  1. I had the pleasure of doing Friederike’s hair for the time she lived at the towers. We had many fine visits and it was such a pleasure hearing about her homeland and family. She was a very interesting person.

  2. I met Alan @ my first and only democratic caucus. Many years later I met Frederike when she was trading her Madza for another one and recognized the name. We lunched infrequently due to my business, yet she loyally returned a few years later to buy another car from me. She entertained me in her home and showed me lovely art work and pix of her true love. I have thought of her often since moving from Pueblo and know that her dear family will be sent love and light from above by the 2 of them
