(A huge acknowledgement of accomplishment and appreciation to Lilly Valgerdur Oddsdóttir, Reykjavik, Iceland for her never ending heartfelt search to uncover the truth about what happened to Ragna Ester Sigurdardottir an Icelandic woman missing from her family since late 1947 after coming to the United States as a post World War II war bride. Ragna's family in Iceland learned the truth from Lilly in the latter part of August 2012)
