Klaus was my brother, the brother-in-law from Peter and the uncle of our children Sabine and Ulrich.He always, since he was a little boy, wanted to go around the world and 1969 he went to USA for a new job.There he met Carol and Brian and Peter and I joined the baptizing of Eric.In all the past years Klaus visited our parents and later our house at least once a year for several days. We spent every time lots of hours together, talking about our youth, old friends and happenings and we laughed very often, because Klaus had a great sence of humor.At his last visit in July he had a very good time on a family-party and today all the guests and the family are happy to have had him with us.Klaus we miss you!!!!Your sister Ingrid and family.
