    Dear Peter and other family. I want to send you my sincere condolences. I was shocked to read that Jurgen passed away. I have very good memories of my time growing up with Jurgen in Holland. We did Some years in school together, and one day we promised each other to double class. I looked forward to see Jurgen after the hollidays, but than I found out I had to do it in my own, because the family brouwer moved to new Glasgow. I saw Jurgen only a few times more back in Holland, but I was always wondering, how he was doing. I regret that we didnt plan a reunion sooner. I wish all family and friends of Jurgen the strength to give this loss a place in your hearts.
