In our project work (and we did quite a number of projects…) I always enjoyed talking to Martin in coffee breaks and over lunch. Not only because we were friends and shared private matters, but also because Martin was the person to bring us back down to earth – away from the project language and technical work issues. He made us see the people who we were working for and was very often the critical voice reminding us of our responsibility. It was not all serious talk, though, we also enjoyed light dinner talks, talking about trips we had been on, people we had met, books we came across and funny episodes we had encountered.
So all in all, I am really going to miss a good friend, and will keep all the lovely memories in my heart.
Thank you for the lovely family picture which shows Martin with his loved-ones being cared for and being surrounded by love and warmth.
