Wim van Nierop passed away on May 27th. Wim was an honorary member of the KVBC for his merits as a board member and member of the inspection committee and as chairman of the publication committee. He was the inspirer of some beautiful books published by the KVBC. In the upcoming Arbor Vitae there is an extensive In Memoriam. We will miss Wim and wish his family lots of strength in this sad time.
