  • Rita Schmidt says:

    Dear Olga, my deepest regards to you and the loss of your beloved husband, my brother. I would have loved to see him once again … now it is too late. I do very well remember our trip to our home country East Prussia in 1994, 21 years ago. We had so much fun. And us playing cards in the evening and Heinz always one!!! And our trip to Vancouver Island and the week we went on that trip to Alaska. These memories no one can take away from us.
    I send you all my love, you are for me like a sister … you always were. Love Rita
