Dear Juultje and Family,
Words cannot express our sorrow with the loss of Bram (Dad). We are so grateful of having known Bram for so many years. I know, Juultje, it will be hard without him, the two of you have been together for so many years. Wish I could just get in the car and hug you, all of you.

Bram will be in our hearts forever with all the memories we cherish.

We wish you all the strength and health for many years to come.

We Love you,
Bert & Bunny

Even though our hearts are sad that Abe is gone, my husband, Tommy and I are truly blessed that we were able to know this wonderful man. There are no words for how much we loved Abe and his entire family, a true testament to Abe and Julie. Abe treated me like a daughter and I will forever be grateful for that kind gesture. He will be dearly missed but he left me with so many amazing memories and I will always cherish his smile and laughter in my heart and mind.

My fondest childhood memories include spending time at Oom Bram and Tante Juul's house. He was a dear family friend and godfather to my brother Dave. I always looked up to him and will never forget how kind he was to everyone. My sincere condolences to the family.
