Grandpa William,

I wish I had the chance to know you more. I have heard you were a solider in your time during WWII in Karlsruhe, Germany, were you met my mother's mum Johanna Krauss, saved her from the bombing that took place, you were a great Hero and should be acknowledged for that.

You have done so much for many people. You were a great father to my mother Jane Krauss, you gave her love and kindness in a harsh world that may not have accepted her for being mixed, you gave her family support that no one else could give.
I know you accepted me kindheartedly with love when I was born despite the fact I looked different and people may say otherwise but you were always apart of our family.
You will always be my mother's father and my grandfather. Without you, my mother nor I or my siblings would be here today and it gives me a deep respect for my family and our heritage.

You have did well and deserve your place amongst our Heroes.

Rest well Grandpa, I will always remember you. Bless your soul.

Love Zwieblekopf J
