In the beginning of my internet time in 1998 I happened to meet Kaete by searching the ICQ-Network (instant messenger)
Kaete told me, she had been a stewardess in her active time,
and in retirement she moved from Germany to the USA, because she loved this country.
I never met her personally, but during the years we became confidents and kept in steady contact.
In early 2002 Kaete told me about her cardiopathy and that it overcame.
But shortly after this news she disappeared from internet and did not respond to any of my messages.
In may 2002 I received an email from one of her collegues, who found my address on her office computer.
He told me that Kaete passed away.
