Our condolences to you and your family on the passing of your uncle Arnie. I will never forget his visits over here in Luxembourg. His presence allowed us to meet the whole Steffen family and not to forget the pleasant farewell parties in the Dominican convent in Luxembourg city where Margerit, my mother´s sister lived.
