“For Werner, it’s all about his work. That’s what he cares about and that’s what he is interested in. Till his last breath he will be out there creating things and making opportunities for people. He will be creating more types of work that people can benefit from. That’s really what turns him on, his work.” ~ Gonneke Spits
