    OK? Have you tried to relight the pilot light, that would be where I start first, and if the pilot won't relight chances are your thermocouple has bit the dust, it is the little probe next to the pilot that stays in the flame and generates a milli-volt charge to hold the gas valve open, for the pilot circuit on the gas valve.

    They are only about 10 bucks at a hardware store, and are pretty easy to install even for a beginner.
