I first Meet Anni at the Grape Community Hospital in the summer of 1972. She was working in the laundry room at the time and I was working there for the summer. She was always very friendly to me. I was fascinated with her stories of growing up in Germany plus the stories of her father's involvement with the Nazi party and Hitler during WWII. She had a great laugh and made my summer job very enjoyable.
