Paty Oldenburg’s funeral was held on Monday in Hamburg. Mike attended on behalf of the Dive Club and Peter organised some flowers.
Mike sent the following:
Really nice ceremony in Hamburg for Pati Oldenburg. I did not understand the 12 minute speech in German by the Pastor but afterwards there was a slide show put together by Jenni with beautiful photographs illustrating her life. All this in a chapel in a huge cemetery. This was more like a park with roads winding through the trees and in between lawns where the graves are secreted. There is an Oldenburg family plot where members have been interred since 1936 and the urn was buried there. Afterwards 18 of us adjourned to a French café and had cakes and family members got re-acquainted. Finally back to Lubeck where we were 7 for dinner at Uwe’s house. Mike.
Our thoughts remain with Uwe, Jan and Jenni.
