    This is just great and I’m thankful that I was allowed to met her at the beach of Cephalonia in August 2019. I felt deep sympathetic to her like being kindred spirits. That was the reason why we had invited her on a cruse with the yacht “Lady O” to celebrate the 80th birthday of my husband Richard on August 30, 2019.
    Dear Anastasia, may you always be on the safe side of the waves and be protected by your guardian angel.
    Much love and blessings
    Renate and Richard
