Dear Dr. Claus & Mama Angelika,There's no word that can express how sorry we are to hear about the death of our beloved Course Manager Mzee Peter May! . We were very stunned to hear this news and still can't believe that it really happened. We always accept the love we think we deserve, But Peter's love to us was indeed fatherly and his death leaves a huge gap between us and IIJB. May His Soul Rest in Eternal Peace!

This is Patrick Rukwaro from Kenya who you trained at IIJB. Very excited to find you and send you friend request. I cherish the training you and IIJB gave me, and in turn, I am now a journalism trainer here in Nairobi. Many greetings to every trainer of IIJB. So sad to hear about the best photojournalism trainer Peter May. May he rest in peace.

Oh no. That's so sad. RIP Peter May
