To the Kroo Family:

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother/grandmother was a lovely woman who always put her family first. She was a loyal and hard-working member of the Donau Schwaben German American Cultural Center, especially the "Frauengruppe" where she was a member for many years. We will remember her with fondness. My deepest sympathy to you all.

Frau Karoline Lindenmaier and Family
