In loving memory of Karl-Dieter Myrenne, a good friend, who died May 24, 2011, 75 years young. A chemist, inventor, lover of music and art, a gardener, a traveler, a loving father to Michelle, a wonderful opa to his grandson, a regular at Burning Man Festival - he will be much missed by his friends.
