My mother was scheduled to fly to Germany for my Grandfather’s 100th birthday celebration in November. I was going to surprise them both by flying out there without any advanced notice. Unfortunately, that celebration will never occur. My Grandfather passed away in his sleep this morning in Greene, Germany. He had a full and memorable life and was recently plagued with health issues and cancer. He is now with my Grandmother in a better place free of pain and suffering. He is survived by his three Daughters and four Grandchildren. Rest in peace Opa.
