IDSF has received a letter from friends of Oliver Wessel-Therhorn writing on behalf of his family. It is addressed to all those who knew OWT and contains information on the funeral services that will be held on 22/11/2010. IDSF reproduces it here, hoping that many will donate to Oliver's children, Rebecca and Raphael.

Dear dancers,

Our wonderful and unique „Olli“, Oliver Wessel-Therhorn, passed away very suddenly on November 12, 2010 after a long and brave fight against his severe illness. On behalf of the family a funeral ceremony is held on

 

Monday, November 22, 2010 at 11:00 a.m.

in the Pfarrkirche St. Joseph,

Münster – Kinderhaus (City of Munster)

The burial will be held later in a closed private family ceremony.

Due to limited space in the church and for administration purposes we kindly ask you for your reply if you intend to attend the funeral ceremony.
