It is with great regret that I announce the sad passing of Greg Doran from
Ireland.  Greg was my friend and colleague and also friend to many XBase++
developers around the world.

Greg passed away suddenly yesterday.

May he rest in peace.

Greg made helpful contributions to the Xbase++ community on many
levels.  He had a brilliant mind and had extensive knowledge of
printers and printer drivers, having worked in that industry.  At one
point, quite some years ago now, he helped the Alaska development team
sort out some sort of unusual problem in the printer class.

He also made many contributions to developers here in the news group,
and was a good friend to me and to Top-Down Library, to which he made
some significant contributions.  His cheerful face was always a
welcome sight at devcons and I will miss him.


Regards,
Clayton

Hello Greg,



I don't know if they have an internet connection in Xbase heaven, but I sure 
hope they do!



We've met at the end of the last millennium on the Xbase newsgroups, I've 
been chatting with you in person a few times on several Xbase Devcons and 
we've been in close E-Mail contact for a long time. It has always been a 
great pleasure conversing with you, no matter where and how. To my last 
"Still-Out-There-Ping" I sent in May last year you answered you were still 
"going strong" although you suffered from diabetes. I was glad to hear you 
were well although that left me a little worried.



Now you have suddenly passed away on October, 1st,  which happens to be my 
birthday.



Thank you for having been with us for that long period of time, for all your 
wonderfully constructive postings and the cheerful private E-Mails I am 
happy to have received from you during those years. I hope you had the time 
to sort things out for your loved ones and provide for their future. 
Naaahhhh, I'm sure you did, old man from Dublin!



Looking forward to seeing you again some time and while still being on this 
side of eternity I will be looking for you whenever I'm flying in bright 
sunlight above the clouds. I wouldn't be too amazed if I suddenly heard a 
Saxophone play in my headset.



Cheers!

Michael
