News from RoboPi's Sister
Sad news and thanks for letting us know. He was a lovely old boy, an enthusiastic robotier, and kept his enthusiasm for life to the end. Its comforting to hear his end was peaceful. I remember the pictures he shared of his cottage in the woods and his prowess in the more esoteric areas of AI in robotics. He will be missed. Adieu robo-pi.
Thank you, all, so much for your thoughts about my brother. He was a wonderfully unique and intelligent person, as well as a gentle and kind human being. It helps to know he had some friends of kindred spirits, though I will grieve for him forever. I know it gets better with time, but it doesn't feel like that right now.
Rest in Peace Brother!
I have no words
You've lost a dear brother, and we've all lost a dear friend
I valued and respected him. He always had a kind word, and words of encouragement, and it made me feel good to talk with him
My sympathies to you and your family on your loss. He will be missed here, as I am sure he is missed in your hearts.

Hello everyone. I appreciate all of your responses. Today, I heard something on the NPR show, To the Best of Our Knowledge, about artificial intelligence. I believe my brother, James, would have been very interested in it as he has talked about on this forum, according to what he has told me. I imagine some of you have heard this program, which was several conversations about loneliness. I find it very interesting that I heard the program without knowing what it would be about, just as I am missing my brother and experiencing some loneliness in missing him.
Although I never had the honor of interacing with robo-pi directly, I have read through (most of) his posts and interactions with other members of the forum. I can tell he was loved and respected by most members of the forum.
Let me add my sincere condolences to your loss and the loss of a good friend to many forum members. May he rest in peace!
It is devastating losing a family member and you never get over it. It leaves an empty feeling when you think about them. All you can do is try and fill your life with things that interest you as indeed James did. And like James you need to seek out others that might share one or more of your interests. It really is about the journey. We set up little challenges be they physical or mental to enjoy.
He always spoke well of you.

I wish you well for the rest of your life so take care of yourself and remember James lived his life with enthusiasm and I am sure would want you to do the same.
I just learned of this today the forum won't be the same .rest in peace robo pi.my best wishes to his family.he will be missed.
I'm deeply sorry for the loss his family has experienced. It was a shock to me today as I've been off of the forum for about a month due to conflicting pastimes. I really had hoped and prayed that the outcome would be favorable for him, and this was the first thread I checked out.
May you rest in peace, Jim. We will miss you.
