Dear Uta

I am so sorry to hear of Dr Engmanns passing. He was a very kind soft spoken man who I had the utmost respect for. I was his dental hygienist in Wallaceburg and it was always nice to see you both. He spoke of his children and grandchildren with pride. Sincere sympathy to you and your family, Uta.
