Rest in peace father George ; were proud of you and your accomplishments. Immigrating from Holland with my three siblings and giving me two more siblings before I arrived as the youngest child. I saw goodness in your legacy .
I know your in heaven watching us now. I am happy to have had your final moments with you.
We will always cherish all the memories we had as a family. You will remain in our hearts.
Love Yoanna

Rest in peace my dear Father. It's hard to believe you are no longer here, but comforting to know you are no longer in pain. You lived 88 good long years, raised 6 children with your devoted wife whom you loved soo much, our dear mother.
It's still sometimes hard to believe that you immigrated to Canada in 1966, but you wanted to give yourself & your family more opportunities, and that you did! We will be forever grateful to our late Aunt Ann & Uncle John for sponsoring your immigration, and the help they provided along the way. Thank-you Puppa for devoting your life to raising us, your 6 children. You filled our lives with wonderful memories, protected us & gave us unconditional love. You were soo proud of your 14 Grandchildren, whom grew to love their Opa. Your 4 Great Grandchildren brought you more joy, and seeing 3 of your Grandchildren become parents was special for you. Losing your Father at 9 yrs old in WWII was a tough go for you & your family, life changing. I pray you are now with your Father, Mother & Siblings in Heaven catching up. You worked hard, now it's your time to rest in peace. Thank-you again for everything, I love you sooo much, and will never forget you Puppa.
