Husband's Aunt in Cologne
We traveled to Cologne today to visit one of Eric's few surviving relatives. His Grand Aunt. Her entire house was vintage and looked like it was frozen in a time machine from 1962.

There were a great deal of wooden sculptures everywhere that had been carved by her late husband. He passed away seven years ago.

She speaks of him often. There is a sadness in her eyes, and a feeling of nostalgia. As though she wants to go back to that time and relive those beautiful moments.

She's a wonderful woman. We slept in the childhood bedroom of her son. (He's now in his forties and living in another city)
