    Per Volquartz was a tremendously positive force in this community. I never got to attend one of his workshops, but his knowledge, enthusiasm, an generosity were always apparent, and we could all learn by his example.

    My condolences to his family and friends.

    I was fortunate enough to attend a number of Per's workshops, and even did a weekend darkroom session with him. I've never met anyone so generous with their time, so quick to encourage and praise, and all with a gentle enthusiasm and timely wit.

    Per will be missed by the many people whose lives he touched, both with his art and his inspiration. Good-bye, friend and mentor.

    It sounds as though his death was a shock. I communicated with Per a few times and he seemed very generous with his knowledge and experience.

    Sad news indeed. Condolences to his family and friends.

    Given his direct and indirect contributions here, would it not be appropriate to have this thread in the "In Memoriam" thread?

    I cherish the times I had with Per in Zion, Joshua Tree and here in Vegas. This is sad news indeed. What a loss.
