Dear grandma,

I remember when Ruud and I visited you together with my dad and Loeki. You were happy to see me, very clear of mind and also funny at times.
It was so nice to see you and be able to hug you.
It feels a little weird not being able to say goodbye in Washington right now, but on the other hand we have made nice memories to cherish.

Dear grandma, be happy where you are now ...

Miss you,

Ana, the Dutch exchange student
