I don't know how many of the old guard still haunt these halls? But we lost one of our founding members and former fellow global moderator's knightone recently. He was, and will always be my friend. So I think it is only fitting that a quote from TWOK to mark his passing.

"We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted, in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human."

Like Don I knew Robin starting from way back on the old boards. He was a great guy and always willing to help someone out when they needed something and would rarely ask for anything in return. He always had a well thought out response for his opinions and never flamed the boards. He will be missed.

I remember him from the old Art Asylum forums. That really was longer ago than I'd care to admit lol. May he rest in peace and may his spirit find everlasting eternity. He always was very kind and had a distinct diplomatic way about him.

I remember him from ages ago as well, haven't seen much of him around lately, infact a lot of old faces haven't been around, Sallah, FHC, HSBR.... he among others were some of the people that helped out out a lot in my early years here on the forum and with the New Force Site. Sad to hear the news :(

More than welcome, Gothneo, I just wish it was under better circumstances than delivering the sad news of some of ours dear friend's passing. Truly gentle soul with a good heart. Not to mention a staple in this forum from the beginning. Thank you all for sharing your special memories of him. I'm sure he'd be touched.
