We had many chats - enough to know how much you loved your family and how proud you were of your children. Our conversations brought us closer and we expressed our love for each other many times. You will always be in my memory as a man who overcame all odds and still endured. Your strength in that I will always admire. As you and I said the last time we met "I love you". I say it now again "I love you, Otto". Our mother, too, is happy that you are at rest.
