Dear former MP's and all who knew "Mama Weigle",

My grandma Emilie Weigle (Mama Weigle) died peacefully at 12th January 2009 in the arms of her daughter Anita Hummel (Sissi). She was in hospital for a short time because of blood poisoning. She strongly fought against it, but the illness was too much for her.

She will be staying alive in our hearts and we are very thankful that we could have her such a long time in happiness.

She often talked about all of you and was very proud and happy that so many former MP's and other people who still knew her wrote emails or cards to her.

Thanks for all!

Claudia Thaer
