Not much of an entry today I’m afraid, as I am very saddened to hear of the totally unexpected death of my penfriend’s husband. I have known Ute since the age of 15, and last year we spent almost a week with her and Peter in Menden, and the years rolled back, we remained the good friends we have always been. Peter was her university friend so I have known him almost as long. I am so shocked and can think of little else. The funeral took place today: RIP Peter, dear friend.
