Peter Jalowy (age 30 b. 18 June 1982) died on the night of 29/30 April 2013. He is missed by his life partner Marco, his mother, his sisters and his many friends. Peter's Funeral was on May 10 in Thüringen, where he grew up, with his immediate family. There is a memorial event next Saturday in Volkspark Friedrichshain (facebook here).
Peter was handsome, he was intelligent - he always read my discarded New Scientists - and he was one of my best friends. He worked briefly for Discodamaged. About eight weeks ago was the last time I saw him with Marco and he was in the best mood I had ever seen. But it was a false dawn.
Peter died of drink and such like. He had one too many that night. He was always a troubled man - all his life. He did not mean to die.
There are other young men like Peter. Perhaps his death could do some good if they were helped. Discodamaged and friends will be giving to a charity that does that. Search for suchtberatung berlin or just go to http://www.drogen-info-berlin.de/.
Peter is resting in peace.
Jack, my doppelganger, also knew Peter and mourns him,
