So very sorry to hear of Uncle Alex's passing. I remember him so well. He was my smart,cheerful and so very handsome 'uncle'. He spoke as the Master of Ceremonies at my wedding in 1972 and what a wonderful job he did in the sharing of my life and in the creation of the "mood" at our wedding day celebrations. Always a classy guy. Remembering you with great fondness. My heart and thoughts go out to my beautiful Aunt Rose.
Much love, Rose Knowles(Fuentmann)

Aufrichtige Anteilnahme entbieten Dir lieber Alex, meinem "alten" Studienfreund, Deiner Frau Sandy und den Kids und Deiner Mama, die ich vor fast 23 Jahren persönlich kennenlernen durfte, die 6 Thomallas aus Wolfratshausen, Bavaria, Germany.

Winfried and family.

Es weht der Wind ein Blatt von Baum, von vielen Blättern eines. Das eine Blatt, man merkt es kaum, den eines ist ja keines.

Doch dieses eine Blatt allein war Teil von unsrem Leben. Drum wird uns dieses Blatt allein für immer, immer fehlen!
