Family friend

(Submitted by a family friend.)

My mother (...) was an old, long time friend of your father. She is ninety one years old and lives with me.

Your father would call her once or twice a year to say "Hello" and chat. It always meant so much to her and she was very saddened to hear of his death.

I am sure you are aware that his life and passing were the entire back page of the Austrian National magazine.

I only knew him to be most pleasant and gracious when calling my mother but her reaction showed what a fine person he was.

Thank you for your letter. I will read it to my mother.
