What a shock to read that Andreas is no longer there.

We only met 4 times, of which twice in Berlin last year. Once he
invited me to Glendale (United States) and once he followed my
invitation to Groningen (the Netherlands).

He and his work gave me a lot of inspiration, and it was always fun
with him, in office-hours and after work.

I wish his family a lot of strength.

(Translation in German)

Was für ein Schock zu lesen dass Andreas nicht mehr da ist.

Wir haben uns nur 4 mal getroffen, die letzten beiden Treffen waren in
Berlin vergangenes Jahr.
Einmal hat er mich nach Glendale (USA) eingeladen und einmal ist er
meiner Einladung nach Groningen (Niederlande) gefolgt.

Er und seine Arbeit haben mich sehr inspiriert, wir hatten viel Spaß
zusammen, vor und nach Feierabend.

Seiner Familie wünsche ich viel Kraft.
