is there anything we can do? cash donation to favorite charity, flowers....
I haven't gotten back to his son yet, but when I do, I will direct him here and ask if there is anything we can do. I've been feeling so helpless for the last hour or so since I posted this, thinking it would have been nice to send flowers at his viewing, but obviously we can't do that now. I've been in his son's shoes. After my dad died, I sent out a few emails from his computer, my heart breaks for his family.
Strat was a really nice guy, I knew it from his posts, but the last month or so that we've worked on the web site together, I got to know him a little better. He was a very patient man, he had to be with some of the n00b questions I asked him about our web site control panel
In the beginning, he bought our domain for us, just because he was tired of us talking about it and doing nothing - lol
I tried to get a web team together. He made a few really good posts, I pm'd him asking him to join us, he'd ignore my question, but I persisted. lol I guess I eventually wore him down, he agreed to help me.
I had like 3 pm's written to him. He'd posted here
about what we've done with the web site, I'd pm'd him the next night, he never responded. I ended up condensing the 3 into 1, then decided to email him because I was getting really worried. It wasn't like him to not have internet. When he was on the road, he still logged in from hotels. I'm in total shock to hear this.
I looked to see if we had a spotlight on him, we don't. I wonder if his son would be willing to write up a tribute spotlight.
When the Chimp Challenge is done, I'd like all of our machines to point at Stratplan
, let's give him a send-off. I've asked Six for a custom title for him. This is Dick's last post
You know what that means...Time to gang up on stratplan!
I can remember reading it after he posted and laughing.
Rest in peace Dick, the team will miss you, I will miss you.
