John and I wanted to send our love and condolences with the passing of Tante Maartje. As I look back over the years, she was so good with visiting my mom in her final years, was never afraid to tell you what she thought, and had such a zeal for living life fully. Your mom and dad's support and friendship in those early to my family will always hold a cherished spot in my memories. Blessings and peace as you bury her as well as celebrate her life. GRACE
