My name is Tammy. I was Rob's bestfriend in real life. He would send me script, php and many other things to try out for him that he'd been working on over the years. He was like my brother and last saturday night, while in Seattle, Washington he passed away. I know there were alot of you on this site that he spent time with either getting help or helping him with topics and I thought you should know he's not ignoring you... he's just no longer with us to be able to answer your questions.icon_cry.gif

Sincerely,
Tammy

icon_cry.gif I am truly sorry to hear this. Please pass my deepest respect and sympathy on. I will miss the wit and sarcasm from my friend Rob (the "Webmaster"); the man who saw in "tables" (and html, and script, and php, etc.) You will be missed indeed.

Remembrance

You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all he has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow
and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow
because of yesterday.
You can remember him
and only that he's gone,
or you can cherish his memory
and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back,
or you can do what he'd want:

Smile, Open Your Eyes,
Love and Go On.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow...
I am the diamond glints on snow...
I am the sunlight on ripened grain...
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle birds in circling flight...
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry—
I am not there... I did not die...

Thank you for informing us but this all seems so surreal, so please forgive my disbelief. I am still in shock from the first moment I saw this post. Perhaps if you could shed some light or share some details, maybe then I can have some closure.

Rob was pretty close to me. So please understand why I am requesting a few more details of what had happened. He sent me an offline on the 7th and now I feel so bad that I wasnt able to respond to him right away.

He will be sorely missed both as staff here at CZ and as a friend. May he have eternal rest and may perpetual light shine upon him.

Please extend our condolences to his family and most especially to his little daughter. He spoke of her many times....

I'd like to thank each of you (especially Tuffy for those two poems that really hit home for me) for the kind words and condolences that I will pass on to mom, his sister, his g/f and his daughter.

I am busy trying to deal with this, raise two children and run a family business but I know alot of you are wondering what happened to him. At first, when people on other sites he was known to be involved in were very inquisitive as to what happened, I got offended. My standard answer to them was "Does it matter how he died?". Over the last week, my husband has helped me to understand that it's just human nature to want to know why, how etc when someone dies. Right now it's still fresh and new for me so it's hard to talk about and at the same time, I know Rob would want discretion as to details. So, please give me time to absorb this and determine what Rob would say about me if it were me instead of him. He was my brother, not by blood but his family even has said in the past that we were so much alike that we should've been siblings. Mom isn't doing anything big far as services due to lack of funds and also we all felt that Rob wouldn't want anything extravagant. When his remains are sent to her from Seattle, there will be a small service for his family and a select few of his friends to remember him by.

Thank you for contacting me on YIM for assistance on where to post the news on CodezWiz. I was shocked to hear the news. He did so much for the community and we all appreciated his dedications. Rest assured that he is in a better place and he will always continue to watch over us.

I apologize for asking of what had happened to him. Take as much time you need to recover from an unexpected loss.

Thunder

OMG I had that feeling that he had passed away. Rob AKA God to me cause thats what he was to me he helped me out countless times and was always greatfull of his services he is deeply missed by me and others. we used to just joke around once awhile too id send him somehtign funny on yahoo and get him cracking up. So it wasnt always about the help he had to offer. and i cant belive i have only come accross this now.
