Sometimes when I first awake I think that you´re still here
and for a fleeting moment the clouds all disappear.
For you brought endless sunshine – until you went away
and now I miss you sadly each minute of the day.
You would not like to see me sad so what I try to do
is live a bright and happy life in memory of you.
The fact that you´re no longer here will always cause me pain
but you´re forever in my heart until we meet again.
I´ll Be Missing you – by Faith Evans and Sean Combs

When I think of you Angelika, the first image that comes to my mind is your radiant smile and sparkling eyes. I have always admired your insatiable passion for life, your drive, your creativity and your striking talent. You have been there for me for so many years, showing me compassion, empathy and love, while being as direct and honest as only you can be! You have made me laugh so much…
You have been so incredibly strong, brave and positive throughout your illness, your attitude towards life is an example to us all. I will miss you very much but will keep you in my heart.
I pass on my condolences to your family, you have been an amazing, supportive and loving wife and mum, so I know no words will be able to comfort them but they are in our thoughts in this very difficult and painful time.
Love always. Sandrine
I was honoured to exhibit with her and to see her on a creative spree. The time we spent together were always fun, and I will always remember our memories together.
Last time I saw Angelika when we had a wonderful walk in Richmond Park and Isabella Plantation with her dog Hendrix, talking about life, art, projects, kids.
She was taking photographs of her favorite subject – water .
We finished our walk barefoot on the green, cold grass – as per Angelika’s suggestion – an amazing experience.
She was there when I needed her- caring and supportive.
Its hard to accept not to hug her anymore.
Certain people touch our lives in really happy ways. They’re helpful and supportive, they are the first with words of praise, they are always there for you. They are funny, kind and thoughtful . They are known as special friends. Angelika you are my special friend, I will miss your wonderful laughter, radiant smile and friendship. I have so many happy memories- years of walking in weather even the dogs wouldn’t countenance, lots of laughter and discussions followed by a slice of cake. Always a treat for every dog in your pocket. Your wonderful art which expressed your joy and zest for life, grounded in the beauty of nature.
Your positivity and courage inspired me.
Love you lots my darling.
Angelika will be in our hearts forever and brought such warmth, kindness, fun and vitality to everything. She brought such delight during quiet times at our art exhibitions by appearing with a big smile and a glass of Prosecco! Miss you Angelika and thank you for your your friendship and love.

Angelika possessed a beautiful spirit and she was always thoughtful and caring of others. She was a joy to be around and will be sorely missed by so many that have known such a special person.

Angelika – your generosity and vibrancy were boundless. The space you leave empty is huge.
A very dear friend, you showed me life through a different lens and, despite your own illness, never stopped offering loving support. Your bravery and determined positivity were inspiring – and so typical.
The girls and I truly miss you.
Your smile lit up the room,
Your energy was boundless,
Your talent adorns the walls of our home,
You gave us a beautiful grandchild,
You fought like a tigress,
You left us far too early.
We will miss you, Angelika.
Schwiegerpapa and Marylou
Farewell my beautiful friend … it was a pleasure and honour to have known you and have had you in my life. We shared so many fun, beautiful and memorable moments and I will never forget you… you have left us far too early and it will be a while before that sinks in .. you’ll always be in my thoughts till we meet again… rest in peace my darling xxx
Few persons give you a lasting impression if you do not meet them on a regular basis. We met Angelika literally less than five times. Yet everybody in our part of the family immediately related the not so rare first name -when mentioned- to our cousin/aunt on the island. She conveyed empathy, positivity and commitment in every interaction. We are so sorry no opportunities are given to us any more to relive these heartwarming experience.

Angelika was in many ways a person of contrasts. Strong minded, determined, stubborn even and never shy of standing by her opinions or taking up a challenge. She too, though, held people in the centre and was warm and engaging with others. Quick to laugh, Angelika had the ability to lift the mood of the moment with her vitality and sense of fun. Her creativity was vast, and she always could find a unique perspective on something. Angelika was a loyal friend and was deeply committed to her family. Her devotion to her daughter was absolute and Laura is a testament to her. I am sad that her nephew will grow up without Angelika in his life, but I hope that some of what I have taken from her will be passed on. Ultimately, she faced her illness with dignity and determination. Angelika was deeply loved, will be much missed but held in our hearts forever.

How will we remember Angelika?
We have always admired her artistic skills – her amazing ability to turn a simple photo into a work of art – and her passion for her chosen profession.
Angelika held strong views and expressed them forcefully, but above all, she always wanted to help. Already being critically ill and in hospital, she spent hours trying to convince us not to have the Covid vaccination, as she strongly believed it would have long-term side effects.
The last year of her life was scarred by an illness as difficult as may be conceived. Throughout she remained optimistic, happy, confident that she would recover. Hardy told us that this spirit stood by her to the end.
We first met the achievement of which Angelika was most and justifiably proud 21 years ago. We remember her about 6 months old, gurgling on her back on the beach at Bournemouth while Angelika addressed her Spatzl (little sparrow). Happily, she lived to know that Laura secured a first-class honours degree from the University of Newcastle.
Angelika died too soon, but her vivaciousness, her courage and her willingness to to stand up for her beliefs and not to compromise will always be with us.

What remains are the memories.
Unforgettable in our hearts!
Michaela, Manfred, Alina & Bennet
I first saw you, aged twenty something at a lake in Austria on a summer day. You were at the “beach” with a girlfriend, laughing, sunbathing and drinking cold white wine in the hot sun. It was a glorious place and you were so happy and full of life and I have never forgotten it.
And Angelika what a lot you achieved. A fulfilling creative life filled with friends, a lovely home, beautiful art but above all your wonderful family. Your adored and adoring husband and daughter. The centre of your world.
This is such a sad time but Angelika I shall choose to remember you as you were that summer day twenty some years ago. Young, beautiful and exuding an unbounded excitement for life.
With love and deepest sympathy to Hardy and Laura.
and there are always traces of your life,
thoughts, images and moments.
They will remind us of you,
make us happy and sad
and never let you forget
Jolanda and Christian
