Today was my Father-in-law´s funeral and the snow was pouring down. He was a modest man who lived a quiet life as a farmer. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with Alzheimer at 72 years of age and after a fall down the stairs 2 years ago, his condition went rapidly downhill.
This was written on his death announcement.
"As God saw that the path was becoming too long, the hill too steep, the breathing too difficult, he put his arm around me and said, come home".
Good-bye Otto, rest in peace.
