Dear friends and relatives,

My dear wife Brigitta has left us. She bore her illness with dignity until the end and peacefully fell asleep

at the end.

I cannot describe her personality in words, but I can say that I was blessed to have been married to her for almost 47 years. The mutual encouragement to stake out new horizons while exercising freedom in togetherness is something I will have to continue on my own for the rest of my life.

Like many others, I will miss her.

I will publish condolences in excerpts on this website, as far as I have your consent.

 The funeral will take place on Friday, April 28, 2023, at 11 a.m. in the Friedhofskapelle Eddigehausen.
