Dear Trudy, Jessie, Albert and all other familymembers,

How very sorry we are to hear that your wonderful dad has passed away. We remember him as dear uncle Lou who came to visit us in The Netherlands with Albert and Corrinne. Enjoying his bami in a Chinees restaurant in Assen and talking about the good old days with his sister in law Alie.
Every christmass we exchanged christmass wishes with him and he always tried to write in Dutch as much as possible, to practice, he explained.
The last time we saw him he spoke a lot of Dutch, even more than he spoke American. But kind and loving as always.
This is how we will remember him.

Know that all of you are in our thoughts in this sad times even though we are miles away.

With love,

Nanda and Jorke van der Pol

Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It's a reality though for God cannot lie!
