To my teachers and instructors Isa and Yolanda Lindwall, Markus and Angela Langholf, Hennes Groddeck
and Dr Luiz Izquierdo for everything I was able to learn, experience and remember, I am most grateful.

My grateful thanks also goes to my parents, Hermann & Edith Höfer, to my sister Simone and to all relations of my family surrounds, in which I was allowed to grow up.

My thanks also to all those many companions I got to know during my time at school, playing football and during my studies and formations/apprenticeships.

Also deeply grateful I am to all those people and friends, whose life I was, and still am, allowed to come in contact with during my private and vocational paths.

Finally, I would like to thank the Source of all Life for giving me this wonder-ful life, which I am now allowed to live, together with Renate, the Love of my Heart.
