Returning to the group after a couple of days off, I read this
shocking and rather unexpected news.

If there would be one constant factor in life, it would be Jens-Peer's
presence here. I'll miss his typical reply template:

"... and <ingenious solution> doesn't work ??"

My condoleances and thoughts go to his family and friends.
