July 3, 2017: While this is not about a club member, it is about a friend of ours. Helmut and Ursula, were dear friends to many in our club. They brought smiles to the faces of anyone who heard them play, and always welcomed us as old friends. I am passing on info from their children upon request.
My brother, Harald, and I are so sad to inform our friends about our dear mom's passing just after midnight this morning. She was the best mom we could ever have had, she was an amazing Oma to our children, Elisabeth, Kristina, Kiah and Miles and of course the most loving wife to our father, Helmut. She took Don (Donald) in as family from day one. She is also so loved by her family still in Germany, her sisters, a brother in law, sisters in law, her nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews. She has many, many friends who we know will miss her dearly.
