Please accept heartfelt condolences from Wikimedia Australia on the passing
of such a young life. At this time we think on his family and his Wikimedia
colleagues and friends. We can know a person through their authorship and so
their soul lives on through their writing. His writing and his passion for
spreading the word about how to be part of Wikimedia is forever part of the
global movement that mourns his passing.
