      Address of letter: Sent from; Oldenburg, Old Lufkaminn 50, Germany

      My Dear Children,
      I have some sad news, our dear Mother is no longer with us. She died on the 12th at 3AM. She had been sick for seven weeks. It was her heart and kidney, and she was feeling a little better, but on top of all that she got the flu. Monday evening the doctor came and gave her a shot, because she had so much trouble breathing. After the shot she started breathing easier and went to sleep.
      Linda was sleeping in the same room with Mother, at midnight we looked in on her and she was sleeping, at 2 AM we realized that she had died in her sleep, she looked like she was still asleep. She died without more pain, very quietly.
      My dear son Willie, you have lost a very dear and loving Mother, and I am a old very unhappy Father. I lost everything when your mother died, your Mother was the best and most important thing in my life, without her life is a burden, wish I could have died with her. My happiness has gone. I loved her so much, we always were very happy, she had so much worry in her life and now she is sleeping peacefully.
      We have always hoped we could die together, and now she has left me alone, life has no meaning for me anymore. We loved each other more than most people do. My dear son, what can I do alone in this world. I am sitting here watching her peaceful face, flowers around her death bed, she always liked lots of flowers. Mother always told me, if she should die before I do, I should live with Berta, but I can't do that, I cannot leave her alone here. I can visit her at the cemetery everyday, otherwise I will have too much time on my hands.
      I will move in with Linda, she is such a good daughter.
      My dear son, I am so upset and really don't know what is left for me in this world, sending you last greeting from Mother and don't forget your old Father.
      Our love to you, your Father and Sisters. Please write soon Father.


      Death notice: Tonight my unforgettable wife, our dear Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother died after a short illness. The Family of Wilhelm Egberts.

      Wilhelm Egberts --Son-in-law of Rudolf Thiel --Alexander, Germany ? 39.II
