    We will never forget Tineke, as we called her and her husband Pietje. What a lovely couple. They still where in love from the first day they met here in Holland. We did visit them in Arizona and they drive us around, showing nature and buildings from the 19e century. They both loved music and on monday afternoon, Peter played his instrument and Tineke did sing, also dutch songs. People loved them. Since her Pietje passend away, she missed him so mutch. Now they are together again and watch us from above. We will keep a corner in our heart for them, never forget. May they rest in peace. You children, have to be proud of such mam and dad. Our condoleances, love and we wish you our best wishes. ✝️✝️✝️
