I am forwarding you this message from Vint to announce the sad news regarding the family of Peter Dengate Thrush.
I am speechless. Some of us had the chance to meet his family, in Wellington, during our last meeting. I have been introduced to his wife, father and brother. It is just terrible news.


Sadly,
Roberto GAETANO

Many of you will know by now that Peter has suffered the most serious
tragedy. On Saturday in New Zealand (Friday evening in Marrakech), word came
that Peter's wife, Liz, Peter's father, brother and his brother's partner
were killed in a terrible car accident outside of Wellington, NZ. Our hearts
and prayers go out to Peter and his children who are now coping with this
awful loss. We put Peter on a plane this morning from Marrakech to Heathrow
where he will take a flight to Wellington via Auckland. Bart Boswinkel is
accompanying Peter to Heathrow and Keith Davidson, one of Peter's long-time
friends has diverted his trip to Marrakech to accompany Peter home. In the
early hours of Saturday morning, Diane Schroeder made air reservations for
Bart and Peter. Steve Huter, Bart and I accompanied Peter to the Marrakech
airport to make arrangements for his flight home. British Air staff
undertook to assure that all crew on the British Air and Air New Zealand
flights would be aware of the sorrowful nature of this journey and to take
special care of our friend and colleague.


In the days ahead, I am sure that Peter will appreciate reassuring messages
that we keep him in our thoughts and prayers.

with great sadness,

Vint
