PAROFES

Postby Marcsoltan » Sun May 11, 2014 4:27 pm

Dear friends,
The dreaded time has arrived. Paulo Schmidt AKA PAROFES has passed away. Knowing that the end was near, in February of this year, he asked me to write an article about him to post after he is gone. I am honored that he asked me and I will do so very soon. I know that many of you had special feelings for PAROFES, and he was thankful to have so many great friends here on Summit Post. We are grateful to have known him and we will miss him tremendously.
Rest in peace my dear friend, and thank you, Summit Post, for your expressions of love and support.
Marc Soltan

Even though I knew it was coming it still hurts to know that he is not ever going to post again, to make us laugh and to share his wonderful pictures. At least he isn't in pain anymore.

Thank you Marc for letting us know.

Thanks for letting us know Marc

Now Paulo is at peace my thoughts and best wishes are with Lilliana and his family and close friends. He is already missed by those who didn't know him well - these are very hard times for them.

RIP Paulo - I enjoyed knowing you, even though we never met

Paulo was a colorful character of SummitPost who offered me help with auto shutters and photoshop tweaking. He is a passionate poster who presented a lot of fun/unique photos to this site.

Here are some photos I admired of his and a few that represent him and his artistic side:

And we have lift off

Out in the field taking photos

I miss the mountains sooooooo much!

Work less, live more!

I miss those days...

Bosses ridge - Mont Blanc

Feel its power!

Point 5660m and Flamingoes

If I go, please remember me by this photo!

Thank you Paulo for all that you have shared with us and remind us not to give up the fight! Not even until the end.

Hi, this is Lili writing..

Parofes left me some 'last wishes' and this is one of them.
He want me to tell you guys that you all are great and sometimes more than just friends.
All your help and support made him feel so much better. He just loved talking to you and writting here.

And me.. well, thank you for all the wonderful messages and all that you did for him.

With all my love,

Lilianne Schmidt
