In Memoriam

This morning, 9:15 am local time, my father-in-law passed away. He was surrounded by his loved ones, and died very peacefully. Sending him love on the path he is on now. We will miss him. This was quite unexpected. Five or six weeks ago, he still was almost perfectly healthy.

I am glad Sander got to spend some time with his dad before he passed. The cremation will be on Thursday. Sander will be able to attend.

Via deze weg wil ik jullie heel veel sterkte toewensen.
Wat fijn voor Sander dat hij zijn vader nog heeft gesproken.
Er brandt hier een kaarsje ter nagedachtenis.

Lieve groet
Irene (GGM)

Wat moeilijk, Karen.. Sander in Nederland, jij gewoon thuis. Juist nu jullie elkaar zo nodig hebben.
Heel veel sterkte!

Oh! I am so sorry. Hugs to you and Sander. I am so glad that he was able to be with his father while he passed.

I'm very sorry for your loss, Karen. Glad Sander could be there, though.

I'm so sorry to hear about your father in law.

Really glad that Sander was able to get to Boston for the things he needed when time was so precious. And then get on the plane. It's overwhelming just to think about his getting there in time to see his Dad, and have his Dad know his presence, and then have him go so fast. My heart and condolences goes out to the whole family.
