Chers collègues Slow Food,

Comme déjà dit à Klaus plus tôt cette semaine, la disparition d'Ursula est véritable une perte pour nous et notre mouvement. Bien que je n'ai pas eu le plaisir de la côtoyer longtemps, j'ai toujours apprécié l'intelligence de son propos et sa capacité à voir le bon et le positif de nos contributions. Ursula était certainement un roc pour l'organisation. Pour moi, je garderai toujours sa fougue, sa recherche du bien commun et aussi la brillante étincelle d'espoir qu'elle portait dans ses yeux pour le futur de notre organisation et notre mouvement.

J'appuie la proposition de Carlo également de créer une commémoration de son travail indéfectible par une bourse d'études en son nom

Paix et guérison à sa famille, ses proches et à notre famille étendue qu'est Slow Food.

Bobby (Slow Food International Councilor Canada)

Queridos todos.

Que noticia tan conmovedora, nos queda celebrar su vida, ejemplo y trabajo por un mundo bueno, limpio y justo. El vacío que sentimos se debe transformar en empeño para honrar su memoria y todo lo que Ursula aportó a Slow Food como familia y a cada uno de nosotros.

Un abrazo a todos, especialmente a su familia y a Slow Food Alemania.

Je viens de prendre connaissance de cette terrible nouvelle, quelle tristesse... Ceux qui comme moi avaient eu la chance de venir à Berlin pour Wir Haben Es Satt n'avaient que pu être impressionné par son charisme, sa vision et sa gentillesse.
Toutes mes condoléances à la famille, aux proches et à nos collègues d'Allemagne... 
Bon courage

Ursula in Bra (c) Richard Mc Carthy.jpgDear International Slow Food family, 
This is absolutely heart-breaking news. 
Yesterday, when I was getting tote bags and empty egg containers ready to visit my Sunday farmers market, I made the terrible mistake of checking messages on my phone. Why did this news have to be on it? Paolo, thank you for being the bearer of such horribly sad news. As Georges said, “I still cannot believe this is real.” Yes, I feel the same. I went to the market, and then suddenly remembered the news. 
I particularly like Amorelle’s description of Ursula’s “vision and determination to make Slow Food matter.” I, too, remember this about Ursula and am so grateful for her leadership both within Germany (which I had been lucky enough to see in action — even attending the Stuttgart Slow Food Fair) and of course, in the International Executive Committee where Ursula has always pushed Slow Food to be its best, Meetings would always begin with Carlo’s morning speech, followed by a long pregnant pause. He would ask, “Any remarks?” Again, another long pregnant pause. At this point, Ursula was always the first to respond. Never timid and always as if she had spent the entire evening before anticipating Carlo’s presentation, Ursula would respond with everything I would have to have said but so much more. She leaves a huge hole in the leadership of the organization’s international posture. 
She also leaves another huge hole for all of us: In friendship. I was looking forward to so many more years of friendship with Ursula. When I joined the Committee, she took me under her wing, as she did Edie and Joris (as we arrived more or less at similar moments in the Committee’s evolution. For me, I looked forward to each meeting, in part because I would get to spend time with Ursula. At the last Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, I was very concerned about Ursula’s health and spirits. She looked frail, yet insisted that she was putting up a fight in her battle with cancer. 
And while we had spoken since our last meeting in February 2020 in Bra, this was the last time I had spent time with Ursula. I was so greatly relieved to see her. She looked healthy and as though she had that bounce in her step. The attached photo is one that I took of Ursula when we walked from Pollenzo to Bra for a cappuccino (or as she referred to as kinder drinks). She indicated that she wasn’t out of the woods yet, health wise, but I certainly felt that she looked and acted as if her former self had returned. 
My heart goes out to Ursula’s family and to the Slow Food Germany family. We owe a debt of gratitude for Ursula and how she has shaped the head and heart of our international family. 
Richard (USA)

Dear Friends

It is with a heavy heart that we learn such sad news. We will miss Ursula, Slow Food will miss Ursula, humanity will miss Ursula... 

We will remember her as a brilliant woman, determined, visionary and pragmatic at the same time. Today Slow Food is certainly mourning one of its greatest inspirational women... may she rest in peace and let’s hope that her family, all of us and her team in Germany will find the strength to overcome these difficult moments. 

We will always keep you in our hearts, Ursula!

Soul sister found and lost.
Only wish I had the chance to have told her my last words, but she knew...
We shared the same birthday... the same thoughts... over and over again.
We would always ask ourselves how a German and a hot-tempered could be so much alike...and then burst into laughter... I am so grateful to have had my Ursula in my life...
I am broken today... In our culture we say God bless you and your family
