Another sad loss - Elena Morales †
This is Elena Morales, our friend and member from Spain, as we mostly knew here from our walks. She came along on mountain hikes, bike rides, also participated in '5 Pictures' and many other cultural events.
When in April a year ago, she was told she had cancer, she had so much will power to overcome this. Then unexpectedly before receiving a new type of treatment she closed her eyes for good right after her sister who lives in Stuttgart had arrived. That was January 31st.
Funeral services had been planned for March 9th at the Ostfriedhof, a confirmation about exact time and place could not be obtained. Ostfriedhof is near her home, where she took many walks to regain her strength and feed her body with oxygen, the one thing she could do herself to fight this battle. There were benches where she could rest.
As a personal friend, I surely can say that she will be missed immensely. The bucket list included things which we meant to do together.
Our wholehearted sympathy goes to her parents who live in Spain and her sister with family.
