Sad news. He was a most interesting if not controversial man who had been ill for some time

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I knew that Kurt Dahlmann was suffering from heart attacks and other weakness in his body. Yet he lived a long life on Earth for 99 years. I was hopping that he would make 100 years but that isn't so. Those who fought during World War II are passing away one by one. Trying to make 100 years of living on Earth is still a rare thing. May Kurt Dahlmann find peace in Heaven!

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao
