In 1955, Wini changed night schools to Jamaica High and had his eye on a girl who sat in the front row. At Christmas time, the teacher asked them to sing holiday songs from their homelands. The girl got up and sang some songs from her native country - which to his surprise turned out to be Germany (he thought she was French.) He was completely taken with her singing and that night walked her to the bus stop. The rest is history.
P.S. He still loves listening to her sing.
Stefanie loved school and spent most of her youth pursuing education or working on the family farm.
Wini preferred more hands-on learning and spent his teens and early twenties biking around Europe learning as much from various jobs as possible.
