An Enthusiastic Friend

Julie (Sprague) Wilson

I was a friend of Ulrike in high school. She was quick-witted, clever and enthusiastic, and was immediately accepted into our group when she moved from Toronto to Guelph.

Jurgen, I cannot believe Ulrike ever played with Barbies; that is so unlike the "Rikki" I knew!

Although we drifted apart, Ulrike was still part of my life, as I heard of her many escapades with and through my sister Chris. I was never as bold and daring as Ulrike, and am in awe of her many adventures that I've read of here.

My condolences to the whole family; you have lost a much-loved treasure! Tiger and Jurgen, I remember with fondness how much she cared for you both, and was not shy to express that, even as a teenager. Thank you to the family for making me welcome in your home so many years ago!
