Our good friend Rob Ratliff has passed away in a fishing accident where he drowned in the ocean.
I don't feel quite right posting this, but his family wants his friends to know. Rob spent a lot of time online, and due to the nature of this type of communication, the Internet now becomes a tool to deliver this unhappy news. Nonetheless, I apologize for the method of delivery.
Rob, 33, is survived by his wife Mel, and three children.
