    Broken pipe - Fred Bass

    A post from elsewhere:

    "Last night I saw that an Ebay vendor had a number of meerschaums listed and the ad detail said they were from the estate of Fred Bass. I posted this to the PipesMagzine.com forums and a member there contacted the seller, who confirmed that he was selling some of Fred's pieces for his wife."

    Fred had a superb meerschaum collection and much knowledge but was not everyone's favourite character.

    Having known him as an e-friend for many years though, I will say "Rest in Peace, Fred (and instruct God on how to smoke a meerschaum)".

    @Ally - that PS LBeF came from Fred.

    He will most assuredly do that. He had some magnificent meerschaums, some of the most intricately carved I have ever seen. Yes RIP.

    R.I.P. Fred, it's always sad to hear of a fellow pipe smokers passing.

    That is sad news. We have lost too many of our brethren lately.

    I'm very sad to hear of Fred's passing. He has contributed a great deal to our knowledge base through his forum posts and articles. Peace be with his family.
