Dr. Tripp was our first family doctor. He was wise and caring and had a sense of humour that was healing. As a mother of three at that time, I remember and still quote his most famous line, "It's a rash of unknown origin." Nothing to worry about. He doctored with common sense addressing the demanding needs of our family. We give thanks to the Lord for the care he (and Ethel and sometimes Pixie in the office) provided.

Ons bereikte het droevige bericht van het plotseling overlijden van ons gewaardeerd familielid Pieter.
Veel familieleden koesteren mooie herinneringen aan bezoekjes bij Pieter en Pixie in Canada. In 2013 hebben zij een familiebijeenkomst voor de Canadese familie Van Oordt georganiseerd. Dit was een groot succes en versterkten de familiebanden, één van de doelstellingen van de familievereniging.

Wij wensen de familie van Vierssen Trip veel kracht toe in deze verdrietige tijd van afscheid nemen van Pieter.

Namens de Vereeniging der Familie van Oordt,
Hansje Herfst (secretaris)

bij het overlijden van Pieter wil ik graag mijn hartelijke deelneming betuigen voor alle familie leden van de familie van Vierssen Trip.
Agaath heb ik goed gekend. Rijkje en ik hebben haar vele malen bij ons ontvangen.
Pieter en Pixie hebben we thuis in Brockville bezocht. Wat een geweldig bezoek, gastvrij en gezellig.
Samen de bossen in, waar de Canadian Pacific veel te hard volgens Pieter doorheen reed. De bossen waarin Pieter experimenteerde met voeding en verticaal transport van sappen. Ik heb vele goede herinneringen aan de familie. Pieter en het hele gezin heeft het niet gemakkelijk gehad met de emigratie met hun ouders naar Canada. Wat een zegen dat hij nu rustig in ingeslapen. Moge hij rusten in vrede.

Jaap van Oordt.

Pieter was our next door neighbor when we first came to Brockville to start the Webster House Bed and Breakfast on James Street. Although he had a full patient inventory he took us in hand and cared for us until he retired. I always remember and am forever thankful in particular for one bit of advice that he gave me. I was developing a morning cough and went to see him. His diagnosis was developing bronchitis. I asked what could be done to control it. His response, "You are smoking aren't you?" I was, and from that day forward I have never used a tobacco product. I still have a sealed package, dated 15 Dec 1988, containing my pipes, tobacco and lighter. Than you again Pieter and may you rest in peace
