Reinier helped be on a couple of projects recently - I relied on his knowledge of Firebird DB.

I am shocked and saddened by this news.  He gave me no clue that he was ill.  My condolences to his family.

This also came as a shock to me, as I wasn't aware of his illness.  :(

I only know him through this forum, but he helped me many times and when the question wasn't his area of speciallity, he always tried to point me and many others in the right direction. He gave a great contribution to this forum and Lazarus project through his work.

Rest in peace BigChimp,

I'm new here, just silent reader type. But I'm sure saw his name all around the forum.
Really great loss for this community. I'm sure many people will still be helped by his post even long after he's gone.  :'(

My Condolences to his family and friends.

I'm sad to hear this news. BigChimp is like everyday in this forum helping people, answering all kind of questions. He was a good person.

Rest in peace, BigChimp.
