In memoriam - Drew Jensen

Post by Hagar Delest »

Dear All,

I just saw that in a log on the AOO wiki: Drew Jensen passed away in Oct 2021 - closing account

I don't know if some of you were aware but that was a sad finding.

Drew was a very active member of the community. Those coming from the know very well that this very forum is mostly his doing, with Terry.
Thanks Drew.

I would never have thought that he is no longer among us because I saw his contributions any time I investigated some Base related problem. I learned a lot from him.

Very sad news. I fully started using base from his contributions back in 2008. It was a mess before I found his examples

Only now do I hear the sad news. I'm sorry, I learned a lot from his posts too. A preier.
