    We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Inge. She was always so nice to us and we will miss her terribly. She is in a better place now looking down on us and she is united with dad and mom. We are disappointed that we will not be able to attend the funeral. Rest assured we will be there in spirit!
