Oma, you were a true inspiration. You were our mentor, constant supporter, laughter generator, and most importantly, our dear, dear friend. We will miss those late night card games, deep conversations and watching you model how beautiful a marriage could be. We will look after Opa and will keep you in our hearts forever. Until we meet again ...
