Dear Michaelis family, I wish to extend my condolences on the passing of Walter Michaelis. I am the oldest son of Harold August Pinz. My family tree shows that Walters mother, Wihlelmina, is my Great Aunt. I again wish to express my sadness at this time of grief.
My deepest condolence for all in the passing of Walter. Walter is the son of my Great Aunt Wilhelmina. I will say a prayer for Walter.
