    Hey B-Hatters:

    I suppose many of you were wondering what happened to me, so I feel
    that I owe my black hat brothers and sisters an explanation.

    To put it simply, my mother passed away about 3 weeks ago. She suffered a stroke and then had a second stroke in the hospital and passed away as a result. So it was necessary for me to take care of her estate and all of the other stuff that goes along with the passing of one's parent.

    I have lost both of my parents in the last two years and yes . . . it is very
    sad. My parents taught me much about life and death and I miss both of them terribly. However, they also taught me to stay positive in spite of whatever happens in life and for their sake as well as my own, that is what I intend to do.

    Anyway, I am back now, and I am sure that I have a lot of PM's to catch up with and a lot of cleaning up to do in the Member's Download section. I just wanted to take a moment to explain my recent absence from the forum.

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Wiz... prayers are with you. I've lost both of my parents, so understand the emotions and legalities. Not a fun time, but we can learn from it. As for missing you... of course,,, my hard drive is waiting for another "Wiz Fix"

    I hope that you are doing well after this. I have been thru it with my parents as well.

    For me the emotion of grief is one that I can not control or master. It kicks my ass everytime. It also makes me realize how precious life is and that we as humans all have a terminal disease. Called " LIFE"

    From the moment we are born we start to die, the time in between is golden.

    Don't waste a moment of it !

    Everday it crosses my mine to get busy living.

    I wish you all the best.

    Bro Wiz :)

    I never actually missed you, as many here in BHW keep insisting on following your Rules(like VirusTotal :D) you implied in Downloads section, so your name was always there in my head ;)
    Anyways, my Condolences to your Mom's Sudden Demise :(.You can make her RIP just by following the Golden Principles your Parents have taught you from the Beginning :)

    Hey Gizmo sorry to hear about that. I found this quote when my grandmother passed, i hope it makes since to you.

    It is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside, when the soul is to enter into real life; 'tis rather an embrio state, a preparation for living; a man is not completely born until he be dead: Why then should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals?

    Benjamin Franklin, 22 February 1756

    oh by the way welcome back

    Althought it wasn't necessary, you shared a very personal experience with us and left us with the same gift they left you, thank you for that.
    Both of my parents have also moved on, but I know they're waiting for me when its my time to leave here. I'm hoping to leave my son with gifts as valuable that you and I have been given from those we were blessed to call mom and dad. I learned what to do from my mom and what not to do from my dad, so both lessons had great value.

    Stength to you my friend...

    welcome back wiz! be strong. even though they're no more with you, but their bloods are in you and that's what makes you you today. nothing can be changed.

    just walk and walk, look to the front, it's your journey.

    this is what we call life.

    be happy, stay focus, smile.

    tomorrow will not be the same day as today.
