I am shocked and speechless. It will take a while before I come to terms with the fact that he gone.
We spoke often, very often; about SitePoint, design, new projects, web, and WordPress markup that he was so determined to clean up. We would speak of his frail and sick mother who endured a year of intense agony before succumbing to death a few months back. And we would speak of his erratic computers that would conk out every other month. And he spoke to me only a two weeks ago asking he needed to interview me for SitePoint MOTM. I requested him to email me the questions. He never did.
Rest in peace my friend. You would be sorely missed. very very sorely.
