    Dear Irmgard, I am very thankfull that we had such a longlasting and steady friendship over the years. You helped me especially when I was working in the US at the UTHSC in Houston in 1991/92 and gave me very valuable advices. You were always interested in what was going on in the world and we had interesting discussions about what is important in life. I will miss you! God bless you. Dear Don, thank you that you made Irmi happy for so many years! I send you my deepest sympathies.

    Ruth Schielein Dear Irmgard, you have been my godmother and it is nice that we always kept in touch. Your talent to take life as it comes always impressed me very much. The 3weeks I spent with you in 1974 together with Mathilde also were very nice. That was a long time ago but by no means forgotten. I really like to think back to that time. I also will not forget you and will remember you very fondly. Dear Irmgard, rest in peace. Dear Don, a warm greeting to you. I am thinking of you with great sympathy.

    Irmgard, you were the faithful love of my brother Don, for many many years. You traveled on many trips together here in the USA and abroad. It was nice visiting you and Don there in N.C. You will be sorely missed. Peace be with you, now with our Lord in Heaven. 🙏❤️
