Our friend, partner and BD member Heinz «HeiWid» Widmer
(4th of April 1967 – 1st of June 2012)
passed away – suffering from cancer.
A great loss of a great personality. In his own words a «Star on 45».
It still feels unreal and it is hard to find the words.
We keep him, his contagious laugh and humour in our hearts.
«A strange thing happened to me in my dream. I was rapt into the Seventh Heaven. There sat all the gods assembled. As a special dispensation I was granted the favor to have one wish. «Do you wish for youth,» said Mercury, «or for beauty, or power, or a long life; or do you wish for the most beautiful woman, or any other of the many fine things we have in our treasure trove? Choose, but only one thing!» For a moment I was at a loss. Then I addressed the gods in this wise: «Most honorable contemporaries, I choose one thing — that I may always have the laughs on my side.» Not one god made answer, but all began to laugh. From this I concluded that my wish had been granted and thought that the gods knew how to express themselves with good taste: for it would surely have been inappropriate to answer gravely: your wish has been granted.»
