Then one day, when I was much older, my cousin told me: ‘You are just like Herman, you know. You have the same sensitivity and humor. He’d be so proud of you.’ And it was the greatest compliment I’d ever received in my life.
I worked at the same cafe for 28 years, but it just went out of business, so I had to find new work. Before it was like I had a family. I saw the same people every day. But now I just have a job. One day you lose something, and you say: Oh my God. I was happy. And I didn't even know it.
