Please accept our deepest sympathy concerning the loss of your father. Gottfried was a very special person to the Textor family and we have many fond memories of him growing up. I sincerely regret not being able to attend the funeral and viewing, Bobbie and I are in the middle of preparing our house to sell and the current circumstances prohibit us from traveling back to Ohio. God bless all of you Cordially, Bobbie and Jerry Textor
