    My Dad was Frank Daigler, Otto's son. Our family is saddened to hear of Albert's passing. I never met him, but we always heard stories about him and his brother and sisters, especially Eileen. My Dad passed away on 1/2/12, after a lengthy illness, but he would have wanted us to remember your family. Our thought and prayers are with you.
