    Mr. Dielemans was a wonderful man, always in good spirits and was always one I looked forward to seeing when we would have get-togethers. I am privileged to have known him. Opa, you will be missed but never, ever forgotten. I will remember your laugh and your smile always.
    My sincere condolences to his family.

    Wat een prachtige levensomschrijving. Mam had het zo vaak over jullie. Alle ontvangen kerstkaarten kregen altijd een speciaal plaatsje en ik vond ze allemaal bij elkaar gebonden na haar overlijden. Ik wens allen veel kracht toe bij het dragen van dit verlies. Veel liefs uit Nederland.

    Sad that you are gone Uncle Peter. And only a few weeks before your older sister – my mother who went before you – Jeanneke’s 91st birthday appropriately enough 4th July. Very fond memories of time luckily spent with you, Aunt Mary, and my cousing in the US. Much love from New Zealand.
