Hi Rebecca,

Cees wrote me (and others, I presume) an email on the 4th of July (which is,
as you probably know, in our country a normal day :-)) under the subject
"pech" (= "hard luck"), in which he announced that he had a tumor in his
right lung, as a result of dissemination of another cancer he alreay was
treated for. The doctors told him it was terminal, with an expectation of
weeks or hopefully, months.

He died July 30.

We used to play together frequently, I used to be a member of the Revival
Jass Band as well, and we were both invited to join ad hoc bands


Best regards,

Dick Sleeman
