    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Kaethe. My Dad was very close to her and I am glad I was able to meet her and speak to her when I visited out West. She was very generous and kind to my friends and I and I was able to speak with her one on one about her life and her brother (my Opa). My condolences to your family during this difficult time. She was a remarkable person.
