Condolence from Dorothy Gimpelj on January 12th, 2022 9:22 AM

Jerry and the extended families,
My heartfelt condolence on the loss of your life long loving and committed partner to Jerry, and a loving family member to all of you.
Being a neighbour, a few units down, for the last four years, I only saw and spoke to Annie when she was out on your front porch, as I passed by on our walks (with Tatum). I saw how she was a very strong woman dealing with her condition, and Jerry standing solidly by her side assisting as he could, as did many of the other family members.
May you all cherish your fond memories of her and keep her always close to you in your hearts.
May you be comforted as much as possible knowing that she is at peaceful rest now, with God, in the gardens of heaven, and sparkling in the stars, as she will be looking down upon you all, as you continue your journeys through your lives.
Sincerely, Dorothy (and Tatum)

Condolence from Anne and Bert Langendyk on January 12th, 2022 9:29 AM

Dear Jerry, Edwin, Norma, Dave and families,

We were so sad to hear about the passing of your beautiful and much loved wife and mother. We have so many fond memories of Annie. She was a very graceful lady, soft spoken and wise. She was a very accomplished seamstress and I remember her hands were always busy knitting something for someone. She was quick to lend a helping hand to all who needed one. We send our deepest condolences to your entire family. May God’s love and peace comfort and keep you.
Warmly and sincerely, Bert and Elaine Knip

Condolence from Lientje and Ida on January 15th, 2022 1:40 PM

Dear Gerard, Edwin, Norma, David and family,

We still can’t believe that your beloved wife and (grand)mother and our beloved sister Annie isn’t among us anymore. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and – same as for you – the passing of Annie left a big hole in our hearts that can’t be filled. We’re comforted with the thoughts that Annie is no longer in pain and joined our parents and brothers Ankie and Henk in heaven. It hurts that we weren’t at the funeral service yesterday, but we felt strongly connected with you while watching the service online.

Lientje and Ida
