Jean Jacques Peters 1941–2012

    Uncategorized | Yves Peters | January 23, 2012

    After battling a very aggressive cancer for over a year, yesterday evening my father chose to not let his illness have the last word. I feel very fortunate that we live in a civilized, humane country, where a person at the end of his life can decide to leave with dignity, without any more needless suffering.

    Somewhat related – I would like to apologise to the people coming to tonight’s BNO Romeo Delta evening CUT! in Rotterdam for not showing up. The organisation is looking into rescheduling my presentation at a later date, most probably the next IMG LAB evening on February 20th.

    8. Yves, my thoughts are with you. I lost my precious dad to cancer, a heartbreaking time. But I think of him every day, he is still part of my life and who I am today. Take care.

    10. I’m glad to hear he is no longer in pain, but I am sorry to hear he is gone. I’m sure he will have a remarkably beautiful gravestone.
