I grew up with Monica in grade school. I spent more time at their home then my own. The camping trips were so much fun. I have a lot of good memories. He was such a nice man always caring and making sure we were ok. Very loving. Thinking of Kinga, Monica and the family. May he now be with Tony and rest in peace.

We are so sorry to find out Marco has passed away, our cincere condolences. We have great memories of Marco and Kinga visiting the north of the Netherlands: Zuidhorn ( Groningen)many years ago; it was such a memorable day and evening and we enjoyed your company very, very much. I was always looking forward to read the annual letter, he spoke so very proud of his family. In Dutch we say: Heel veel sterkte...hang in there. Love, Margriet & Bauke
