RIP Howard Gobioff

I just received news that Howard died of Lymphoma. I confirmed with Wandi, so this isn't just rumour. Apparently he'd been in the hospital for the last month and didn't tell anyone about it.

I had been meaning to visit him up in NYC since he's been back from Japan. He was a fantastically good friend back in the goth club days here in Pittsburgh from '97-'99, and then he was a better friend when we both moved out to the Bay Area around the same time. I lost close touch with him when he moved to Japan, because of the time zone differences, and well... just haven't managed to get back in touch with him since.

I have missed him, and will miss him more now.

Howard was so sweet. While we were never tremendously close with each other, he and I got to know each other in IRC. He was the first person I knew with a digital camera. I remember him taking pictures of me at a party and Laga and then sending them to me later. What a great person he was...

I'm just really saddend to hear this.
