GERD NOLTE IN MEMORIAM


GERD NOLTE IN MEMORIAM
AUGUST 1, 2006

Gerd Nolte died on February 8, 2006 in 
Frankfurt, Germany, in the same hospital
he was born. He was around 72 years old 
and suffered from pancreatic cancer and 
diabetes. 

I called his house over 100 times during 
the past 7 months but never received an 
answer until his sister-in-law from Canada 
answered yesterday to say that he had died 
and she was straightening out his affairs 
and small estate. 

Gerd worked with me at ONA Flight Dispatch 
from approximately 1969 until 1974 when he 
returned to Germany to dispatch for 
Lufthansa. He worked there until around 
the year 2000 when he retired. 

Should anyone want to send a note of
condolence I have his brother and 
sister-in-law´s address and phone number 
in Toronto, Canada.

Kind Regards, Sam Rogers, Dallas

A Dream Within a Dream   
by Edgar Allan Poe  

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow:
You are not wrong who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand--
How few! yet how they creep 
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep--while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
