I love you.


Today, around 12:30 PM (7:30 PM Swiss time), my aunt Madeleine passed away.

She left peacefully while I was at home in the kitchen sorting this years freshly baked and assembled Christmas cookies into 25 individual bags and Bear was wrapping gifts close-by.

The tradition of baking cookies for all family members I took over from her and each Christmas for the past several years I’d make Brunsli (after grandmothers recipe) and Cinnamon Stars and other typical Swiss cookies and I usually make like 20 bags of them and hand them out on Xmas day. This tradition is in memory of her and how I adored getting each Christmas a plate with her cookies up in the mountains in Wengen at our family chalet Sunnehalde (which literally means “sunny heap”). I want to continue with this tradition, it’s like a little thank you what you’ve all done for me in my childhood, thanks for being around and being my family and having given me some nice memories.

I have written in the past about her, such as in Just calling to say hello…, Bad news. and in Sad… but proud..

Right now I have nothing else left to say to her but “I love you” and that I wish her the very best on her future journey.
