I very much enjoyed reading the other reflections about my Uncle Ludwig. I didn’t know him well as I lived in Chicago and he in Ft Worth. I was only 4 when he died, but I have a few fond memories of his visits bearing gifts of coloring books and Texas themed trinkets. I had no doubt that he was a great man, but now I can be certain. Thank you all for your kind words. They mean a great deal.
