Peter’s Passing

Our sad news is, that Peter died last Saturday, namely on the 12/12/2020. He is to be cremated on Monday, 21st of December, which is our 64th wedding anniversary!

On Saturday, 19th of December, we’re going to have a Funeral Service. In due time I may perhaps be able to publish a video from that Funeral Service. –

Peter’s cancer of the bone progressed rather quickly. He received right to the end good medical care at home surrounded by loved ones.

The 4th and 5th of December were the last days when Peter could still participate a bit in our lives and so was then enjoying a few things that he was still able to do. But then he got very much worse from day to day. For a while we thought he might still last up to Christmas. But eventually we realised he would not be able to make this.

We are all very sad about his passing. 😦

  1. Dear Uta, I am so sorry to read this sad news. I really have come to look on you and Peter ‘Berlioz’ as my good friends, and although I suppose this was not unexpected, it must still be a very hard blow for all of you. My very deepest sympathy. God bless you.

  2. Dear Uta,
    I am sitting here crying.
    I’m so VERY sorry to hear this VERY sad news of Peter’s passing.
    My dad died of bone cancer at age 82. So I know a little of what Peter, and you, have gone through.
    Please know that I care. I so appreciate the kindness and the wonderful words you and Peter shared with me here on WordPress.
    Is there anything we can do to help?
    Love and (((HUGS))),

  8. Oh my, Uta. I am so very sorry. There is no good time to part from the love of a lifetime. He was such a wonderful companion and partner through thick and thin. I know you’re heart is done in. I’m glad Peter was able to pass from home, under your watchful and loving care. May you be surrounded by your loved ones as you work through this loss.

  10. Uta…just realised that Peter had passed…my condolences to yourself and family and my regret at not getting to know Peter sooner…he was a learned and astute person…I enjoyed his autobiography he posted on his blog…we are all the less for the passing of another wise soul…

  11. Liebe Uta,

    es tut mir so leid, zu hören, dass Peter gestorben ist! Mein herzliches Beileid!

    Es ist gut, zu wissen, dass Ihr als Familie füreinander da seid!
    Entschuldige, dass ich in Deutsch schreibe, aber mein Englisch ist leider nicht gut genug.

    Ich sende Dir herzliche Grüße aus Peters Kreuzberg!

    Katja
