Dear Betty,
I am sorry I am in so late, but the German fans of him have not realized that the great man has passed away.
What a wonderful man. He was so gracious when I contacted him as a doctoral student when we both wrote about the Nazi Olympics many years ago. Whenever we met later on we ran at conferences and also in Columbia together and talked and talked. When we were first at your house my daughter Myrthe (then 8 months old) astonished him as the "whistling baby". Did he love children and with it life.
We will miss him and his wonderful sense of humor, his determination and versatility.
We will not forget him,
Arnd Krueger

Dear Vicky, Ellie, Max, and Isa, I was very sad to hear of your dad's passing. I have fond memories of him from playing at your house and from the university. You are all in my thoughts.

I'm thankful for the laughter and good times I shared with you. After the trip to Guatemala in the late 80s you said "We'll tell stories about this for the rest of our lives." And you were right - I still tell those stories. I will miss you.
