Our much loved and appreciated Peter (banker07) has passed away.

Love Sempsfreunde,

We give you, unfortunately the sad news to hear that the Peter (banker07) has died.

We have lost a great friend Peter.
Work on the Sempervivum list, we will continue in its meaning.

In deep mourning

Peter was like a treasure to us. We sought from him information and guidance for something we all loved. His enthusiasm was the bonus that he gave us and he will be much missed for the giving man that he was.

How true your words are Bev. Thank you for the post, and all the others that have posted how they feel about our Peter.
We have lost a treasure, but a treasure that has left behind a part of himself.

Trixi, from Peter's team, is going to send us a write up on Peter's life. As soon as I receive it I will post it here in this thread.

Hi Veronica. Thank you so much for all you have been doing on the Sempervivum-Liste site. Peter had talked so much about the great team that worked together. He loved and appreciated each of you.
We would love to continue working with your team in verifying and promoting sempervivum. If there is anything we can do to help your team please let us know. Your site is very important to us. I too use it daily.
