Kees, we want to express our sympathy in the loss of your mother, our cousin Allie. She was such a funny person and we would laugh so hard whenever she would tell her stories. A very special lady has left us but she will always be remembered fondly.

It has been with the greatest of sadness we heard of the loss of one of the most fabulous aunties we could have had. Her sense of fun and laughter could be heard all over our place when she stayed with us. We all enjoyed her company and stories of adventures she had been part of. Giving us all a picture of her adored family and friends. Whenever we rang for a chat, we could never make it a short call Arlie had HEAPS to say, which we all enjoyed. Again she will be greatly missed but NEVER forgotten. We were blessed to have been able to share her and condolences are extended to all who knew and loved her. Ka Kaha

To my dear Tante Alie

It sadens me to hear my wonderful Aunty has passed away but I have the assurance she's with her heavenly Father.
Whilst we lived thousands of miles apart-me in New Zealand and you in the USA- you held a special place in my heart. The few times we met in Holland and New Zealand left a lasting impression of a joy-filled Aunty who loved life and lived it to the full. You made me and many people laugh.
You will be sorely missed but we'll catch up in heaven and I know who will do all the talking.
Much love and thoughts to her family in the USA and the Netherlands.
