orion1052003 Posted December 8, 2014 Share Posted December 8, 2014 It is with much, much sadness that I learned of the death of Jacques Groslouis. He was a great friend who I knew through the phone, email, skype, and letters in the mail. I never actually met him in person. He helped me learn TI BASIC and XB. He helped me try to write 3 game programs and other programs. He gave awards to TIer's of note until right before his death, and he still could think in complex programming ways terms even in old age. He was very generous helpful and nice. I even referred to him as 'Mon Oncle', My uncle in French. He was my 'TI mentor'. I hadn't talked to him lately, and when he didn't respond to a few of my emails, I googled his name, and sure enough. http://www.inmemoriam.ca/view-announcement-450740-jacques-jack-groslouis.html Although he had cancer, he seemed available and in better health lately, so It must have been something sudden. I knew him for over 10 years, he was always helpful, and I miss him powerfully already. Frankly, I feel terrible. To remember the good times, he was always there to help me, impart his knowledge, and I enjoyed being his friend. James 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
