With her two gold medals at the 1976 Olympic Games in Innsbruck, Rosi Mittermaier provided great winter sports moments. At the beginning of January she died at the age of 72 after a serious illness, her death caused great sadness. Now the family of the native of Munich has said goodbye to her with a touching obituary in the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”.
The ad is headed with a quote from the book “The Little Prince” by the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. When asked by the little prince “Are you afraid of death?” the rose answers: “But no. I lived, I blossomed and used my strength as much as I could. And love, given a thousand times over, returns to the one who gave it. So I want to wait for the new life and wither without fear or despondency.”
