On behalf of Annie & Peter van Zandwijk, Jantine, Carla, Arjan and Anita we would like to pay our respect to (Tante) Ge and the family in Canada. We all have very fond memories of (Tante) Ge and (Ome) Sinus. We were very sad to say goodbye to them when they emigrated from Holland to Canada in 1976.

When they still lived in Holland they frequently came up to Annie & Pete's house in Geldermalsen in the evening. Ome Sinus would say: Geke you go and check on the children, I believe I can hear something (even when there was nothing to be heard) ... and Ge would happily oblige and take one of the children down for a bottle or a bit of playtime. As children we could get away with almost anything, they really appreciated a bit of naughtiness, a laugh and a joke.

Annie & Peter have many fond memories of the time they spend together when they were in their twenties and thirties living close to each other in Buurmalsen and Geldermalsen. But also across the many miles, no matter how much time there was between visits here or there, it was like seeing them yesterday. She will be remembered by us as a warm and kindhearted sister- in-law and aunt.

We would like to thank the family in Canada for looking after Ge during the last years of her life. We are very grateful for the love and support you gave her.
