Tante Riet zal ik me blijven herinneren als een warm en toegankelijk mens die innerlijke rust uitstraalde. Haar humor en haar positieve levensinstelling vulde de kamer met vreugde als ze op bezoek kwam. Het is lang geleden dat ik haar voor het laatst ontmoet heb. Ergens in de jaren negentig als ik me goed herinner. Toch zijn het de hiervoor omschreven karaktereigenschappen die me bijgebleven zijn.

It was an honour to have cared for Riet, near the end of her life. To share family memories and stories of the past with Riet was like reading an historic novel.

Riet was what the word "Mother" is all about, and she would "light up" when talking about her family, which was quite often.
I loved her for her kindness in welcoming all into her home and her sense of humour, her easy going ways, and her love of stories.

Riet was a womderful mother to Abe, Pauline and Casey,,..and welcomed their spouses, Jo, Andrea and John, along with grandchildren, and great-grandchildren into her circle of love for family.
Not only mother to her own children, Riet also fostered many children and brought happiness into their lives. ....still receiving cards of thanks right to the end of her life from her foster children, who had gone on to permanent homes and lives.

Also, Riet was a very brave mental health nurse, who saved her patients from imminent death during the war years in Holland, leading them to safety.. When listening to stories of when she was a nurse, you could tell she loved what she did.....which of course was "caring for others".

Enclosed is a picture of her "100"th birthday, with a close friend.
Not only did she get to accomplish her 100th birthday, but went on to be almost "102"! I told her quite often she was "Amazing" and she would just laugh, however, she really was an amazing woman!

She will be dearly missed by her family and friends and will always be close in my heart.

Lieve tante Riet,
Grote harten openen harten. Uw hart was groot. Als tante voor mij altijd een speciaal mens die me wijze woorden doorspekt met humor influisterde.
Iemand waar je vaak aan denkt gaat nooit dood.
I will never forget you and carry you on my mind and heart. Thank you so much for your warm and tender personallity, love you..
