I am very sorry to hear of Werner's passing.  By way of this site, I sent a note to Werner expressing my pleasure touring northern Virginia this last summer while visiting my son in Washington D C.  I hadn't communicated with him since high school, but he responded at once.  I remember visiting Werner some time during high school.  We ate lunch with his parents, and I listened as the talked in English and they in German.  I thought it was so interesting the way they blended languages.  Since then, I've spent 30 years teaching students whose second language was English but sometimes Spanish.  Many students, depending on family attitudes, spoke both or English with varying levels of Spanish.   Again, sympathy to Werner's family.

I hadn't visited the site for some time... and am very sad to hear of Werner's passing. 

Even though we didn't move to Dixon until the start of our freshman year I had know Werner since he was a 'young lad'.  He was a distant relative and we had played as children at various family gatherings/reunions.  We lived only 2 blocks from his home when we moved to Dixon and regularly sat in front of there TV with the family and we watched 'EGOR' late at night on the weekends.  Werner's Mom was the best cook and her traditional German dishes were FABULOUS!   Waltraud did the knitting  for her large family throughout her childhhood.  I still have the dress she knitted for my fourth or fifth birthday with Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf  characters across the front. 

My condolences to Elizabeth and the family.  I believe his brother Steven is still alive, but do not presently know where he lives..

Werner was my first friend when my family moved to the Lincoln School area. He was always kind to me and caring.
