Munich – A piece of Munich went with him. And a mother who only reconciled with her children on her deathbed.
At the beginning of the memorial service for legend Antoine “Tony” Netzl († 91), at which TV star Jatta Speidel also came to the crematorium in Eastern Cemetery yesterday afternoon, Frank Sinatra’s “I Did It My Way” played.
Birgit Netzel shed tears. There was silence on the radio between mother and daughter for 24 years. Christian between mother and son for 10 years. Reconciliation took place only on the deathbed in the Großhadern clinic.
“My mother loved then and is no longer so harsh and bitter. She apologized,” Birgit Netzel told BILD.
The break happened because the mother later wanted to be the boss at Bamberg House as the daughter’s employee. It didn’t go well.
Former Obi Christian Ude (74) in his scintillating funeral speech paid tribute to the deceased’s great love for his life partner, Ole Olosan († 81). He died a day before the funeral after a stroke.
Ude: “Ole didn’t want to be without his Tony anymore. They’ve been together for 60 years. It’s comforting that they’re together again.”
