On Thursday, 12 March, we received the news that our Hessenzebra, alias Peter Routhier, had lost his battle with cancer. Just a month ago, we sent our recovery wishes in this short video message:
We as TanZebras, who joined a health insurance scheme for the first time last year thanks to a fabulous fundraising campaign by MSV fans, understand the pain of losing important attachment figures particularly well. Many young people lose parents at far too young an age and are cushioned by the community of the extended family. As the TanZebras see themselves as part of the large MSV family, we too feel a strong need to express our condolences to Peter’s bereaved family, especially his wife Angie and his son Patrick.
