Frank from America is dead! We knew about his illness and nevertheless we relatives are very sad. Frank is the key figure for our families who brought the big Lahrman(n) families in the USA and Germany together again through his genealogy and his first visit to Germany after the disastrous World War. Anna and Frank got to know all the families here personally during their visit and I with my deceased wife in return visited all our families in the USA. By further taking place visits of the families a genuine intact belonging extended family developed. All families in Germany are informed and will commemorate Frank in the churches on Pentecost Sunday. We will not forget him. Thank you Frank, you are one of us. Your Heinrich and all Lahrmann families
