We had a wonderful time visiting with Oma. Lydia adored Oma and loved smiling and laughing with her. Kara was a little bit slower in warming up to her. We love you OMA! It was hard to leave Oma because this may very well have been the last time we get to see her. Oma has been very special to me and she has taught me so many things. I remember every summer after we moved to WI I would go spend a week with Oma and Opa. I also remember having to run just to keep up with her because she walked so fast. I also had the priviledge of living with her for a semester before I got married while I was teaching in Chicago. Having been through WWII in Holland, Oma told me so many stories. I wish now I would have recorded her experiences or at least written them down.
