We are a wondrous gathering of atoms formed into an incredible being,
capable of experiencing our own existence. While we live this experience
we must be thankful for it, and live it fully. When it ends, we return
to what we were before it began. What we create and leave behind is our
gift to those who will follow us. We return to the universe as we came
from it, to be recreated, and recycled into the infinite all.

A sad day indeed. Uwe also owed me a Namibian beer, but I will raise a
glass of the local brew to him and his memory.

I'm saddened to read this. I've benefited greatly from his posts here
as well as his work with KDE, as have a lot of others.

Neil,
Thanks for letting us know. That's really terrible news. He was a
great contributor and always pleasant in his communication. I will
miss him.

Cheers,
Mark

Does anybody know what the cause of death was? Did he have cancer,
heart attack or something?


Thanks

Kidney failure, apparently. According to
http://www.linux.org.na/index.php/topic,246.0.html he had been ill for a
while.

A sad loss whatever the cause.

I notice the site said he was ill for a while so I figured he had cancer
or something like that. Kidney failure is not good either.


It is a sad loss for sure.

Sad, sad news. I hardly knew him, but I did know of him through his posts. He
has many mourning his passing. A testament to how close our community is.


I echo the sentiment, may he rest in peace.

He will no doubt be remembered by many others,
but survives also in my commonplace book of sayings :

Uwe Thiem [Gentoo User 080119] : "He hit the nail on the finger".
