My dear friend Hans Holzer died on Sunday April 26th peacefully at home in Manhattan. We were good friends for nearly thirty five years. I cherish the last visits we had together and will miss his physical presence in my life enormously but know he is with me in spirit. My condolences go to his loving family.
