The 'Remembering Bob' Site

I just wanted to say thank you for being there in a time of need.

I’ve been a WooThemes Developer subscriber for some time, but this week I truly appreciated the power and convenience of your service. One of my close friends passed away without warning earlier this week. Using the Coffee Break theme, I was able to rapidly build and deploy a memorial site with just a few hours of work using the theme and its design presets.

Thank you for being Woo…and a big thanks to Magnus for having created this theme and having it at my disposal during some difficult times!!!
