So to add onto my brother’s last post..

I also am Grateful for the life of Gunther Katz.  I am grateful for all of the memories that I have of him as one of my father figures.  I had the privilege of spending the last four days with his family, while they planned putting his body to rest; the love that was expressed by them and then at the service by his friends.  I am not the only person who Gunther left an impression on, that is obvious.

I am grateful that I was able to be there for one of my friends who I have know my whole life and for being a part of the Katz family as they are a part of mine, the Wilker family.

Thank you Gunther and Lenny (my father), for bringing us all together many, many years ago and for all of the wonderful lessons and memories that you have given to us in our lives.
