Dear Martha, Jutta, Doris, Ellen. My most sincere and heartfelt condolences. I have so many nice memories of Gerhard. The many visits we had, his knowledge of sooo many things from all the books that he read, where I was only able to listen and learn. The many things he did in our home. It was always a pleasure to work with him because he was a master of his trade and always explained what and how to do it. He will be missed. God bless you and comfort you as only HE can.

My heartfelt sympathy to the whole family. Gerhard was a very kind, gentle and caring person. The last time I spoke with him was at my Dad's funeral. He was always very social :) May God's love and peace surround each and every one of you as you go through this difficult journey in life.
