Normally I don't blog about non technical subjects.  But for a great guy I make an exception.

Last night while browsing the Tam Tam intranet I saw Mart Mullers post about Patrick's death.  I was completely shocked...
Even more because I, because of busy times at work, only came to read about his death Yesterday

Even though I'm currently not a SharePoint developer I had the chance of attending a SharePoint course given by Patrick at Tam Tam.  Being a Belgian aswell it was nice to have a fellow Belgian for the SharePoint training here (@ Tam Tam).  Later on I met Patrick on the TechEd 2006 (Barcelona) where he invited me to come along with the other Belgians and his colleagues to go out in Port Olympique.  I will never forget this guesture of hospitality.  Since I was alone there (as the only Belgian from Tam Tam in Barcelona at the National gathering) it was nice to feel involved.  And this was just how he was, friendly, without counter-expectations.  I remember him as a passionate person, and I will always remember and admire him for all of this.
Because of his deep impression he left me this struck me really hard last night, and I have to admit that I shed some tears.  But no tears will ever wash away his memory.  His knowledge will be alive in all SharePoint developers and this way he will definitely never be forgotten.

My condoleances go out to his family, friends and colleagues.  I hope you all can find the strength to continue where he left off to make sure his legacy stays alive.

Patrick, I strongly believe that we'll meet again someday, and I'll buy you a beer then, one of those (belgian beers) that you used in your courses....
