviewed.Never saw the witch she went in the back way.Doc was nice-he gave us signs and he had a loud speaker.People were laughing as they walked by and making dirty Clinton jokes.Forgot my camera.Talked to him in freepmail and he gave me good advise and it rolled just the way he said.We became friends and then he left.I thought it was to stay hidden and didn’t question it.I do remember Hillary saying a devil was following her all across the U.S.Doc and I laughed about that.It was him.

I have been wondering where he was. Even looked up his user id a while back. He hadn't posted for a few years.

Freustratingly ... my knees are gone, aches everywhere, eyes bad and I re-read my posts two or three times before posting because I think things I think I've typed, only to find I skipped over the typing part.

I think it's a combination of lysdexia and sometimers merging into a new malady.

I call it ol fartiness .. except I still have a lot of my Boston accent and in English it's ol fahtiniss

Who can forget the this classic announcement the Doc would say outside the exit of the Clinton Whitehouse with his megaphone?

“Ladies and Gentleman, the Whitehouse has made an announcement. Buddy the Dog is missing. In case you can’t tell the difference between Buddy and Bill Clinton, one will hump your leg, the other is a chocolate lab!”

Always got hysterical laughter from the exiting tourists.

Ouch. RIP Doctor. Met him once when you (Abner) were flying one of your balloons at the Balloon Festival in Goshen, CT. He was very nice to my kids (as were all FReepers who were there).

Thanks for the ping. Doctor Raoul was the guy in the devil suit that Hillary! complained about on the Jay Leno program during her senatorial run. Doc would wear the devil suit to protests and carry a sign saying “Bill Clinton married my sister.”

Raoul was everywhere! We didn’t know how he did it all and manage to get enough sleep. He was also generous to a fault. He went to several balloon events with us and we considered him part of our regular crew.

He would show up at the office with pizza and little toys or candy. He always had something.

Thanks, I’m doing great.

Classic Doctor Raoul. In front of the White House at a protest and at every Clinton protest thereafter—Doc’s “Cops Cheer” group saying in unison a la over a cop’s bullhorn:

Bill Clinton
We have you surrounded
Drop the cigar
Step away from the intern
And come out with your pants up!

Godspeed, Doc.
