Dear Eileen,
I just learned of Edward's passing. I'm so sorry about your loss. But I am thankful for the many good years you two were able to share together in Wien, Sevenoaks and California. And I am so thankful that I had a chance to visit you two (and your mother and son when they were there) several times in Sevenoaks when I was directing the Michigan State University programs at the University of London every summer. I have so many happy memories of afternoons and evenings at your home enjoying chats, reminiscences and ausgezeichnet meals with the Benko-Mowatt family and sometimes the Erbers, too, when Inge and Walter were visiting!
My brother, who is 80 and living in Santa Susana, Simi Valley, California will soon join Edward. He was suddenly diagnosed with leukemia and is fading fast. I am unable to return to the USA to be with him in his last days and can only send hugs and memories with him via internet and phone calls. With you, too, I can only send you loving hugs via this message. I am thinking of you and your son and know you will miss Edward terribly but know he will live on in your hearts and memories.
The last I knew of your son, he was working in Las Vegas, I think. One of my nieces, who is an author, lived there for awhile but missed California so moved back. She is currently living with my brother and helping to care for him in his last days.
Well, Eileen, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. If you want to communicate, my email is still
Love and hugs,
Caroline (C.C.Latham) IES Wien 1968-70
