Sounds like a good idea to me but to discuss it please open a new thread on the future of Textgarden and link to it from here.

Re: A Terrible Sadness

Keep textgarden open, and like Mary suggested, put in a well-thought dedication to Sivni, it seems like the right and thoughtful thing to do.


The text persuades, the *notes prove。

I second that motion.

Re: A Terrible Sadness

@Stu
would you mind opening up a thread on the textpattern section regarding the textgarden issue. I have the feeling this thread here should stay open for those how like to express their feelings, condolences and for Siverts mother to see how much Sivert was respected by our little community.

Re: A Terrible Sadness

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die”, I think this quote from Clyde Campbell is appropriate since many of us will miss and remember Sivert’s enthousiasm, talent and dedication. Having lost my brother a few years ago, I know this in no way will fill the big void that close ones feel, yet for me having people remember and carry a part of my brother’s “spirit” helped.

I remember Sivert inspired me, and that he was the one who had me starting the whole template contest thing, and when Dean asked me who I would consider to run textgarden.org, Sivert’s name came naturally and he did as good a work with this project as he always did with his templates…

This is a real loss for us all, and I feel just like MsContrary that even though I never met him, I knew and appreciated him and will miss him…

I agree about textgarden going on, with a special dedication to Sivert.
I also suggest we textpatterners all point to this page from our blogs, a testimony of our appreciation for Sivert.

Re: A Terrible Sadness

I feared this. Very sad news. I felt for his struggle.
While reading this thread, I just happened to be listening to this:

“But I can still recall the sting of all the tears when he was gone
They said he crashed and burned
I know I’ll never learn why any boy should die so young
We were racing, we were soldiers of fortune
We got in trouble but we sure got around
There are times I think I see him peeling out of the dark
I think he’s right behind me now and he’s gaining ground”

From Meatloaf’s “Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are”

Somehow, it seemed appropriate.

Re: A Terrible Sadness

Tonight Anne-Mette, mum of Sivert, send an email saying:

I’m overwhelmed by the words from your community. Could you please send this regard from me:

Your words certainly are warming evidences of care and thoughtfulness. The loss of Sivert is full of pain, but it’s true, knowing that his “spirit” is rembembered and carried (davidm) by you, helps.
Siverts brother will read your words when he returns from abroad tomorrow night. I’m glad he has this thread in prospect.

Kind regards to you from Anne-Mette

Re: A Terrible Sadness

R.I.P.

I feel like crying even having only known the man through his blog and forum posts. My heart goes out to the family and especially to Sivert himself.
