Dear Sophie, Lisa and family,
I am so sorry for your loss of husband, father and grandfather. My prayers to all of you. Be grateful for the good memories each of you have of a truly wonderful person, who loved you dearly. May you find peace in the fact that he is eternally at rest.
May your memories keep him alive in your hearts.
Love and peace, Katie

It is so surreal to see your image here. I am comforted to know that you are resting in peace, but so overwhelmed that our time together has come to an end. As a little girl I would crawl between you and Tante Sophie in bed and I exclaimed you had a "holey" bed. (Tante I know you remember these times). Cherished memories. You always welcomed and loved me. As I grew older you gave me dating and boyfriend advice. You have always been a steady, calming, presence in my life. I will miss you but will honor you by carrying on and offering the same steady support and love to our family always. Prosit Onkel Gottfried...I love you. Ingrid
