‘This morning during my meditation I knew. It was just after 6, but I felt it was about to happen. It was as if something ripped open my heart, and everything came out. Tears, screams, shouts. I might have scared some people around me but I couldn’t contain it.  And then when I came back to the hotel Antoinette told me.’

‘Right now I am surrounded by a whole bunch of love and support. It is painful, it is surreal, it is heart breaking. Scary and sad. But, I also know that Angele will be in a better place soon. It is the last thing she told me: “I will be fine”. And she will be. And so will I, and the children. But first we will have to pass through a lot of grief and pain which I will approach with as much positivity as humanly possible.’

‘I am still in Vienna and will be flying back tomorrow morning. When I am back I will be determining what will be happening when and where, and will share more on that once I know.’

Angele was well known locally for motivating those battling the same disease as she was, bringing them light and joy during their ordeal.

Rest in Peace Angele. Condolences to all of her loved ones.
