  1. For Werner Sylla, I was so sorry to hear about your brother, Gunter’s passing. I know that you will miss him very much. You always made sure he was OK, and you helped make sure that he was successful. I will miss him as well. He always had time to visit with me and to take really good care of my old 356B. We were the same age and we shared many of the same idealogies about life. Gunter was always thinking of others and their needs and concerns. It was a true pleasure to have known him for the last 36 or so years. I know he has gone to a better place. Werner, take care of yourself and your family. May God be with all of your family during this time of your loss. I am truly sorry that I was unable to attend the funeral. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of Gunter’s family.
