Tante Liesa [Elisabeth Reger (nee Kornelsen)] is still alive living in Germany with her granddaughter. She has had a stroke and is bedridden. She actually visited Leamington in 1988 and met my Dad [Henry Kornelsen], your grandmother [Maria Mietz Kornelsen (May 5, 1900 - April 2, 1991) and lots of other relatives. My father [Henry Kornelsen] encouraged her to write down how it was after the rest of the family left Russia, and after my trip this summer I asked a friend [Ella Pankatz ] if she would translate it. The document is a result of that translation ...." - Margreta (Kornelsen) Gronski
