Dear Mom, Thank-you for being such a wonderful mom.I will miss you every day of my life. You lived life with dignity and perfection. From the day you were born in Holland you faced life with determination and courage. Out smarting the Germans when you were just a teenager to sewing coutoure clothing for the wealthy as a young women .Having the smarts to fall in love with the very handsome Martin and taking the chance of a new life in Canada.Never one to count on others mom and dad worked hard at many careers using their natural talents.Learning English plus going to school they keep a roof over our heads and we never felt deprived of love and adventure. As a family we took amazing road trips to visit family and our beautiful country.Mom taught us to love nature,love to learn.and always have Plan B. Thanks for a wonderful life with you and dad and Ed.Miss you hugs and kisses to Dad and all the family in heaven.xxxx

Before I got married to Frances van der Kruk, Carolyn was my landlady and I enjoyed her cooking very much.
We happened thru circumstances beyond our control to spend our wedding night at their house in Edmonton Alberta.
Our sincere condolences with the loss of your Mom,
Uncle Fons, Michael, Jeanne & Joanneke.
