I didn’t know exactly how to say this, but to put it bluntly, Leonid Surpin’s family does not want to be contacted.
During a search for one of his videos, I received a response from a family member who told me of his passing and at my request, gave me permission to report it here.
When Seth asked for an address, I contacted this family member again and asked if they minded if I shared their address with Seth and/or our group, and the answer was that they did not want any further correspondence because it was too painful.
I hope this was not a reference to the painful memory of how some obnoxious Orchid members ran him off of the forum. It was the reason why Orchid went from being busy to not-so-much. All one needs to do is to read our archives to know exactly which members are an embarrassment.
Regardless of what is causing pain to his survivors, they asked to be left alone and I personally think if there are any Orchid members who have good taste, they should know better than to try to contact his survivors.
