Sharon and Konrad,
I was so sorry to hear of Thomas' passing early in February. He was a fine man, loving husband and father. He had a mischeivious smile and subtle sense of humor. Over the past year, I'm sure taking care of Thomas must have been a real challenge for you both. Know that he is a better place, with the love of his life, Ursula, his liebchen, his darling. The way he said good morning to her, kissed her and called her liebchen always made me smile. That is love. Sharon, there was no doubt of their love for each other and their love for you. Sharon and Konrad, you have my sincere condolences. I hope you take some comfort from knowing his struggle is over. Sincerely, Irene
