a gift from them

One of the things Juergen had to do with his brother and sisters was to clean out the room of their father. He was living in an assisted living home. He did not have many things anymore. But he had a coffee pot from his 25th wedding Anniversary. And everyone said it should go to Jürgen and I. I'm not really sure Jürgen was even aware it was a silberhochzeit kaffeekanne. He just knew it was fancy. And he gave it to me. And I cried. It was like receiving a gift for my 25th wedding anniversary from the two of them.

That is so very special. I'm sure you will cherish it always and when the time comes, pass it on to Nicole. Mom
