First the glad tidings.
It was a wonderful surprise to find a large white envelope lying poste restante for the Folk Club at House Müllestumpe. It had a beautiful Swiss postage stamp with a robin on it (any philatelists amongst you may apply!) and wished us all at the folk club a peaceful Advent season and a successful New Year.
She bid us farewell in November and said that she was undertaking a four week tour of Africa in December and would not be attending the December folk club, but would see us again in the new year. Unfortunately Verena suffered a brain haemorrage whilst in Africa and died the following day in hospital there.
Our thoughts and sincere sympathy go out to her family and friends, of which there were many, and we are deeply saddened at the loss of such a wonderful human being with such a great love of music.
