A terrible earthquake hit my country last saturday, killing hundreds in seconds. Before, I would have said: at least their death was quick. But now I think like Pieter: the best way to die is when you have enough time to say goodbye, even if that means painful cancer.

Goodbye Pieter, go happy knowing that you've put in your kids much more than DNA, they're set for an awesome journey!
