>     Dear IRP'ers
>     Apologies for the (later) cross-posting and the sombre content.
>     Some of you will already know that a year ago Heike Jensen passed
>     away. Heike was a stalwart of Giganet, the Gender DC and other
>     civil society work at the IGF, and the GigaNET community in the
>     crucial early years. Her involvement and contribution goes back to
>     the WSIS e.g. Heike contributed to the Joergensen edited volume
>     (2006) on Human Rights in the Global Information Society,
>     reporting for Freedom House and others and being part of IGF
>     meetings through the Gender DC and Giganet symposia.
>     The last time Heike was at the IGF was Sharm el Sheikh I think,
>     though she may also have been in Nairobi. In recent years she
>     devoted herself to other work from her (new) homebase in Munich
>     where she was very happy after adjusting from the move there from
>     Berlin.
>     Heike was a wonderful person, a great researcher and advocate as
>     her partner below reminds us. I, for one, have missed having her
>     take part in recent years but I will miss her for the years to
>     come at this anniversary.
>     Just thought some of you would like to know of her passing if you
>     did not already.

>     Dr.phil. Heike Jensen
>     On the first anniversary of her death on February 3, 2014
>     Heike was a dedicated feminist and from the bottom of her heart a
>     humanitarian.
>     Both her scholarship and her work for NGOs aimed at making the
>     world a more just place for every human being.
>     The pain and grief caused by the loss of a beloved person is only
>     bearable when we experience how much she meant to those whose
>     lives she touched. Because the only thing that matters in life are
>     the traces of love that a person leaves behind.
>     One year ago, after her brave fight against cancer, Heike passed away.
>     She contitnues to live in our hearts.
