Hallo!
Auch ich bin traurig das Roland so früh aus dem Leben getreten ist!

Ich kannte ihn nicht, nur einige seiner Videos
(und momentan habe ich wieder eines von ihm laufen)

Ich schliesse aber aus dem was ich über ihn lese und wie er in seinen Videos herüber kommt,
das er ein angenehmer, freudlicher Mensch war.

Jemand den ich gerne kennengelernt hätte!

Mein tiefes Mitgefühl seinen Hinterbliebenen,
gerade auch durch seine tollen Beiträge hier,
lebt ein Teil von ihm weiter,
Sven
according to Google translate:......

Hello!
Also I am sad that Roland has come so early from life!

I did not know him, just some of his videos
(and currently I have one more of him running)

I conclude from what I read about him and how he comes across in his videos,
that he was a pleasant, friendly person.

Someone I would like to meet!

My deepest sympathy to his survivors,
just through his great posts here,
Does a part of him live on,
Sven

I am saddened to read of Roland's passing. I as many others have mentioned have been helped by Roland's videos.
As jmaustpc said, he would in our country be considered a 'good bloke' .

He will surely be missed here and the many other facets of his life.

I never new you but rest in peace Roland, or where ever else you may be.

I am new to FreeCAD and am learning a great deal by watching Roland's wonderful videos; I am so sad to learn of his death at such a young age; my condolences to his friends and family. I hope the videos can be preserved so that they can continue to educate FreeCAD users in the future.

I am going to prepare the About screen to include a mention to Roland. I propose to add a text block in the credits, saying this version is dedicated to him, explain what he did, with a link to his videos... Does that seem good?
