Mom was so very close to making it into a record for completing her 7th Dialysis Anniversary; only 50 days short!
My beautiful Mom, opening the front door of Afhangweg 8 in Horst, The Netherlands for my 'late' husband - on my wedding day.
She is so happy looking and this is the house where she came back for her last breath.
Mom in Church on my wedding day, with my baby-brother Jan to the left...
It was on February 9, 1973...
Mom congratulating me after Church...
Looking oh so happy and for sure she is now together in heaven with my late husband Frans...

Mom during the reception, where guests do present the gifts.
My Paternal Grandmother is seated here and the lady with the black/red dress was my aunt, married to Dad's younger brother. She too went to heaven after having had kidney problems and going through dialysis...
My hair was till my waist at that time!
I will show you my self made simple wedding dress another time.
“We should keep the dead before our eyes, and honor them as though still living” ― Confucius
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. - Harriet Beecher Stowe
Those that attacked us for NOT showing up at Mom's funeral, due to Pieter's health issues because of heart cramps, and me still going to rehab for my hand, we forgive their act of bitterness.
May they too find the Peace that is in our hearts!
