Chema Celorio, a long time friend was killed in a skydiving accident this weekend. He was one of those rare people gifted with an infectious enthusiasm. A conversation with him invariably left you wanting to smile and share the excitement. As a bonus he also had just the right type of perse mind to do really effective QA. Having once razzed him that my grandmother could find more bugs, he turned around and filed 30+, nice, repeatable, coherent reports in one weekend.
I'll miss him.
/me heads off to hug the kids.
