    Dear Family
    Way back, I think it was 1975, I had the opportunity to meet Onkel Manfred. He was actually the cousin of my father, Josef Schott in Munich, Germany. I always treasure the memories I have of those lovely days and remember Betty and Robin and Monica (still very small) very well.
    May God give you strength and patience and may the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.
