We are very sorry for your loss. I remember Pieter and your family at many get togethers and parties between our two families. To me as a young man I was always impressed by Pieter's deep voice that could be heard above the crowd and commanded attention. No one can replace a loved one but we have the assurance in our Lord that we will be together again. Please take comfort in that. Take care and be strong.

I am writing this to express our deepest sympathies on the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. On behalf of the Swol family we remember him from being our neighbour for many years on Beechwood Court. Hold on to the many memories you and the family have created over the years.
