And thus he left us... may our hearts escort his soul to better dwellings

Newer Older

Today I received a mail from Horst's wife telling me of his passing. I couldn't believe it, I was in shock and I had (and as I write I have again) chills running through my body.
He was one of my oldest friends on flickr, almost four years. He was fun and inspiring, always supportive and a great friend. He shared so much with us and he will be sorely missed.
I admired him and he was a darling to me. A very dear person.

He had been through so much in the past weeks and still he thought of us, and asked his wife to let his friends on flickr know about it, if the worst was to happen. It just goes to show what a caring and thoughtful person he was.
I'm so sad and I can't put into words what a great loss it is.

My heart goes with his family in these sad times.
