Dedication: To Aunt Anna. She was very religious, a good person and a Alzheimer’s patient for more than ten years. She was so aware that she committed sins like pulling her clothes off. She was so afraid for her punishment. Only the last year of her life she lived in peace, unconscious of the world and her fears. I often think of her when I see my daughter Anneloes, who is named after her.
