Dear Rita and Family
Was so very sorry to read of your dear Henk's passing. It was such a nice picture of him. I shall always remember my communion calls to the two of you, his quiet and gentle manner and his perseverance through his long-term illness.
May the Lord truly reward him with perfect happiness in Eternal Life where there is no more pain or suffering, only JOY. With thoughts, love and prayer, Sr. Elaine
