    About a Friend

    Hello my friends at CodeGuru,

    in case you do not yet know, I'm here to give you some sad news.
    Our colleague and friend known as Wizbang has recently passed away. His father found out we had frequent email correspondence and gave me note that his son is not anymore with us.
    I thought, you, his friends at CodeGuru, should know that, too.

    I didn't know where to put that, so I put it here in the forum where we always met for solving VB6 problems.

    In Grief

    May his soul rest in peace.
    I was helped many times by WizBang..He had sent me sample projects to learn & get updated..I grieve deeply at his early demise.

    It seems he did not have many personal contacts even here in the forums...

    No, I think ,nowadays maximum visitors are not logging in..I see in the list that there are 102 Guests & 1 member(That's me).
    Furthermore, if Brad can Highlight this Thread at least...then others can see & pay respect/tribute to Wizbang.
    I strongly believe he has helped many in the forums when he was alive.
    I attract Brad Jones view into this .

    He was definitely a part of the Codeguru community.

    Thank you all for recognizing and commenting.
    Right Hannes, he really was a genius, not only in programming, and had a fast grasp on things. We often exchanged help with each other's projects.
