  • Liebe Tante Lydia u. Familie, I wish to send my sincere condolences to all of you, as you mourn the loss of a husband, father, grandfather and brother. Tante Lydia I appreciate the great friends you and Onkel Ewald were to our family. I'll never forget Onkel Ewald's "firm" handshake. As I teenager, I always had to prepare myself for his handshake, so he wouldn't "crush" my hand. I always remembered that handshake, so now when I shake someone's hand I also make sure it's a good firm handshake. God bless you all as you rejoice that he is now with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! - Posted by: Harry Rohde (Friend) on: Jan 26, 2023
