My Uncle Sepp.

My Uncle Sepp died last week. He was 93 years old and a veteran of the 2nd world war. He was a very sweet man who really loved people. I was privileged to have spent a year living in Germany when I was younger and spent a lot of time getting to know him. He fought in Hitler's German army and his identical twin brother was killed at the Russian front at the age of 17. He was a faithful husband to my Aunt Annie for over 60 years and a good father to Heinz and Oswald. He was my favorite Uncle and thankfully we got to spend a few days with him last year as we were traveling in Europe. He will be sorely missed.
