    RIP Peter - I didn't know you in real life - but I've certainly benefited from your dedication to our life.

    R.I.P. Peter. I just recently received several tins of one of your blends, the first time with any of them for me. I will smoke the first bowl ever of your blend in your honor.

    Very sad to hear this. I never did have the pleasure of meeting the man but with the help of google translate we did exchange a few emails. And I love his tobaccos. I'll be smoking a favorite of mine in his honor tonight, a mixture of Curly Special and Curly Block.

    The clouds of Heaven just got a bit smokier.

    Thank you, Huub, for posting this. Otherwise I would have posted about it now that the news is in the public domain via newspaper articles.

    I was at Peter Heinrichs' shop yesterday afternoon. You wouldn't have noticed from the way the shop was working at that time and the way staff treated customers, but the news of Peter Heinrichs' passing made the rounds among customers.

    Sadly, the news did not come totally unexpected. One of the friends I meet at the shop once a month had been on a cruising trip on the River Rhine in the summer, organized by Peter Heinrichs for customers and friends. On the occasion, Peter Heinrichs already looked very ill and, from what I heard, the speech he held must have sounded like a farewell.

    I can't count myself among his close friends, but for more than a decade I have enjoyed his hospitality and the friendliness he offered to everybody who came into his shop, no matter if they bought a cheap basket pipe or a top notch handmade costing a hundred times as much.
