In Memory of Ulrike



I was Ulrike's hairdresser for the last few years and found her to be vivacious, full of life, and with such community spirit.

I often admired Ulrike getting out and about exploring her 'great backyard' that was Vancouver with true excitement and wonder, as well the stories she would tell about her various adventures overseas.

Ulrike lived nearby and would often come by my shop with a delicious little treat for me keeping her from 'taking the scissors' to her own bangs'. In fact she came to see me just before Christmas, excited to give me a little gift of Scottish shortbread in the shape of Scotty Dogs (I'm Scottish and have a Scotty dog theme). She was excited for me to open it there and then just so she could see my reaction. I really appreciated her thinking of me with such thought and consideration.

Here is an 'after' picture I took of Ulrike quite recently when I did her hair, which appears on my website.

I am absolutely devastated by this sad news and I will really miss seeing Ulrike's smiling face every couple of months.

Condolences to family and friends. x
