12/24/03 Roy Schreffler Wow, many thanks for posting this wonderful shot of Otto and especially his wife. 

Waaaaaay back in late 1964 or early 1965, I was in the 6th grade at a little elementary school in Bethlehem Township (near Easton, PA) and right in the middle of class, the door opens and this girl comes into class with her mother, to join us mid-year, and the girl  was none other than Otto's daughter, and her name was, get this, Racine Harwi.  We got to talking during the year and she told me her dad was a stock car driver and was killed recently on the track.  She said she had some photo albums of him and the cars, and I asked her to bring them in, so she did, and I got to look through them, man if I could only see them now.  Racine ended up quitting high school and we lost touch, but seeing her mom in this photo brings back memories of Racine, she was the spitting image of her mom.
