My daughter & I had the honor of meeting Siegfried, May 2015/a gracious & kind man/at his secret garden. People were in line to take a picture with him. When it was our turn we also talked & asked questions about his life & the animals. Siegfried enjoyed talking to us & continued talking even though there was a line because it was clear we weren´t there just for the photo. I saw a 20/20 special on Siegfried & Roy, Sept. 2020, it explained a lot & did a digital reenactment of Roy´s accident. I am a big animal lover too & the accident broke my heart. I am very sad about Siegfried´s passing, my heart felt condolences go out to his family, friends & animals. This is truly an end of an era.

My heart is completely broken. I loved Siegfried and Roy as people. Two incredibly different men. Siegfried I will miss our conversations. He was incredibly kind, caring and gentle. I dreamt about him about 3 nights in a row before his passing. I got the news and I felt like someone kicked me in the gut, I felt sick. I’m so sad I’ll never get to have our chats again. I’ll miss you so much. Glad I saw you on my last visit to LV last year. I will cherish your friendship always.

We went to see their show in Vegas and it was beautiful. After Roy died I sent a mass card to Siegfried. He sent me a lovely thank you note. I think he was very kind and I am sorry they are not here together to have their show.

I had the opportunity to meet and speak with this kind man Siegfried in 2017 while visiting Las Vegas. He approached me because I had an Elvis jacket on. I told him I was a big fan of Elvis and of course Siegfried & Roy. I told him I grew up watching their TV Special shows. Siegfried told of his special friendship with Elvis Presley. He asked me where I was from and where my family came from. I told him I was born in America but my mother’s family came from Germany. Then this kind man presented me with one of his gold coins which he pulled out from the sleeve of my jacket. I was very blessed to meet this gentleman. I will miss him. My sincerest condolences to his family, friends and fans all over the world.

Siegfried, I loved you and Roy and worked with you in two shows. What a thrill to see you and Roy in your costumes and your beautiful stage make-up and fine personal styling. I even attended Roy's birthday in the 70's when you gave Roy another white cub tiger. Blessings on all your family and friends in the "biz" we will never forget you. Kathleen Manley
