    Dear Dirk and Jackie, I have been thinking a lot about in the last few days about your mom. No more monthly telephone calls about the weather, politics and life in general. We had almost 50 years of wonderful memories. Many birthday parties with the famous Haselnusscreme Torte. Many enjoyable hours at the opera. A good working relationsship when we were at Jagenberg, We shared our love for the cottage life, swimming, boating etc. though she was definitely a better surfer than I ever will be. She could be trusted to find the best deals and shared them freely. I talked her into Tai Chi, we got to know our German relatives when they were visiting, we were both proud of our sons and worried about our husbands health. Saying good bye to part of your life is hard. Hope you will be able to cope well in the next difficult days, Heidi
