“I still have good reason to believe that I will not have to start my final journey any time soon…”
Fritz Wepper (79) wrote hopefully about his state of health in his book “An Eternal Moment”.
For almost a year the popular actor (“For Heaven’s sake”) has been fighting metastatic black cancer with his head held high.
Vaper is celebrating his 80th birthday on Tuesday. Perhaps in the rehabilitation clinic in Bad Eibling (Bavaria). According to BILD’s information, Wepper’s recovery should proceed.
It is celebrated on television. In his honor, BR will show the moving documentary “My Fritz – A Personal View of Fritz Vaper” shot by his wife Susan (47) on Monday at 10 pm.
In it, she offers a very personal insight: how she and her brother, actor Elmer (77), play puppet theater for their youngest daughter, Philippa (9). Visited the bus stop where he was born.
And finally, how the actor, apparently moved, goes to the family grave – where he wants to bury himself!
In his book Wepper writes: “My final resting place has long been decided upon, it is our family grave on the Winthierfriedhof in Munich-Neuhausen. I have made a will, which is considered important to me. “
How he wishes to be buried is also public and is visible through his wife’s film. “I want to be buried in my black kimono that I wear to meditate. I would like to wear a Buddhist bracelet with wooden beads on my wrist. Both symbols of letting go.”
Vepper also had to let go of his faithful companion, the Deutsch-Drahthaar man Aron. The hunting dog recently succumbed to cancer at the age of 12.
