Aninna and Jennifer,
My deepest sympathies on the loss of Jorg. I will always remember his smile, his talks about back home when we visited the coffee shop and his wonderful cakes he made for us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you both and to Jorg’s family back home. God Bless

Our thoughts and hearts are with you Anina.

From: Karen Hutchinson/Dave Bradbury
Relation: via Annina

Annina – our Sweet Swiss Cheese – Joerg was way too young – this just was not in the “script”. We always remember you describing to us, the correct way to say his name; the times we saw this athlete running up or biking on Anarchist Mountain; buying his bread at the Windmill. We think about you often and can’t imagine how tall Jennifer must be now.

From: Ash
