Requiescat in Pace

OatieOf your charity please pray for the soul of the recently departed Grietje Kuik Koerts. Her sudden and unexpected departure has left us with deep grief and sorrow. I will from now on have an emptiness in my soul that has her shape until such a time as we shall be re-united in Christ.

She died in her sleep Februari 10 in her home in the Netherlands after returning home from having spent a whole month of visiting with me and my family in South Florida. Those memories are now more precious than I ever thought they would be. This picture is her at Lantana beach. She has never enjoyed a winter at the beach that much before. I am glad I was able to share that with her.

May the Lord embrace you in His love dear Ootie.

Your grandson,

Gregory (Jarno) Wassen +
