My dear friend Dr. Annemarie Roeper passed away yesterday morning.
I feel so very honored to have known her. During our five years of working together, we had many adventures; including travels to one of our favorite places in the universe -- Big Sur -- and publishing many books and articles.
Over the past year, we had been working together on a memoir about her childhood in Germany. She made me promise to finish it, and I was so happy to be able to put the first draft in her hands shortly before she died. Much has been written about Annemarie and the Bondy family, but she was delighted to know that this chapter in her life story would be fully told. MARIENAU will be published in the next month and I think it will be a wonderful tribute to Annemarie's exceptional life.
Should you wish to leave a note for the family, you can visit http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/annemarieroeper. Over 3000 comments have been written since the site was posted last week, which should give you an idea of the powerful force Annemarie was here on earth. Now that she is part of what she called, "The Mystery," I'm sure she will continue to be a magnificent guiding angel to us all.
In deep gratitude,
