Our sincere condolences on the loss of your father and grandfather Andy Hijma.
We have good memories of our uncle Andy.
We have visited him twice and had a wonderful time in Dunnville.
It was alsof special when he was back in Hijum, where he visited his parental home and his brother and sister in law (our father and mother) Rients and Dukke Hijma.
We send you our love, Hendrik and Sjoerdje Hijma.

Andy, we never did get our quartet up and running - or should that be singing. My memory takes me back to Burlington Roadshow Chorus when we sang together for a few years. ( I just can't remember how many ). I do recall many nights when you had to leave practice early to go pick up the papers for night delivery.. Be sure to say 'Hi' to Mo Edgar when you get to heaven. And find another Lead for your quartet. I'll be sure to keep singing here as long as I can, and I'll remember you, Andy.

Gerry Goodwin,

Yvonne & Dave Larmour

To Andy and Debbie and family, my sympathies. Your father would come into McDonalds and visit with Tina Schilstra and I over coffee. Robert Caughell.
