While dealing with the death of a loved one is invariably difficult it is comforting to have other family members there to be a support. I am pleased to hear you daughters will be there with you.

 

I can't imagine having to go through the loss of a spouse. The grieving and emotional stress of it but then be expected to make all the necessary  arrangements. I'm sure God is blessing you and your family as you go through this difficult time.

 

It must be difficult to move at this point in your life. But you will most likely be glad you did. You will have the closeness, the love and support of your daughters and their families too.

 

I understand that I don't really "know" you but I am glad to meet you online. I am glad you felt like you could share with me. I would like to leave you with one thought considering what you are going through right now.

I hope Heavenly Father blesses you with the peace and the strength you need to see your way through this. Blessings to you....

Thank you so much for your kind words, Gary. One of my daughters is here with me now and another one is coming on Sunday. As you can imagine, I have been very busy over the past few days taking care of things which needed to be done. I have my moments during the day, but my nights are worse. He was very sick the last couple of months of his life. I know he is in a better place and no longer suffering. Will be moving from my current location, back closer to my children and family. Hard to leave my good friends here. Everyone has been wonderful to me, but it is for the best. Thank you once again.

Hi Carolyn. I am really sad to hear about the passing of your husband. There are no words sufficient to describe how hard it must be to lose a spouse. Myself I have never lost a spouse. I was divorced many years ago. I lost my mother at a young age for her. She was 63 when she passed.

 

I hope you have family near by to love and support you through this difficult time. Hoping your have many fond memories of your husband that will live with your for a long time.

 

I would have responed earlier but I have been locked out of the online community and my ability to read and reply to messages. Well yours is the only message I have had but I was unable to respond. I kept getting kicked out and asked to sign in again. And again. And again. I couldn't get any help online. I wrote them two messages about it and no replies. Then I called today and had to go through at least 3 different agents to get to someone who could help me. Then after spending half an hour with her she told me she would have to forward my problem to someone else and I could expect a reply or a fix in 5 to 7 days! What?! I tried to not lose my cool and just thanked her for trying to help. Just a few moments ago I decided to try again and was able to log on. Wooo hooo for me.

 

So again let me say I am sorry to hear of this difficult time for you losing your husband. I pray for your to be comforted in your time of need. Blessings to you...

Gary, I never could figure out how to do the private message thing. I wanted to let you know he passed Sunday morning at 2:06. Thank you for you kind thoughts and prayers.

Hi Carolyn. NIce to hear from you but I'm so sorry to hear the bad news with your husband so ill. I just sent you a private message as I didn't want to post a public message with the information about your husband being so ill.

 

I just learned how to send a private message on here so I hope you can access my message and read it. God bless you...

Hi Gary,

 

Maybe they will get this problem worked out. I certainly hope so.

 

Not able to play much, if any, these days. My husband is in ICU in critical condition with pneumonia. It doesn't look very promising for a recovery. He is a retired Marine with 30 years of service. Please, if you pray, please pray for him. He needs all of the prayers he can get.

 

I see it is your birthday week, so Happy Birthday and wishing you many more.

 

Carolyn E.

Hello, @g287693e, thank you for posting in the AARP Online Community and taking the time to provide great detail about the issues you've encountered with Tri Peaks. I'm sorry that the issue hasn't already been resolved. I've gathered all the information you've provided here and have escalated to the product team for resolution. I'll return to this thread with any updates that can be shared along the way. Thank you for being so patient and understanding. And, Gary, we hope you have a very Happy Birthday this week!

 Hi Carolyn.Yes the games are fun. I really enjoy this version of Tri Peaks. The older one has the cards so small and the game is kind of choppy for me. I don't enjoy that one much. I've been a member of AARP for at least two years now. I retired last year and turn the big 65 next week. Wow! How did we get old so fast?

 

I would think that when people are cheating and I call what is going on cheating, that it must be breaking some of the terms of service that AARP had outlined somewhere in the details. I just hate cheaters. What fun is it for someone to cheat at playing a game? I don't get it. It does ruin the game for me. You have a great high score. I think my best is 56,000. Some nights I can't get much of any score though. You can be smart at the game and use good judgement but if you don't get good cards it's tough to score very high. I am due for a good game soon. I hope, hahaha.

 

I looked and saw you are at least on the top 10 score board. I can't get anything over about 32,000 today. But there's still time. I will probably play some more tonight. Good to hear from you. And good luck getting a new high score.

Hi Gary, 

 

You are so welcome. I've been a member of AARP for over a year now. I am enjoying passing the time away playing these games. Many nights I can't sleep, and this is good theropy for me. Makes me sleepy and I am able to go back to bed.

 

I wish these issues didn't exist, but they seem too. I wish they would not allow these people to play the games, as well, but how do you keep members from doing this or even an outsider? I'm not sure they really care. If they made these games only available to members, maybe this would stop. I see many of the same people at the top of the leader board many nights. My highest score on Tri Peaks Solitaire is 70,500, I think. That shocked me, when I saw the score. Never reached it again, but have been in the 50,000 range a couple of times. No fun cheating! Maybe the other players don't realize what is going on.

 

I will look for your name the next time I play, which will probably be tonight. I have played some today, as well. Good luck to you too and Happy New Year.

 

Carolyn E.

Thank you for your reply. I was also alarmed when the scoring went into the millions. I mean it is impossible to score that many points in the game. I brought that to the attenion of AARP customer service. I saw that they fixed that problem but the other problem still exists.

 

I read another post about another game on AARP where the same thing was happening. People racking up scores that were higher than the game provides. From what was posted it looks like someone hacked the scoreboard and inserted their name and whatever point total they wanted.

 

Well that is still wrong! Sounds like what might be happening here. That same person winning top score every day by only 100 points. I'm sure they are having a fun time thumbing their nose at all the other players by doing that.

 

I'm like you. It does take the fun out of the game. If AARP knows this is happening I don't understand why they don't respond and expell these people. Just kick them out of AARP and off the games.

 

Thank you again for your response. I was beginning to wonder if anyone else was upset about this. I just found this community comment board last week so I decided I would post and see if anyone else responded. Good luck in the new year and hope to see your name on top of the leader board.

 

Gary E.
