|Let the memory of Astrid be with us forever|
"Wish that you were still with us. Love you Grossmutti. There is much to say as I lay here in bed at 6:45 this morning thinking of you. I have treasured memories playing with you and listening to your entertaining stories when I was a child. I have memories all the way up to our last time together where at 86 and ill, unbeknownst to Mom or myself, you courageously met me in NY so we could go see Richard Dawkins speak. You got to meet him at his book signing and he took the time to talk with you and take pictures with us. It was only so late in your life that I realized how very similar we were and how many specific things we had in common despit distance in location and distance in time. I have a tattoo of your name close to my heart now. A famous German pop star bought it for me in Berlin, the town you gave birth to Mom. Both of my 1/2 Sisters currently live in Berlin. I will always regret the time lost between us, but I will hold onto the beautiful memories. I miss you so much more than I think you would know."
