After she passed we learned about her passion for folding plastic bags into triangles. It was such an interesting detail about her that I'd never known. When Mommy returned home we all sat together and folded them. Even now, I still see some folded plastic bags.

What are your best memories of time together?

Lisa Willner
In 2005 I met my aunt and uncle (Helene and Monty) in Holzminden Germany. We got a tour of the town where Oupa grew up and learned about the Hodenberg's deep history in Holzminden. We were treated like royalty. So much was revealed I saw just how much Helene wanted to absorb it. It was the only time where it was ever just "us". Living across an ocean from my aunt and uncle meant one-on-one time was rare. I remember the people we met, the places we stopped and the laughs we had (not Monty ;-) while trying to fix the German speaking GPS (naturally we called Hedley).
