To Pinkney: My husband and I met you during a business party in the Netherlands. In our view, you stood out as a true American, the way both my husband and I love them. May you rest in peace.

Dear PC

Your endless energy and your professionalism was an inspiration to all. It was a privilege working with you. Sorry for the difficulties that my shortcomings undoubtedly caused you and sorry for not having made the effort to patch up while you were still with us.
Thanks mate for all the things you taught me, for the help you were always willing to provide and for the great times we enjoyed together. You will always be remembered Un abbraccio,

To follow on from Wil's words, here is someone from England who was fortunate enough to have met PC (as I knew him). I worked together with PC in Germany on quite a few occasions, from around 1993. He was always a professional and thoughtful work colleague, and he became s good friend. I visited him in Germany and Holland, and he came to visit us here in Bath. He was lively company, with a twinkle in his eye, and a good listening ear - and a thoroughly well-honed sense of humour. He will be much missed.
