Attention RJ Fans!

I'm afraid I have to be the bringer of some very bad news and I hope you'll all understand the weight of the situation.

I talked to Robnkarla for the first time in weeks tonight, on MSN. He told me that his abscence is due to his family and the fact hat his dear wife is sick and not doing well at all. Rob is swamped in work as he's trying to maintain the stability of the family and also taking care of his wife at the same time. Things are not looking good, and I asked him what to do, if I could help in any way. He wanted me to inform you about the situation... so, here we are. I feel terrible, being on the other side of the globe and not being able to support my friend "in real life", other than via the PC screen. But, if anything, I can at least inform his mod community about the situation, and that you all might have to realise that RJ is probably going to be put on halt/hold for what could be a long time. This is not his words though, but I would assume that his thoughts are on all things that matter now, which a mod doesn't really.

I've been absent too, last spring, after problems in my family. Life, family and love always comes first, and I hope you will all join in here and wish Rob ALL the luck he/they can get. My thoughts are with him and his wife Karla.

Getting somewhat back on topic, I just spoke to rob for like five minutes...his wife's not doing too well, and though she isn't doing awful either, it's gonna be eating up a lot of his time. so, idk when he'll be back regularly...but he hasn't forgotten us.

Oh yeah, and pinned it for you :)

Nice to know his is still alive. :) But, hopefully he makes it through all he is going through unscathed as possible...

Im sorry to hear that things are not well, Im not sure what else can be said other than I hope things start to look up. The mod can wait, tending to your family is whats most important, especially when every second is precious.

The mod can stop, be canceled, cease to exists, be wiped out of the face of the earth... It's not important now :rolleyes:

All the best wishes from Norway! I'd pray for your wife, but I'm not religious..

Good luck to you, Rob.
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

The mod is not important when one looks at their own family. It's true.
