In 2009 I visited my uncle Gerrit for the first time. A memorable visit just after my fathers passing. Uncle Gerrit was still in good shape and drove me with his Chrysler van to the wide surrounding of Brockville where he earlier that year had moved from Mallorytown. He was keen and a real Canadian, ad rem in communications with fellow Canadians. In 2016 I visited him again on the occasion of his 90th anniversary. He was still the same shape albeit less mobile. A problem which he, as problems with hearing, shared with other siblings of age. In character I recognized a spirit, and posture, of the Stigter family of his mother Teuntje and he proved, by developing that much activities during his adult life. Undoubtedly his decision in 1951 to emigrate from the Netherlands was invoked, among other factors, by his exploring attitude. Both in 2009 and in 2016 I was warmly welcomed and I cherish the memories. I hereby convey my condolences and blessings tot my cousins Jill, Theresa and Carla and other relatives of my family I met in 2009 and 2016.
