  • Erika Stapelmann says:

    Thank you so much Connie and Helm for all the work and for your warm and welcoming LOVE you shared with everyone. You made it look so effortless. The “Viewing – Time” of your
    “Mama” (my sister Adele) with all the family, relatives and many friends was very special. Adele was the favourite sister among the five siblings. She sent us the most precious cards, not only for special occasions, often just because she felt a deep urge to connect, which everytime was a wonderful and delightful surprise. Helm’s speech at the funeral service brought tears to many of us. Yes,*Adele* had a genuine, sincere and wonderful personality that truly touched everyone that knew her. I miss YOU very much MY SCHWESTERLEIN !!
