Although we've only know Almut for about 15 years, she is a very special lady to our family. She grew up in Germany under Hitler and then later lived near the Clintons. In fact, Almut's husband taught Bill Clinton to play music! She was a model, a designer, an educated woman, a gracious host, a generous guest and a lady of class and style. Even in her 90's, we'd have to ask her to spin around so we could admire the latest style she was wearing. We sat and listen to many stories she had from her life. My favorite was one when she was remembering the Clintons, Bill and HIllary, their extended family and all the problems they had. Then while speaking about Hillary, she paused, and with a straight face said, 'Nobody liked her then either'! We laugh the rest of the night.Almut is a very special lady. I will deeply miss her.Donovan & Susan Kuehl, Willmar
