    We are very sorry for your loss and we are thinking of you. We will not forget Emils smile and sense of humor when he called me „Ireno“ (mix of Irene and Eno, his boxer-dog ). Emil and Marianne were close friends and very kind neighbours in Bagdad.
    With heartfelt condolences.
    Irene and Christine
