Meet the Players – Chapter 2


My father’s family, starting with my grandparents:

Friedrich Wilhelm

Friedrich Wilhelm

My grandfather Friedrich Wilhelm married Martha. They had five living children: Gertrud – Erich – Irene – Curt and Lisa. These people play a huge part in my story and I think it is nice for you, my readers, to have a visual image of them. I will start with Grandpa Friedrich Wilhelm, whom I never knew personally. He

Martha

Martha

was only 54 when he died, a few years before I was born. I loved him, knew him through a very large photograph over Granny’s bed and the stories she told. This is an old photo I have of Grandma when she was a young woman and fell in love with a black smith and actually worked very hard all her life. Stay tuned…

Author: - there was so much I never talked about and now, that my memoir "We Don't Talk About That" is written I can't stop talking about it. And the reviews I get are awesome; so I think this book needed to be written. Interesting that I receive many e-mails from people who read the book and now tell me their similar stories... Did I open "a can of worms?" I think there are so many people who carry a heavy memory load and they do need to "unload". But interesting enough, even more people want to know MORE of my life and therefore I am working on a sequel.
