I was so sad when I heard that Mr. Prosl had passed away. I have such fond memories of him growing up.He was such a character, larger than life with a heart of gold. I especially loved it when he took us all out sailing. Fun times! He was like a second father to me. My heart is breaking for Kirsten, Mrs.Prosl and the family.
