I fondly remember many Christmas Day feasts, as a child, at Tante Frieda and Onkel Jakob's home. Tante Frieda always cooked-up a storm of many different types of wonderfully delicious foods!
When she continued to live on her own in her Bridgeland home, I would visit her, admiring her lovely flowers. We had great chats about sports, mostly figure skating and tennis, which we both enjoyed viewing on TV.
Ruhe in Frieden, liebe Tante Frieda
