Peter Lundin's Corner

On Thursday, March 22, 2001 Dr. Peter Lundin passed away. No one was more loved and admired in the renal community. I grew to know Peter very well through his work with kidney disease, through his contributions to this site, and when Maureen, his wife was alive, but very sick with cancer, and I too was on chemotherapy, through our support and cyber hand-holding with this dread disease. In corresponding with him, one always sensed that he was a genuine, caring person, the most compassionate person I ever met.

Peter was always willing to share his own triumphs and his own trials with any problem that dominated his life at the time. One always knew when reading Peter's comments that what he was saying to the reader was also being recited to himself.

There will never be another Peter Lundin, and these pages, these flickering binary lights of computer text, dim though they are compared to the man, himself, must serve future readers as a reflection of the person we once knew as Peter Lundin.

It is rare in our specialty to find one who is both a physician and an ESRD patient. Such a person lends invaluable insight to both his peers and his patients. Dr. Pete Lundin was a frequent participant on Dialysis Patients On-line, and some of his practical and useful contributions have been reproduced here with his permission. We have also linked to some of the best articles that Peter wrote for Renalife, a publication of AAKP, the American Association of Kidney Patients, a organization that Peter loved, and help found. In September, 2004, I was awarded the Peter Lundin Award from AAKP. To me, the highest tribule that one can pay to any physician is to honor him in the memory of someone whose attributes we all aspire to have. This is a great honor for me.

Special thanks to Dale Ester, himself a truly remarkable person, for his assistance. Please see Dale's tribule to Peter Lundin. Also, see Richard Berge'sTribute to Peter Lundin
