I am so sorry and sad to learn about Christian`s passing. I was shocked when I discoverd this obituary - since I have not heared from him for a while and did not get any answer from him to my email for last christmas I was looking for any further way to contact him and looked for him in the internet.
I know Christian from the time at the UCL in London early 90s. We have always stayed in contact since. I have visited him in March 2000 in NYC., staying at his mom's house during that week. And I also met him when he and Humberto have once visited Berlin.
You are in my thougts and prayers.
Amelie Griessenbeck from Germany, Berlin
