Judy and family, I´m so deeply saddened for your loss. Your mother Birgit always holds a special place in my heart for fond memories of childhood spent at your home. A gorgeous beauty, I remember her inner strength coupled by a shy demeanor and lots of giggles. She holds a gracious and delicate soul that now finds peaceful repose in heaven. God bless xox
