While working on my obituary for Charlie, I discovered that it lacked something. It’s impossible to write about Charlie without telling the story of my generation. It is very different from the stories of the 87 (1Generation…

Danielle (Les Belles Choses) by a friend 1990ies

Those were the words written on her last postcard. But it wasn’t here who wrote but we did.

She called me, that 4th of July 2007. Whether I could drive her to the hospital, she was not feeling well. A year ago, they had detected quite severe cervical cancer. She…
