Werner von Trapp has died. Thanks to the Old Coot for the information.
Like many people, I first fell in love with the film version of The Sound of Music; then I read the book, and liked it more than the film. Werner was called "Kurt" in the movie. The more I read about Maria von Trapp, the more fascinated I became; a multifaceted woman with considerable strength. But, not an easy person. I think she did what was necessary to ensure the survival of the family as a unit.
