To the Kage Family,
I will always remember Hermann. I recall him being very passionate about two things in his life, his family and engineering. I always looked up to him as an engineer and was intrigued by what engineers do. I am sure this had influence into my decision to also become an engineer and the passion I have for the profession. I am thankful I had the privilege to know Hermann. I pray for strength and comfort during this time for you family.
