emelyIn the fall of 2021 we had to say goodbye with a heavy heart to our beloved Emely, who left us at the age of 35. In how many children’s rooms and photo albums will she live on?





emelyThe life of our beloved Antares was marked by ups and downs. Physical ailments and pain repeatedly replaced periods of carefreeness. In the year 2023, the pain prevailed and the moments without discomfort became fewer and fewer. In the winter of the same year, we let our dear Anti go… the many beautiful memories of him remain.
