    To Joan and the whole Theobald family… So sorry to read of your Dad’s passing. I was looking up an obituary for a friend’s son and saw you Dad’s obituary. Wishing you and your family peace and comfort in good memories.

    I so loved Karl. He lived with us when he came the the U.S. He was more a brother to me than my blood brothers. We shared a love for books, movies, classical music and most importantly our love for Jesus Christ as our Savior. I hope Karl received my last letter a few weeks ago. I sent the book ‘Jesus Calling’ along with it. See you later dear cousin!
