Oh Louise, we just learned tonight of Kal’s death. Both Jason and I are morning (SIC) his loss, and wondering how you’re doing. I can honestly say that you and Kal are two of my favorite people in the world, and while it’s too late to call you tonight, I’m going to call you soon. It was so clear that you were utterly devoted to Kal, and you were so good for him (as he was for you). My heart goes out to you, I hope you’re okay, and if you want to get away from the city for a while we would absolutely love you to come to Minnesota and stay here on the farm with us.
I treasure the time I spent with you in May.
All my best,
Words can’t express the sorrow and shock I felt when hearing this sad news. Mr. Opperman had such energy and determination I believed we would be celebrating his 100th birthday at Carnegie Hall!
The world will remember him as a magnificent musician, teacher and artisan, but my memory will also be of a magnificent, caring human being. When I moved to New York City, Mr. Opperman and Louise treated me like family for which I am eternally grateful. I am truly honored to have known him and learned from him.
My thoughts and prayers are with Louise and their family during this difficult time.
Peace and Love
Dear Louise, We are saddened at the news of Kals passing. Having known him only briefly when we met at your Mom and Dads house on several occasions, we were impressed with his kindness and his superb intellect.
We will miss him.
May God rest his soul. Our thoughts and prayers are with you,
