Lindbergh started a romance with a Munich hat maker, Brigitte Hesshaimer, in 1957 when he was 55 and she was 32. They had three children: Dyrk, now 45, Astrid, 43, and David, 36.

Transitions are important because they provide a link to the next paragraph. It helps so the paper isn’t choppy. When transitions are present, the paper sounds fluent, as everyday speech would be. This appeals more to the reader. The reader can also establish a connection with the writer, as if they are having an actual conversation.
