Hello my racing friends,

Today at 17:31 local time it was 500 hours ago that my wife "Liselot" died.
She was the love of my life and I miss her like hell.

I tell you this because I want to thank you for your condolences and kind words over the past weeks.

I hope to re find my joy in GPL soon
but at the moment I miss the encouragement and coaching from my biggest fan.

Special thanks to Robert (Fleurke) for passing my sad message to you.

Thank you all, hope to see you soon.
Greetings Pedro van den Berg

Nothing I could say will alleviate one iota of your pain, but my thoughts are with you.  Perhaps consider the Cajun view, rather than mourn that a person  has passed they rejoice that the person lived.

I'm really sorry to hear this Pedro. I realise that it feels like you're in a very dark place right now. But I hope some time in the future you can come back towards the light and spend time with your friends on the track again where you belong. We're all here for you right now, and we'll be here for you when you want to race again.

Sincere condolences Pedro.

Having gone through the same thing myself about 18 months ago I know time can be a great healer. Take as long as you need.

Only you will know when the time is right.

Pedro, I’m so sorry for your tremendous loss.  My deepest condolences for you and your family. I hope you find strength to help you pull through this difficult time. And to borrow from Pete Gaimari’s signature, we hope to see you back here sliding and smiling again soon.

Deepest sympathies to you, Pedro, and your family with the passing of your wife.
I can share in your loss, as it's been 16 year now since the loss of my wife.
Our thoughts & prayers are with you, my friend.
