    Sandy,

    My name is Sabine and I am one of Klaus’ first cousins. My mom is Klaus’ dad’s youngest sister. I just heard the news today and want to express my deepest condolences to you and your family. I got to see Klaus last year when he and I both happened to be in Mannheim at the same time (I live in Oklahoma). You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers. With warmest regards, Sabine Brown

    Dear Sandy,
    I only know Klaus through his quiet cheerful greetings as we crossed paths in the hallway on our way to and from work or conversations the three of us shared when he was working in the office. I remember him as a friendly and kind work neighbour, and I remember him as your beloved business and life partner. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Sincerely, Jennie Washburn
