"Remember Gernot very well as a co-worker in Atlanta where he picked me up on my first day in the US from the airport and hotel and worked with him for 2 1/2 years at Mueller Color Plate. For the first month I lived with his family at his home before finding my own place. He was always kind to me and a most pleased friend. Bernd Nagy- Helen, Georgia and Tucson, Arizona. Our condolences go out to the family, Bernd and Linda Nagy. "
