    I was very shocked today to see that my old Unit 7418 friend Rudi had passed away. I fully expected to meet him again and chat about our Easter weekend together. I was his roommate. I really enjoyed meeting him and talking about restaurants especially the Three Greenhorns. Sympathies to Linda, Michael and Cori whom I got to know. You all looked after him so well. I am so sorry I cannot attend tomorrow but will think of you all. I am feeling better and would love to see you again. He was such a fine gentleman and was loved by all.

    All the best, Stutt Pottruff

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Rudi. May the love of those around you and your memories give you strength and help you through the time ahead. I had my very first job with Rudi at The Three Greenhorns and remember him as a fair, very competent person in his field but also with a good sence of humour. I am glad I had a chance to visit with Rudi a while ago, remenicing about “the good old times”.
    With our deepest sympathy Heinz & Irene Bloch-Locatelli and also in behalf of Hugo Wolf (in Costa Rica)

    Mike, Susanita (and the rest of the Kuhbock family). I am sorry to hear of the passing of your father. While I never met Rudi I am certain he was a good person as he raised a fine son who I call a friend.
    Sandra and I are thinking of you.
    Take care,

    Bryan Sveinson
