Eija-Riitta Eklöf Berliner-Mauer's* moving tribute to her...uh, 'late' husband:
"We have been together now for many years, spiritually if not physically. Like every married couple, we have our ups and downs. We even made it through the terrible disaster of November 9, 1989, when my husband was subjected to frenzied attacks by a mob.
But we are still as much in love as the day we first met. We may not have a conventional marriage, but neither of us cares much for conventions. Ours is a story of two beings in love, our souls entwined for all eternity."
Yesterday, I heard a fascinating interview (g) with Eklöf Berliner-Mauer on my public radio station. Strongly recommended!
* Apparently the Swedes had no problem with the name change.
