I wish to extend my condolences to the Franz Stiger family. Truly, he was an extraordinary soul, full of loyality, yet deep compassion for mankind. I came across this story on snopes.com and was touched by the account of "The angel of mercy". Thank you, Franz Stiger...you make us proud, and I feel priviliged to have read of your kindness to Charlie Brown. We salute you. May your act of kindness make others wish to follow your lead. This story touched my heart deeply.
