  6. Ich werde dich vermissen, Tante Elli. Ihr wart sehr freundlich und liebevoll. VIELEN DANK FÜR DIE VIELEN SPASSIGEN ZEITEN. DIE LANGEN AUTOFAHRTEN UND WUNDERBAREN ABENDESSEN. Eure Freundschaft und Freundlichkeit haben unser Leben tief berührt. Wir sehen uns wieder. VIEL LIEBE VON MIR UND DEN KINDERN. DIANA, DANIEL, STEPHEN UND LAURA

  7. Tante Elli brought so much joy, compassion and kindness to us all and I will forever remind my children about our favourite Tante. She always had a sparkle in her eye, a story to cheer you up and love to share. Her patience with me on the vacation trips we took was endless and I’m sure tested even her never ending supply of calm and love for a niece! Tante Elli will be talked about so my children will know of her and she will always be remembered with smiles.

  8. Dear Paul, Heidi, and family,

    I am deeply saddened to hear about the loss of your beloved mother, Elli. Although I had the privilege of meeting her only once, her warmth and kindness were evident, and it’s clear that she was a remarkable person.

    During this challenging time, my thoughts are with you and your family. I hope that the fond memories you shared with Elli bring you comfort and peace.

    Please know that I am here for you, and if there’s anything I can do to support you, feel free to reach out.

    Warmest regards,
    David Lee
