  4. My sincere condolences to you and your family Karen. May the comfort of your family and friends help to ease your pain during this very difficult time. Heinz will forever hold a special place in my heart, he was the most kind and gentle not so typical German man! He had a passion for food and a love for gold and money! His wife had many similar qualities and they are now finally at peace together.
