I'm Guido Alfani (Email: alpha at flashnet.it) and I'm the italian translator
of the program AMIGAWORLD (see on AMINET: AmigaWorld520.lha  misc/edu
1.5M+World Countries Database) by Wolfgang Lug.

I'm very sorry to write this message but it's necessary to inform Amiga
community about these sad news.

Wolfgang Lug isn't with us anymore.

He was the author of the program I've being collaborating for 5 years, together
Bo Arnholm (Email:arnis at tripnet.se -URL:http://www.tripnet.se/home/arnis/),
Bjarne Bjørnsen (Email: bjbjoern at online.no), Ruud Hoekzema (EMail:
rhoek at xs4all.nl - URL: http://www.xs4all.nl/~rhoek/), Mika Leinonen (EMail:
Mika.Leinonen at oulu.fi - URL: http://stekt.oulu.fi/~mikal/), David Gaussinel,
Yves Salingue and Olivier Bogros.

We have just received this unexpected comunication from a Wolfgang's friend,
that I'm reporting here:


*********************Forwarded message *********************

Dear Bo Arnholm,

my Name is Stefan Thissen and I am a friend of Wolfgang Lug. I think, 
that till now no-one had inform you of what had happen about 6 weeks 
ago, so I will do, although it's not easy for me to put into words. 

On August 8th Wolfgang had lost his life. He fell from the 
roof of a tower building in Kassel; police says that he committed 
suicide. 

For us this act is hardly to understand, because we had never 
become aware of  that committing suicide is a possible way Wolfgang 
to go. But after talking with his older brother, we now know that 
Wolfgang had suffered from what is called endogeneous depressions, a 
genetic illness causing extreme changes of mood.  It seems that in 
his last days Wolfgang was in a very depressive state of mind, which 
he couldn't control any more. 

Although many questions aren't answered and never will be, I think 
you should know what had happen. And may be you can inform the other 
translators of AmigaWorld about this tragic event.

Sincerely,

Yours Stefan Thissen 

****************** End of forwarded message ********************



At the request of how we could honour Wolfgang's memory, Stefan Thissen
answered that could write a message to the mother, Ursula Lug.....
I wish that all Amiga users will follow our example to remember a great
boy prematurely disappeared.


>I think, to honour Wolfgang you and the translators could send a
>condolatory card to Wolfgang's mother.
>Her address is: Ursula Lug, Am Rinzler 4, D-78465 Konstanz.
>Or you could write an obituary on the AmigaWorld-Homepage.
>Best wishes,2
