Re: Yoshio Tanahashi has passed away

It's so sad to learn of Yoshio's passing; thank you Keiko for letting us know.
I'm sorry I never got to know him, I will miss his significant appearance next week in Amsterdam.
May his memory be a blessing.

My condolences to Keiko and extended family and everyone who loved him.

We are very pleased with the overwhelming response and very happy that we can offer it to everybody, who has signed for it. It is mostly due to the kindness of Meindert...
