    Per Volquartz, Rest in Peace

    Just got the very sad news from Matt Blais that Per passed away this morning. We are all devastated. Such a fantastic teacher and sweet man, so much talent. He will leave quite a legacy. We are in shock.

    Rest in Peace, Per.

    I regret never meeting you in person, but you have always been generous to me, both directly and indirectly, in many ways.

    My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Per was a very kind man. I will miss him.

    In the few times I worked with him, I learned so much. I am still working on applying all that he taught me.

    I already miss him.

    He freely gave much more than he ever got.

    Such terrible news. I treasure the brief time I spent with him this past year. What a loss to our community.....he was so encouraging, positive and always in good humor .

    Very sad news. I was fortunate to meet him last year in the 5 Church Work Shop in NM where he enjoyed speaking a little Danish.
    RIP Per.

    Matt and I went to see Per at the hospital on Thursday last week. He was his usual self. I know how morphine can make one feel like nothing is wrong. We had a great visit full of laughter and for this I am thankful. Per was a dear friend, mentor and wonderful artist and teacher. He was a great inspiration to me. We spent a day together with me teaching him carbon transfer that I will never forget. My best to his family. They will be in my prayers.
